Introduction to Windows 8

Windows 8 classesWindows 8 is a personal computer operating system developed by Microsoft. Windows 8 introduced major changes to the operating system’s platform and user interface including the new Start screen (which displays programs and dynamically updated content on a grid of tiles), integration with online services (including the ability to sync apps and settings between devices), and the Windows Store.

This course will help you to define what a PC is, and familiarize you with the Windows 8 user interface and its basic capabilities.
