Introduction to Windows 7

If you're new to computers, or just new to Microsoft Windows 7, this course will get you up to speed fast. In just six weeks, you'll make the transition from helpless beginner to happy PC user. 

We'll start with the absolute basics: the computer terms and skills everyone else assumes you already know. (And soon, you will know them!) Then you'll explore some fun Windows 7 features that let you personalize your screen so it suits your style and your specific needs. You'll also learn about some handy gadgets you can put on your computer desktop for work or play. 

Next, you'll find out how to type and edit text so you can easily create emails or documents. You'll also learn how to save and organize your work so it's always a snap to find your files. In addition, you'll discover how to save and organize photos, fix the annoying "red eye" caused by flash cameras, and use basic photo editing techniques like cropping. 

After that, you'll pick up some tips that will help you search the Web like an expert using the Internet Explorer web browser that comes with Windows 7. You'll also learn how to use flash drives, CDs, and DVDs, and how to protect your system against viruses and other threats.  

In each lesson, you'll find fun games and practical, hands-on activities to help you master your new skills. By the time you're done, you'll know the Windows 7 operating system from top to bottom—and you'll be using it like a pro!
