Process to ensure a 'Kiosk' Windows 10 computer with touch screen is setup for MiClub Kiosk functions


Please follow the below steps prior to making contact with MiClub Staff, this will take a few hours to complete.  Ensure your club's IT contractor/purchaser doesn't bring the new computer in a box un-opened as this is their job to do. The IT contractor will know most of the steps outlined below.  


You will get much joy out of turning on the PC and either printing or scanning immediately. 


If MiClub has supplied the PC all you need to do is Plug and Play after you have connected it to your internet


Preparation

  • Find a big desk with plenty of room to spread out
  • Open the box and take off all packaging and place neatly back in the box.
  • Keep the box for a few months just in case something goes wrong and the computer needs to be sent back to get fixed/replaced


Setup

  • Setup the PC on the desk
  • Plug in Keyboard and mouse
  • Plug in the Internet Cable if using a wired connection
  • Plug in the Power and turn on


Windows Setup

  • Go through the Windows opening installation screens
  • It will ask if using a Wifi connection so have that username and password around
  • Ensure you Skip setup of password, you don't want to keep having to type in the password when computer restarts

The PC will ideally be used just as a kiosk so no one can access the PC settings unless of course you leave the keyboard and mouse connected.  If members are not used to a touch screen they will soon get used to it as less can go wrong.  And if they need to open a new web page to check their Golf Link history lend them your phone or show them how easy to do on their own.

Also the keyboard is just a dust gatherer and the mouse tends to end up on the floor most of the time


Screen should now be at the Desktop.  This may take a while so best to get started in the morning
