Welcome to the new Basic Computer Information website. Use the menu at the top to navigate to the different pages. I have resigned the website to be more user friendly and added more information. Take your time and look around. Be sure and click on Goodwill Learning Foundation (GLF) link here or GLF Icon on the left panel. The GLF's site is loaded with up to date information on all the new technologies. This site is very safe so don't be afraid to click on any button (link). Learn how to make this your Home page?
That's right it is a dot info (.info) not a dot com (.com) so if you don't make this page your Home Page the next time you want to come back here you will just need to enter basiccomputer.info in the address bar. Don't worry about the http// or the www. we don't need to put that into the address bar anymore.
Don't be afraid to click on any of the links I have put on this website. I have checked them all out and they are safe. All the links are in gold font or an icon so they are easy to identify. Although the sites are safe, many have ads on them.
