Advice for staff on preparing for the upgrade to Windows 7/Office 2010

Information Services is undertaking the upgrading of the vast majority of staff PCs to Windows 7 and Office 2010 over the vacation period.


We have prepared a number of guides to help staff prepare for the upgrade and also some FAQs on the obvious changes / new features in Windows 7 and Office 2010.


Check out our guides:

  • Online training materials including how to prepare for your Windows 7 upgrade, how to map a network drive in Win 7 and how to add a network printer
  • Windows 7 upgrade FAQs including items such as how to search google using ie9, how to use  local admin account under Win 7 and others

  1. How will I know when this is due to happen? 2 hours at certain times without access to office might be quite inconvenient, so will I be told individually when the changes will happen to my pc?

  2. Please can I have a list emailed to me (involving no clicking on links) telling me what I need to do. I have already clicked on 2 links and waited -without success- for a video to appear. I do not have time for this. I really don’t have time for this (as well as attending training sessions for succeed and for the new phone system etc)

  3. Di, our desktop support team manager has told me that colleagues will be contacted directly by their designated IT Specialist to arrange an appointment.
