Computer Basics using Windows 7 and IE 8

Duration: 1 Day, 2 Modules
Module Price: $130

This hands-on course teaches the basics of using a computer. Students will learn how to start the computer, log in, and use the Start menu to start applications. Using some of Windows 7’s built-in applications, they will learn to control the mouse, using it to draw as well as using it to move, resize, and close multiple windows. 

Students will use the keyboard to create typewritten documents, saving their completed work as files in folders on discs, then learn how to move those files/folders between computers.  Copy music from a CD, delete files you don’t need any more (and bring a file back that you deleted by mistake).  Personalize the look of your computer screen, and see how to shut down the computer at the end of your day.

Who Should Attend: This course is designed for any worker, business professional, or private individual who needs to learn basic steps to get started using a computer with the Windows 7 operating system.
