About GrantBarker.com


This is a hobby site with basic information about Windows and PCs. You can also find custom ROM lists for the Galaxy Note range of smartphones.

A custom ROM for a smartphone is a customized version of the smartphone's operating system, which you can develop, make and share with other people - for them to install and use on their own same model smartphones.

The Computer, Windows, and App articles are written for Windows users, and especially beginners.

Some examples:

  • Security: Windows 8 and 10 come with Windows Defender. However, if you'd like to try a different security app for Windows, see the Free Security Apps page.
  • Second Opinion Anti-Malware: For an extra layer of protection against malware, check out the Second Opinion Anti-Malware Apps page.
  • Performance: If your Windows device is running slowly or strangely, try the tips on the Windows 10 Maintenance page or Computer Maintenance page.
  • Keyboard Shortcuts: You can learn more about Windows, and quicker ways to get things done, with the Keyboard Shortcuts page.
  • Windows 10 free upgrade: Don't forget that Microsoft's free Windows 10 upgrade offer is still available for those who are using or foresee themselves using 'assistive technologies'.

Any apps on this site are recommended from their reputation and user experience.

I haven't forgotten that most people have a computer, love their own setups and can do their own thing.

The search function is being developed, and I keep an eye on what people are interested in.

Forgive the old-school icons. Although stock photos are more modern - they're not my cup of tea.
