>#striped-custom-666aea4cee7f3.process-box:hover .front { background-color: #d7c151; -webkit-box-shadow:0 0 0 15px rgba(215,193,81,0.5); -moz-box-shadow:0 0 0 15px rgba(215,193,81,0.5); box-shadow:0 0 0 15px rgba(215,193,81,0.5); } #striped-custom-666aea4cee7f3.process-box:hover .symbol-container { -webkit-box-shadow:0 0 0 2px #d7c151; -moz-box-shadow:0 0 0 2px #d7c151; box-shadow:0 0 0 2px #d7c151; }

Countdown Timer

The Desktop screen will appear and in the bottom right hand corner the user will be able to see a countdown timer showing how much time they have left (initially 2 hours maximum).

>#striped-custom-666aea4cee8f3.process-box:hover .front { background-color: #d7c151; -webkit-box-shadow:0 0 0 15px rgba(215,193,81,0.5); -moz-box-shadow:0 0 0 15px rgba(215,193,81,0.5); box-shadow:0 0 0 15px rgba(215,193,81,0.5); } #striped-custom-666aea4cee8f3.process-box:hover .symbol-container { -webkit-box-shadow:0 0 0 2px #d7c151; -moz-box-shadow:0 0 0 2px #d7c151; box-shadow:0 0 0 2px #d7c151; }

Hide Timer

The user can right click on the countdown to hide it , but it will automatically re-appear approx 10 mins before the session is due to end as a reminder.

The first hour of use is free of charge, time after that is charged at the current rate – shown on sheet beside the PC.

When the countdown timer gets to zero the session will be terminated and the PC will be automatically re-started.

If you need more time you must ask one of the volunteers to arrange it (they need to phone Harrogate library) a minimum of 15 minutes before your session is due to end.

Before the session ends be sure to save any data that you are working on to your own media, such as:

  • USB Memory Stick
  • Recordable CD
  • Microsoft SkyDrive Storage
  • Google Drive Storage

As all your private data will be erased from the PC when it re-starts.

If the data is important we would advise doing this at regular intervals during your session to avoid its loss in case of power failure, PC failure etc.

Customer Logoff Procedure

The user can logoff and finish their session (having saved any files they require) by either right clicking on the countdown timer and selecting the ‘End session’ option or clicking on the Windows Icon at the bottom left of the desktop and selecting ‘Log off’ option.

Printing Procedure

Users can select Black and White or Colour Printer. Printout is picked up at the volunteers desk.

Scanning Software

The scanning software is now easier to use.
