2-Hour Class with Computer Corner’s Lead Instructor


Overview

Literacy in the 21st century is not just about being able to read and write fluently. Many individuals argue computer literacy is equivalently vital as our lives become more dependent on using computers to perform daily tasks. Knowing how to use computers and software allows you to accomplish tasks in a more organized, efficient, and timely manner.

Computer technology is advancing and it is easy to fall behind. Training will provide you with a solid foundation that will serve you for years to come. At Computer Corner, our goal is to equip you with the computer skills necessary to succeed.

Windows 10 is the latest and most powerful operating system Microsoft has ever released. But it is also the most complex. Windows 10 combines features from its two previous versions, making the operating system user friendly across multiple devices (PCs, laptops, and tablets).

While the user interface is familiar to those of you have used Windows 7 or Windows 8, you need to learn to customize your experience to get the maximum performance from the new features. New features of Windows 10 include voice assistant Cortana, Edge Browser, the ability to work in multiple desktops, and more.

Become A Pro At Windows 10 is a two-hour hands-on, instructor led, classroom based course held in our state-of-the art computer lab. The course is designed as a transition for people who have or will be switching from the Windows 7 operating system to the Windows 10 operating system in a personal and/or professional environment.

Prerequisites
You should be proficient in the general use of a computer, keyboard, and mouse. You should have basic knowledge of Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating system.
