What is a B83 file?
A B83 file is an update file used to update a Texas Instruments TI-83 Premium CE graphing calculator. It contains updates for a calculator's operating system and applications. B83 files are installed using Texas Instruments TI Connect CE, a desktop app used to manage the TI-84 Plus family of graphing calculators.
The TI-84 Plus family of graphing calculators are tools that middle school, high school and college students use to plot functions, analyze numerical data, solve complex equations, and perform other mathematical operations. The TI-83 Premium CE graphing calculator, which is a TI-84 Plus family calculator that was released only in France, is notable for having a screen that displays colors, which helps users visualize data.
TI-84 Plus calculators use a unique operating system (OS) and applications. To update a TI-83 Premium CE calculator's OS and applications, a user must download the most recent B83 update file from Texas Instruments' website and install that file on their calculator. B83 files are installed on calculators using TI Connect CE, a desktop app that allows users to manage and update their calculators from their PCs.
NOTE: Before using a B83 file to update your calculator, you should use TI Connect CE to create a copy of any important files your calculator contains. Updating your calculator may overwrite your files.
How to open a B83 file
To install the updates a B83 file contains on your TI-83 Premium CE calculator, you must:
- Open TI Connect CE.
- Connect your calculator to your computer (and make sure it appears in TI Connect CE).
- Drag your B83 file to TI Connect CE's Calculator Explorer.
TI Connect CE will then begin updating your calculator's OS and applications. Your calculator may reboot during the update process.
