Document your computer system

Document your computer system

It is very important to document your computer system. Even if you are not computer literate. If you hire someone to fix your system or add a device document the user id and password to access the device, changes in a password or anything related to your computer system. This can be done in a notebook. You can have the tech document the changes they made for you. Document all passwords, user ids, changes in the network, model numbers, printers etc.. The tech who made the changes may not be available or not remember what the the password is. Leaving you with a device (router, wireless or computer data) you do not have access to. This is critically important  if you have a server. The administrator user id and password are an important key to your network. This account has the highest authority in your computer system. Also with documentation it is easier for a tech to troubleshoot or understand why certain modifications were done. In the end it is your computer system.
