Under the Computer Hood Users Group (UCHUG) is a non profit Users Group.  UCHUG membership consists of first time computer users through Computer Consultants.  This diverse audience allows users of all experience levels to feel comfortable with exchanging ideas and obtaining help for problem resolution.

Upcoming Meetings


September 3rd - Slate of officers for the election in October and main topics of Easy Desktop, Android Tablet and eReader Comparison, Converting HDMI to DVI, Linux Q & A.  Easy Desktop replaces the Windows desktop with a menu system as opposed to the thumbnail picture Icon system.  Come hear how you can eliminate desktop icon clutter, organize your programs and reduce your computer frustrations, especially with Win8.

Android-based tablets and eReaders may be similar in the basic operating system, but the eReader OS is often customized.  We will demonstrate some of the differences.  Would you like to display your camera, laptop, phone or tablet screen on a DVI monitor or projector, but only have an HDMI output? We will discuss and demonstrate how to convert HDMI to DVI.  Bring your Linux questions for a short Q & A session.


October 1st - Election of Officers and main topic TBD.
