Public Computer Updates

by VC/UHV Librarian on 2017-05-31T16:01:09-05:00

We've updated the public computers in the library. The computers on the first floor - open area and student lab - are finished. The computers in the Media Center and the study rooms are being updated this week.

Here are some of the changes you will notice:

  • The default browser is Chrome
  • Firefox has been removed because it would not accept necessary security changes or a default home page
  • Microsoft Office 2016 has been installed and icons will appear on the desktop
  • Microsoft Office templates work again
  • VLC is the player for media (music and videos)
  • Quick Time (for playing music and videos) is gone

The computer updates also impacted printing in the library. It's FIXED!! You shouldn't get any more error messages or have the computer try and print to OneNote. Duplex (double-sided) printing is still available but you'll have to manually select it. The default printer is black and white.

We will reinstate printing charges on Monday, June 5, 2017.
