You and a college friend have signed on as a franchise for JUNKit, a company that purchases unwanted items and disposes of or recycles them. A recent pickup included a desktop computer that appeared to be reusable. Because you had a few spare parts and some hardware expertise, you rebuilt the computer and installed Windows 8. Now you will check the system to verify that it is workable and configured correctly. Pretend your lab computer (or your home computer) is the computer you rebuilt. a. Open WordPad and, in a new document, type as directed when you complete the following items. b. Open the Action Center. Are there any alerts? Make note of them and close the Action Center. In the WordPad document, type Step b: and list any alerts or indicate that there are none. Press Enter. c. Open Windows Defender and check to see when the last scan occurred. Click the WordPad icon on the taskbar, click in the document on the line following your response for step b, type Step c:, and then record when the last scan occurred. Press Enter. Close the Windows Defender window. d. Check the firewall status. Is the firewall on? Close the System and Security window. If necessary, click in the WordPad document on the line following your response for step c. Type Step d: and record whether the firewall is on or off. (Note that the firewall may not be on for the lab computer because the campus lab is likely to be behind another campus-wide firewall. Your computer at home is more likely to have the firewall turned on.) Press Enter. e. Check Windows Update. When did the last update occur? Click the WordPad icon on the taskbar. If necessary, click in the WordPad document on the line following your response for step d. Type Step e: and record the date of the last update. Press Enter. Close the Windows Update window. f. Check for available desktop backgrounds. Identify one that you plan to use and make a note of it, but click Cancel without selecting it. Close any open windows other than WordPad. If necessary, click in the WordPad document on the line following your response for step e. Type Step f: and list the name of the background that you would have selected in the WordPad document. Press Enter. g. Save the file as win01m1junk_LastFirst, replacing LastFirst with your own last name and first name. Leave WordPad open. h. Open Help and Support. Find information on backup options for Windows 8. Going a little further, research backup strategies for home computers on the Web. Click the WordPad icon on the taskbar, type Step g:, and then summarize your findings in the WordPad document. Press Enter. Save the file. i. Close the Windows Help and Support window. Save the WordPad document on the drive where you normally save files as win01m1junk_LastFirst. Close WordPad. Submit the file to your instructor.
