Tech Tip #85: Browser Problem? Switch Browsers

Posted by on May 12, 2014

As a working technology teacher, I get hundreds of questions from parents about their home computers, how to do stuff, how to solve problems. Each week, I’ll share one of those with you. They’re always brief and always focused. Enjoy!

Q:My browser has been working fine, but lately, it doesn’t bring up some of the stuff right. What do I do?

A: The quick answer is, switch browsers.

Sometimes you load programs/system or operating files on your computer that conflict with your current browser. Everything that had been working fine suddenly doesn’t. Try the search in Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. Often, it’ll work fine with that one switch.
