Agenda Windows 7 Printing Microsoft Outlook Microsoft Excel Staff Resources
Windows 7 All computers were updated to Windows 7 over the summer. Remember your user ID and password.
Printing With the Windows 7 upgrade, you might not be able to use your current printer. If your printer is not listed or OneNote comes up when attempting to print, you will need to be set up on one of the school’s network printer. Talk with your school’s secretary and ask if there is a printer near to the kitchen that you will be able to use.
Printing When you find a printer you can use, email your program manager with the location and name (if known) of the printer. For example, Buckman – Annex Office or Bridlemile – Staff Room Your program manager can add the printer which will allow you to print.
