Computer Users Group

The April meeting of the NASAC Computer Users Group will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday at the Husted Fire and Rescue building, 6215 Springfield Xenia Road in Springfield. The entrance to the meeting room is located at the rear (west side) of the building. Look for the NASAC sign on the service door on the north-west side of the building.

The public is welcome to attend this free meeting. The presentation will be about installing “God Mode” on your computer, and exactly what it will do for you. God Mode is a special folder in Windows that gives you quick access to over 200 tools and settings that are normally tucked away in the Control Panel and other windows and menus. You’ll now have instant access to all these settings without digging through layers of menus. There will also be a Q&A session, general discussion, and membership drawing for door prizes.
