Run into a computer glitch? Don't know how to do something?

This How-To Article shows you how to access the best in free computer support.


Finding Computer Support

The recently redesigned Computertim Technologies Forums make it easy to receive computer support. Why call tech support for your software when you can access computer support directly from our site?

To access the main part of the board, just go to: http://www.computertim.com/y.

Posting questions on the board is simple, all you need to do is select a software product that you need help with, then click the "New Thread" button. You can also browse through other support questions. One of the helpful features available in this forum is the ability to receive an E-mail when a response has been posted to your question. This is called "Notification", and can be set by simply checking a check box when posting your question. You can by notified about any thread in the board that you choose.

Once your question is posted, it is available to our tech support team, as well as any visitor who is registered in the forum. Using the discussion board allows better collaboration, allowing anyone to post a possible solution to your issue.

The discussion board has many helpful features which make it easier for you to work with the message board.

--Message Notification - be notified when a topic you select is replied to.

--Improved Interface - thanks to the new "tree" structure of this board, moving around to different areas is much easier.

--Instant Messaging - this new message board allows you to leave private, recipient-view only messages. This allows this forum to act as a "personal messaging center".

--Personalization - each member of this forum can customize it in many ways to fit the way that they use it.

--User Profiles - the Profile button (in the top navigation if you are logged in), provides an easy way to set up a user profile.

--Smileys - each message that is posted can make use of graphical smilies! (Demo: :) )

--Search - don't have time to browse the forums? Use the search feature (in the top navigation) to search for a specific topic.

--Help - need help using the forums? Help is only a click away in the top navigation.

--Announcements - Computertim Technologies can send important announcements out to forum members.

--Moderator features - want to become a moderator? Computertim Technologies is happy to let you know that control features of this system are very easy to use, with a "one-click" system to lock or delete posts or topics.

We encourage you to use our Discussion boards for your support questions. Just go to: http://www.computertim.com/y to start.
