Clueless on Computers

Instructor, Brian Oswald
You are never too old to learn – especially if you are new to computers. Start at the beginning and learn the basics of using your computer. Cover everything from using the mouse to shutting off your computer! If you are wondering if this class might be too difficult for you, then this class is actually meant for you. (Windows Tips and Tricks or Files, Folders, and Finding Things may be a good follow up to this class.)

This class is intended for you if you have a very basic understanding of Windows, but wish to know more. Suggested prerequisite: Clueless on Computers or a very basic understanding of Windows.
