The Residents’ Computer Room is intended to facilitate access by Fairhaven residents to the basic conveniences normally associated with a home computer, such as e-mail, playing interactive on-line games, writing letters and documents, and web-surfing. Since tutoring and on-site assistance is very limited, it will be of interest primarily to those who already have at least entry-level proficiency in using the Microsoft Windows operating system with Office and web browser software programs.
There are four desktop workstations. Each PC has the Windows 10 operating system installed, together with a number of other popular software applications and some games. Each machine has Microsoft Office 2013 installed as well as the Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome web browsers. The Microsoft Photos app provides some rudimentary photo editing capability.
All workstations also include high-speed Internet access, for which there is no charge to the user.
Peripheral hardware consists a color laser printer/scanner/copier as well as a wifi router for personal laptop access to the Internet, again, for which there is no charge to the user.
