Windows and File Management:     March 25, 2015  (8:30 AM – 4:30 PM)

Why take an “intro” course?  Many of us successfully taught ourselves the basics of operating a computer.  This is an admirable accomplishment, but it usually means that there are functions, techniques, and shortcuts that we never discovered.  Make time to formally learn Windows now, and you will get a quick payoff in improved efficiency and new skills.  And if you are a novice computer user, this is a great opportunity to start with core knowledge and skills that will also help you explore other software programs.

Intro to Windows and File Management is designed for anyone who wishes to enhance their understanding of computer basics and use key board short cuts to do various tasks, or operate a computer effectively.  Though many novice users benefit from the course, it is not uncommon for someone with a little more experience to benefit from Windows shortcuts (old and new), better multi-tasking techniques, and also get a refresher on forgotten techniques.

Finally, while it is important to understand the Windows environment and work proficiently, it is equally important (if not more), to understand file and folder management, Network and Personal drives, and also learn some terminology associated with Windows and File management.
