August 1, 2016 at 7:00 PM –  E-Mail – What is Bcc? – BCC stands Blind Carbon Copy. It refers to the practice of sending an email to multiple recipients without disclosing the individual emails addresses. While sending the same email/message to multiple recipients, it is a common practice for most of us by separating the email addresses with a comma or semi-colon and insert all those addresses in the To: filed. When emails are sent in this way, each receiver is able to see the complete list of recipient email addresses to which the same message is being sent to. Unlike To:, the BCC: option allows you to hide the recipients in email messages. In other words, when emails are sent using BCC:, the receiver will not be able to see the list of recipient email addresses. Thus using BCC is a smart way to protect the privacy of the recipients.

The Senior Tech Group brings technology users together to share knowledge and experience. User groups represent the spirit of the frontier, a community getting together to Clinic – Everyone welcome! We do not have any prerequisites, just come, ask questions, bring your tech issues and enjoy. Glenn will be at the Library for one-on-one help and group discussion of computer use issues and to help with questions you have about any presentation session (programs) or any other tech questions you might have.do things that no individual ought to have to do alone. User groups are founded on the principle of “members helping members.”  We are particularly interested in helping those who have limited or no experience with computers so they may participate in the rapid transition from traditional means of communications and commerce to the Internet. So please invite your "non-connected" neighbors to come along to a meeting or clinic and see how easily we can help them learn what they need to know.  And please understand that, while a listed presentation topic may not be of particular interest, the discussion often branches into other topics of interest to those attending and that there is no meeting where you don't learn something new.

An Important Note:  Along with much praise for the STG and what we do at our presentations, there are some of our attendees who say "their eyes get glazed over" at how quickly we move through the different screens and options.  WE HEAR YOU!   We have kicked this around and are committed to make no demonstration clicks or entries  on the computer image on the TV screen without making sure everyone knows what are doing and how/why we are doing it.

Senior Tech Group Members (If you attended at least once, you are a member), please let us know what you would like us to cover in the future.
