Intro to Computers – Beginners Start Here

This Microsoft Windows course teaches the functions of the keys and the mouse.  These keys are used extensively in computer work, but what they do is not fully understood by novice users.  So we drill the functions of these keys and the mouse.  With minimal practice, students will be prepared to participate in our next course.

Intro to Computers I – Everyday Skills
Monday, May 21, 10 am – 5 pm

This course will make YOU the boss of your Windows computer.  Set it up to YOUR requirements!  Adjust your mouse speed.  Resize windows and move them around.  Scroll up and down.  Open a program, do the work, then save it. Take a snapshot of your screen, a picture from the internet, or some writing you don’t want to retype; then magically insert it into a document or an e-mail you can send to someone.  Learn the differences between:  A browser and a search engine, an operating system and an application, a delete key and a backspace key, a left-click and a right-click and more.  Computer parts and e-mail basics are also covered.  Lessons are based on Windows 7 and Office 2010, but the instructor presents how-tos for working in older and newer systems.  You may bring your laptop to see how class lessons apply to your machine. Instructor: Chris Yochum
