What does it mean to configure?

Q:
What does it mean to “configure”?

A:
That’s one of those computer words that you see tossed about. It can refer to the set-up of your computer hardware: memory and devices. It can be your combination of software: operating system, utilities, and applications. It can also mean the adjustment of your software: options or preferences.

Many computer problems are caused by poor configuration and can often be solved with a little bit of adjustment. As I mentioned last month, always check system requirements for software and the “ReadMe” file to make sure programs are configured right for your system.

I hope that now you configure out what people are talking about when they say this 😉
