When speaking to people who know a lot about computers, they can often be helpful, but often they’ll talk to you based on the assumption that everyone knows Windows’ basics! Unfortunately, that not necessarily true. Microsoft Windows courses can help you learn the basic commands and elements of Microsoft Windows. Depending on your version of Windows (for instance Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7) training can be arranged to meet your needs, however, given they all share common elements, the knowledge you learn in one Windows course can be transferred to other Windows versions.
Taking a course to bring your computer knowledge up to modern times will also help you take advantage of the internet (eg Facebook or video calls) to keep in touch with your family, manage digital photos plus lots more.
There’s never been a better time to take some training in Windows as new developments are always being made to remove the hassle from computers and make them more user-friendly.
More about Microsoft Windows
Microsoft Windows is a series of operating systems that use graphical user interfaces. Originally created as an add-on to MS-DOS, it has subsequently overtaken Mac OS in popularity and holds over 90% of the market share for operating systems.
Microsoft recently launched Windows 7, however, previous versions that are still found on many machines include Windows XP and Windows Vista.
With the development of Windows, Microsoft has taken two parallel routes. One route has been for the home user and the other has been for the professional IT user. The home versions have usually had greater multimedia support and less network and security functionality. Professional versions of Windows have usually had inferior multimedia support, but better networking and security.
An introductory course in Microsoft Windows can be seen as a general course in learning how to operate a computer, while advanced Windows courses are more appropriate for system administrators.
Beginner users might also find the European Computer Driving Licence courses interesting as these give a qualification showing your ability in front of a computer. Advanced Windows users might also find Microsoft Windows System Administrator courses.
