Closed

When using any campus computers, always remember to log out when you have finished your session. If you do not log out, the next person using the same computer will have access to your account. Also note that you can only be logged into one campus computer at any given time, so forgetting to log out will mean not having network access on any other campus computer.

Saving

Any work you do on campus library or lab computers should be saved to an external media device such as a USB flash drive, as files cannot be saved directly to college computer drives. You can purchase USB drives from the College Bookstore.

Alternatively, you can attach files to an email message and send the message to your personal email account.

Coping with Version Incompatibility

The software on Douglas College computers may be of a different version from the software on your home computer. This may present difficulties when you try to open files. The best way to deal with such problems is to save your file as the older version, which is an option available to you in most applications.

To save your document in a different format:

  1. Select File > Save As
  2. Give your document a filename
  3. Click the down arrow to the left of the Save as type field for a drop-down list of program versions
  4. Select a version from this list
  5. Click Save

Are you unsure what file format you should choose? Save your document in Rich Text format (RTF) or as a plain text (TXT) file.
