February 13, 7pm General Meeting: "Windows 11 Overview". Presenter, Jim Prince, followed by the raffle drawing for a customized Dell OptiPlex 5060 desktop computer.   Since end-of-support for Windows 10 is still over two years away (October 14, 2025), it's a safe bet that many are still using Windows 10.   Here's another overview of what changes to expect in Windows 11.   Any new computer that you acquire these days needs to be capable of fully supporting Windows 11, and should come with Windows 11 rather than Windows 10.   This will be an in-person meeting (with Zoom simulcast) in Room 1001 in the lower level of Highland Crossings Center, 1801 Forest Hills Blvd., Bella Vista, AR.  Links to Google Maps for the location of HCC and for directions inside HCC are located at the bottom of this web page. 

For those who are uncomfortable with an in-person meeting because either they or others in their household are still in high risk categories for COVID-19, the concurrent Zoom broadcast of the February 13 General Meeting can be joined 5 to 10 minutes before the meeting by clicking this Zoom link, or manually specify Meeting ID: 849 2704 4685 and Passcode: z6Nbw8 . 

Although reported COVID-19 cases in Arkansas and in Benton Country appears to have stabilized, there is still a significant presence nationwide and in Arkansas.  In-person attendees should stay alert for any changes in guidelines. 

Visitors and Guests are welcome.  For an explanation of using Zoom for BVCC meetings, see the article in the May Bits & Bytes newsletter.  The Zoom application can be installed on PCs, Macs, and mobile devices for free.
