Digital Spring Cleaning

Give your tech the spring cleaning it needs and deserves. For today’s post, the blog team at Greenrock Property Management has compiled a list of tips and tricks for residents at Village Green Apartments (50 Alexander Street, 40 Alexander Street, 55 Maitland Street) who care about their digital devices.

 

Start with the basics

 

You don’t have to spend a dime to make your favourite digital device look like new. Start by using a soft cloth to gently wipe away fingerprints and dust. Use these tips from Apple to ensure your basic cleaning is safe and successful.

 

Get rid of extra stuff

 

If your computer is bogged down by hidden files and cookies you know nothing about, let alone need, consider downloading a program that can omit obscure files from your hard drive. CleanMyMac3 is one popular option for Apple customers, while P.C. Cleaner Inc. is a recommended program for PC users.

 

Save what matters most

 

Avoid losing precious photos, movies and documents by backing up your digital device this spring. Consider an online option, such as Carbonite, Crashplan, or for Apple users, iCloud.

 

Unsubscribe to unwanted emails

 

Give your email inbox a thorough cleaning this spring. Unsubscribe to annoying daily advertisement emails with assistance from unroll.me. The program makes a list of all of the emails you are currently subscribed to and allows you to unsubscribe in just one click.

 

Visit a specialist

 

Still having problems with your tech, or do you need help cleaning your software from a professional? Luckily, there are many specialists near Village Green Apartments who can help, including Ask Computers (111 Front Street East), which is about a five-minute drive or 15-minute train ride away.
