Total confusion

I bought a new notebook a few months ago so I could complete my reports in my car. Well, I was in the process of writing out a narrative and what I was writing was not what was showing up on the screen. I was continually correcting and re-correcting and re-re-correcting. I had no idea what in the world was going on.


It wasn't until I approached my daughter that she showed me the problem. Apparently my notebook has a function on the space bar that switches the computer language between English and Spanish. I was writing my report in Spanish! When I thought I had all of the corrections made I submitted the report.


The next day I received a not so nice e-mail from the scheduler about all of the spelling errors that I made. I must have apologized for about three paragraphs and vowed that it would never happen again. I think she got a real chuckle when I told her what happened. 


I really need to learn more about computers. It's hell being a dinosaur.

You could try using the computers at the library if time permits.Then you don't have to know anything about the computers--notmuch anyway.

Ha! Thanks for sharing David! Indeed, like Michelle said - using library computers, or those at an internet cafe, is a good way to start. I would suggest taking the time to "play around" on that notebook you bought - explore the options, functionalities, programs...it helps in the long run :)

I'm sorry this happened to you, just change the settings so that you don't get your words changed

Getting techno savvy before mystery shopping is very helpful. So much relies on technology anymore. Glad that everyone is helping each other in this post. Even I learned something. Thank you
