Windows Help & Advice 127 – Anniversary Update tips

wha127I feature heavily in this month’s Windows Help & Advice, which is now on the news stands. There are three Anniversary Update themed tutorials for starters, covering tablets, the Start menu/Taskbar and Action Centre respectively. UK users also get to read my guide to making your PC hack-proof, and we round things off with my regular four-page Support Squad column, answering reader questions.

Individual issues now cost £5.49 each, and you can also subscribe from as little as £5/quarter (digital-only).

Blues News

Blues News 2016-06The 2016-17 football season is upon us already, and I’m continuing my long association with Birmingham City’s official matchday programme by contributing to its On This Day section. This provides highlights of three games played on the date in years gone by, compiled from old newspaper reports and other material.

Windows Help & Advice, issue 125

wha125The latest issue of Future’s magazine for Windows users is on the newsstands now. I contributed the main feature – 50 best apps for Windows 10 – plus there’s an outing for my command-line feature from Maximum PC (sadly this contains the wrong body copy from a previous feature) and another showing for my guide to managing your email with PopTrayU. I also wrote – as per usual – the magazine’s Q&A column, Support Squad.
