This seminar is for both beginning and intermediate level students. If you have specific questions that you'd like to have answered, put them in the comments section of the registration form, or bring them to class.
Computers have a way of doing strange things and have strange ways of telling you. Do you understand how your Computer talks to you? Do you always know how to answer it? If your answers are not "yes" to both questions, then this seminar is for you. We will first cover basic things you need to know about your Microsoft Windows computer and attempt to eliminate your frustrations. For example, do you need all those icons on your desktop? What's the difference between left-click, right-click, single-click, and double-click on your mouse and when is it best for you to use which? How can you find files, documents, and photos on your computer when you are in the middle of your work? What is Windows Explorer, and how can you optimize your use of it? How can you navigate around in your computer when you need to find things?
If you know all that, then we have more. We have Windows tips and tricks and hints up our sleeves. Do you know where to look on your display for the things you want to do? Does email cause you problems? What do many of our instructors think you need to know? By the time you're done, you and your computer will be the best of friends.
Again, please type some questions in the comments section of the registration form so the instuctor may customize the seminar. Or, just bring them to class. This is a great opportunity to get answers to those nagging questions.
