Do you or someone you know understand little to nothing about how to use a computer? Ever wonder what computer terms like virus, mouse, keyboard and antivirus mean? What about all of this downloading and the internet? If you are not sure about those terms or think you may want to know more, this is for you!
You hear people talking about all of these weird terms like the Windows Desktop, the start menu and the dreaded virus! You will learn what all of that means in simple, easy to understand terms and actual demonstrations.
We will learn the basics of using a computer bit by bit. Each section will be a different computer topic and there will be several lessons in each section. We will learn about using your computer, computer parts such as the mouse, monitor, keyboard, USB and Ethernet as well as topics such as computer security, the internet, problems and troubleshooting as well as a few more advanced topics!

Turn a Windows 10 Computer Off (as well as restart)
What is it and what will we learn in Section 5: Control Panel?
Note that the control panel is still available in Windows 10; however, as Windows 10 matures they are moving toward using the Settings feature instead. I have a plan to implement a section related to this area in the near future.
If you cannot find the control panel in Windows 10 try this: click the Start button (bottom left). As soon as the Start menu appears start typing Control Panel. It should appear in the search results for you to click on. It is important that after clicking the Start button you do not do anything else and immediately start to type Control Panel. If you accidentally make a mistake, click on your desktop and try again, you may need to close any programs that may have been accidentally opened by clicking the red X at the top right of the program.
