Have you got your set­tings right?

Oper­ating sys­tems, pro­grams, apps and social media – they all offer myr­iads of set­ting options which seem to increase with just about every update. Don’t get lost in the set­tings jungle.

No matter whether Win­dows 10, Google Chrome, Face­book or Insta­gram is involved: As far as finding the “right” set­tings is con­cerned, it is easy to get com­pletely lost in the immense range of options. Small wonder, since every update comes with addi­tional options. Users how­ever are often quite unaware of any new fea­tures, since most pro­grams and web­sites auto­mat­i­cally make a preset choice for them.

If you open an option menu for your­self, you are often con­fronted by an over­whelming choice of set­ting options. And prob­ably find that those preset default values are not exactly the optimum ones. It is often highly advis­able to make adjust­ments, mainly for secu­rity and data pro­tec­tion reasons.

So that you don’t get com­pletely lost and can no longer see the forest for all those trees in this set­tings jungle, our instruc­tions pro­vide you with spe­cific rec­om­men­da­tions for topics such as Win­dows and browsers plus social media like Face­book, Twitter, Insta­gram and LinkedIn.
