It is an indication of how uncomfortable I am learning new software that I am so late to this Google party. My Windows Office suite is set to expire and I didn’t want to spend $130 USD to renew it. I did a bit of research on free software (that is, I asked my kids) and learned that I already had access to all this stuff via my Gmail account.
I could see some stuff lurking there: photos friends had sent me, documents I was to edit and return, but I didn’t understand how the whole thing worked. “Oh, it’s intuitive!” the kids said. Maybe for them. But for me, who didn’t turn on a computer until I was 40 years old, it is like learning a foreign language- very slow with a lot of mistakes.
To the rescue: my dear friend, my local library. They have classes to teach those of us that do not find it intuitive. And they are free!
