Senior Computer Skills

Customer: I have a huge problem. A friend has placed a screen saver on my computer, but every time I move the mouse, it disappears.

Tech support: How may I help you?
Customer: I'm writing my first email.
Tech support: OK, and what seems to be the problem?
Customer: Well, I have the letter 'a' in the address, but how do I get the little circle around it?

A woman customer called the Canon help desk with a problem with her printer.
Tech support: Are you running it under windows?
Customer: 'No, my desk is next to the door, but that is a good point. The man sitting in the cubicle next to me is under a window, and his printer is working fine.'

Tech support: 'Okay Bob, let's press the control and escape keys at the same time. That brings up a task list in the middle of the screen. Now type the letter 'P' to bring up the Program Manager.'
Customer: I don't have a P.
Tech support: On your keyboard, Bob.
Customer: What do you mean?
Tech support: 'P'.....on your keyboard, Bob.
Customer: I'M NOT GOING TO DO THAT!

  2. har! As long as I have been using Windows you would thing I'd memorized all of the keyboard shortcuts. But then I remember one of my favorite Quotes ever from one of the smartest people ever to live:

    “I don't need to know everything, I just need to know where to find it, when I need it."
    ― Albert Einstein

    Have yourself a fabulous day! xoxo

  9. It works the other way also. I got a call from "Microsoft Tech Support" and the man with the Indian accent informed me that Microsoft noticed strange things coming out of my machine. I asked if it were in the Windows registry. "Yes, yes that's what it is". I told him (the truth) that I don't use Microsoft products and don't have a Windows registry and that I use Linux. "What's that?". I supposed he's never heard of Apple either.

    Watch out for those calls, they're scams.

  11. I worked in tech support, so I have stories! Perhaps the funniest was the time one of my co-workers went to a user's desk and told her to press F8. She kept pushing the F key, then the 8 key!
