Introduction to Windows

Computer 101 ClassBy using a personal computer, you can accomplish many tasks that might be more difficult and time-consuming to accomplish on your own. Some of those tasks might include writing a letter, analyzing numeric information, or maintaining an updated list of client information.

However, before you use a personal computer, you need to understand what it is and how it works. In this course, that’s what you will do.  If you have recently purchased a computer or are a beginner computer user looking to become more confident, you will leave this class feeling more comfortable with your computer!
