Windows 10

SeniorNet Kapiti is currently recommending that if you have not already downloaded Windows 10 then you should wait a little longer until you hear from us. There are still constant upgrades and alterations being made to Windows 10 so we feel it’s prudent to wait a while – you have 12 months to accept the free upgrade so there’s no rush!

We are developing a workshop for members to explain Windows 10 and will advise you when it is on.


What a great way to keep up with the latest technology. As with all changes, special workshops are conducted for tutors as they have to know the changes that have taken place to be able to pass them on through the courses that we run. The more tutors we have the better for everyone. A great atmosphere has been created within this group of members so contact Kuini at and come along to the next Tutors Workshop on 3 September at 9:30am.


Have you renewed your subscription for this financial year? If not, then next month’s Newsletter will be the last you hear from us!

You will need a current subscription and membership card to attend the upcoming courses Windows 10, Managing Data, Managing Photos… and what about that new smartphone or tablet you need help with? If you’re coming to any of our workshops you will also need to bring your membership card.
