We will cover important topics and answer all your Surface Pro questions.


How to Clear Browsing History (Cache)
What is Cache, Cookies, and History and 
Why Should You Clear it...

Each time you access a file through your web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc), the browser caches (i.e., stores) it so it doesn't have to keep retrieving the same files or images from the remote web site each time you click Back or Forward. You should periodically clear the cache to allow your browser to function more efficiently.

A cookie is a file created by a web browser, at the request of a web site, that is stored on a computer. These files typically store user-specific information such as selections in a form, shopping cart contents, or authentication data. Browsers will normally clear cookies that reach a certain age, but clearing them manually may solve problems with web sites or your browser.

A browser's history is a log of sites that you visit. When you press a browser's Back button, you are moving back one entry in the history log. Browsers will normally clear history at regular intervals, but you may want to clear it manually for privacy reasons.




Dates for Surface Pro Return

Students need to return their Surface Pro WITH charger and Surface Pens  to the Motto Desk in Library by Wednesday June 7th (if you have an exam Thursday morning June 8th, you can return your device after your exam.)  

Students need to make sure that OneNote and all files are saved in Google Drive. Each device will get wiped and a new image installed for the 2017-18 school year.

Returning students will be able to pick up their device in early July.  
Additional details will be available soon.  


Student Reminder

Please do not carry your Surface Pro in a backpack! Even with a protective case, the weight of the backpack on the screen is causing the them to crack!

Save the Surface, Carry it Like a Pro!
