The Computers Are Easy User Group, or CAEUG, is dedicated to the use and understanding of computers and related subjects. We have an open forum where all levels of computer users can meet to exchange information, ideas and share knowledge about computers. We encourage questions at our meetings and work together to solve problems members are having. We share new ideas on how to improve our computing skills and put on monthly programs covering all areas of computing subjects, either with a guest speaker or one of our own members speaking.

We meet once a month at the Glenside Public Library, 25 East Fullerton in Glendale Heights, Illinois, at 9:30 a.m.. If you would like more information, drop our membership folks an e-mail.

The library is open.

There will be a hybrid meeting at the library. We will also Zoom video conferencing software. The start time at the library is 9:30 AM on Saturday June 22nd. Masks are encouraged.

Our June 22nd, 2024 We will have various short video presentations about Windows and Identity Protection procedures.

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. If you wish to attend via ZOOM, PLEASE SEND AN E-MAIL TO caeug (at) caeug (dot) net WITH SUBJECT LINE "Various" BY 06/20/24 AT 5 PM CT TO RECEIVE AN INVITATION LINK. If you wish to attend in person, the Board Room is to the right just inside the front door.


SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: PC, MAC, TABLET, or SMART PHONE to hear and see presentation. OPTIONAL: Microphone to ask questions. Web camera to be seen.

For the purposes of this meeting, Zoom will be used via your web browser. To get the full benefit of the meeting, the device (desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone) which will be used to connect to the meeting should have a microphone, camera, and speakers to take full advantage of the ZOOM product. ZOOM will work properly without; a camera (we will not be able to see you, but you will see the meeting), a microphone (we will not be able to hear you, but you will hear the meeting), speakers (you will not be able to hear the meeting but can still see it). A telephone may also be used, audio only, the number will be provided in the e-mail. You do not need to have ZOOM software on your device nor do you have to have a ZOOM account; simply click on the provided link in the e-mail on late Thursday or early Friday. A few messages may go by, run the ZOOM launcher, and you will be presented (be patient) with a dialog box displaying your camera's picture. Click the appropriate "Join" button and you will be placed in the "Waiting Room" prior to being admitted to the meeting.

If this will be your first time using ZOOM, has many tutorials for first time users. One I found particularly useful is at:

If you have questions regarding equipment, procedures, or want to practice, please send an email to caeug (at); be sure to include your phone number. Members of the Board are available to call you on the telephone to support your use of ZOOM.
