Three best tech ‘how-to’ websites

We live in a wonderful world of technology. But sadly, TVs go on the fritz, computers crack up, codes break and phones don’t behave – so learn how to fix disobedient technology with the help of these top tech tips sites.

HowToGeek is an online magazine that offers fascinating articles about all things technology. It also provides simple-to-follow tutorials on topics that range from ‘how do I turn on my TV’ to ‘how do I program my TV to take over the world’. Just kidding, but you get my drift.

The information is presented in a palatable, straight-forward format, perfect for tech amateurs but also interesting enough for hard-core tech heads.

Tech-recipes is a website authored by a massive community of users who provide step-by-step guides for a diverse range of tech issues. You can learn anything on Tech-recipes, from formatting spreadsheets in Google Sheets, to making the most of your smartphone camera. There are also many simple tutorials that show you how to build your own website or blog. Tech-recipes pretty much covers all things Android, Apple, Windows and internet.

HowStuffWorks has been enlightening the world since 1998, with its unbiased, reliable and succinct explanations of, you guessed it, how stuff works! HowStuffWorks provides tech tutorials and how-tos and also covers a broad range of really interesting subjects, from animals to adventure, entertainment and culture to cars, and money to lifestyle – just to name a few. This is by far one of the most informative sites on the internet.

Oh, and although we don’t market ourselves as tech experts, we do believe that our own tech tutorials are incredibly insightful and helpful. We also love the challenge of answering your specific questions. So, if you have any tech-related queries, send them in to us and we’ll do our very best to answer.
