SLO Bytes PC Users Group

This is the place to share expertise, look for help, find answers, keep up with the rapid changing personal computing hardware and software fields and of course have fun!

SLO Bytes, a non-profit PC Users Group, is dedicated to the education of its members in the use of personal computers, digital devices and computer hardware/software.

HOW DO WE DO THAT? We typically begin each monthly meeting with a Windows Question and Answer session led by Alan Raul.
This is followed by a General Meeting dealing with subjects as Microsoft operating systems (currently Windows 10), Word, Excel, Linux, and featuring guest speakers. typically local knowledgeable people willing to share their computer expertise with others.
We also have Special Interest Groups (See below) held on various dates throughout the month.
