Tech Tips from the Hive

Have you ever received a new work computer, bought a new computer for home, or had a hard drive fail and wondered how you would migrate all of your browser settings (Chrome, Firefox) to the new computer?  Both Google Chrome Sync and Firefox Sync allow you to bring your bookmarks, saved passwords and other browser settings to any computer you use.  Both features require you to sign in to the application, but once signed in you can then enable sync to any device you use.  We’ve created Tutorials to help you with the process.  Click here for the Firefox Sync Tutorial, or click here for the Google Sync Tutorial.

Need to access your office computer and work files from home?  Install the UK Cisco VPN client and use Remote Desktop to access your work whenever you’d like without coming in to the office.  The Hive has created tutorials to walk you through the process of downloading and installing the VPN client, and accessing your work machine using Remote Desktop.  Have a look at these tutorials to get started:
