Curriculum

Section 1: Course Introduction
01:37

This lecture provides a brief summary of the topics covered throughout the course and offers suggestions for further reading and learning materials.

Section 2: Windows Basics
01:57

Windows is a family of operating systems developed by Microsoft Corporation. Windows provides a graphical user interface (GUI), virtual memory management, multitasking, and support for many peripheral devices. Learn this and more during this lecture.

01:54
Windows 10 allows you to use a “Microsoft” user account versus a “Local” user account. To enable some features in Windows 10, such as Cortana, you must use a Microsoft User Account. If you already have an old Hotmail e-mail address, an XBOX Live e-mail, a Windows phone, or a Windows Live e-mail, you can use those e-mail addresses as your Microsoft Account e-mail address. Learn this and more during this lecture.
02:10

One way to navigate through the Windows environment is by using your mouse. A mouse is a device that you control with your hand. You roll it around on a pad. This allows you to move the mouse pointer, usually an “arrow” icon, on your screen to select files and folders. There are many variations of the mouse, but they are all designed to perform the same basic functions. Learn this and more during this lecture.

02:01
In Windows 10, many of the actions for which you would previously use a mouse can also be performed by using gestures on a touch screen for computing devices that support this behavior. Learn this and more during this lecture.
02:23

In Windows 10, the Desktop is only available for laptops, desktops, and larger tablets. It is not available for very small tablets or Windows Phones. For devices that have a keyboard and no touchscreen, Windows 10 will display the Desktop environment by default. Devices that have a touch screen with no keyboard connected will default to “Tablet Mode,” instead. Learn this and more during this lecture.

00:53

The Start button in Windows 10 is a small button that displays the Windows logo and is always displayed at the left end of the Taskbar. You can click the Start button to display the Start menu or the Start screen within Windows 10. Learn this and more during this lecture.

03:43

The Start menu has been re-introduced in Windows 10. The new Windows 10 Start menu is a hybrid of the Start menu found in Windows 7 or earlier and the Start screen from Windows 8. If viewing the Desktop in Windows 10, you can view the Start menu by clicking the “Start” button, which has the Windows logo on it, in the lower-left corner of the screen in the Windows Taskbar. Alternately, you can press the Windows key on your keyboard to display the Start menu at any time. Learn this and more during this lecture.

03:54

You can customize the appearance of the Start menu in many ways. You can control the placement and grouping of the live tiles shown at the right side of the Start menu, as well as name the tile groupings you create. You can also control the appearance of many of the individual live tiles themselves within the Start menu. In this lecture, you will learn how to customize the Start menu in Windows 10. Learn this and more during this lecture.

03:35

The Start screen appears in Windows 10 if using a tablet or if you change the default “Start” settings to enable its display. If viewing the Desktop in Windows 10, you can view the Start screen by clicking the “Start” button, which has the Windows logo on it, in the lower-left corner of the screen in the Windows Taskbar. Alternately, you can press the Windows key on your keyboard to display the Start screen at any time. Learn this and more during this lecture.

Learn this and more during this lecture.

01:41
Starting in Windows 10, you now have the option of choosing to display either the Start menu within the Desktop or the Start screen over the Desktop. Windows 10 automatically picks either the Start menu or the Start screen for your device, based on the type of device it is. However, you can change this setting to manually choose either the Start menu or Start screen, if desired. Learn this and more during this lecture.
02:50

In Windows 10, devices that have a touch screen with no keyboard attached will default to using the tablet mode. However, note that users of desktops, laptops, and larger tablets can also manually switch to the tablet mode, even if their device defaults to the Windows 10 Desktop. Users of devices such as the Microsoft Surface Pro, which can switch between tablet and laptop modes, will notice that the Continuum feature of Windows 10 will automatically adjust their device between the tablet and laptop modes, as needed. Learn this and more during this lecture.

02:10

This lecture discusses using tablet mode in Windows 10. When Windows 10 is in tablet mode, many changes to Windows 10 automatically occur. Many of these changes impact the way you use Windows 10, while other changes affect the user interface and how applications behave. Learn this and more during this lecture.

03:28

You can use the “Search the web and Windows” search box within the Taskbar of the Desktop to search for content within the web and within Windows. To search in Windows 10, click into the “Search the web and Windows” box within the Taskbar of the Desktop to display a “Search” pane above the box. Learn this and more during this lecture.

You can click the bottom button in the Nav pane at the left side of the “Search” pane to “Try Cortana” for searches. Information about the tasks that Cortana can provide is shown in the “Search” pane. Learn this and more during this lecture.
03:46

Windows 10 introduces the new “universal app” window. This window is like a modified version of the “modern” app windows introduced in Windows 8, combined with the title bars from the older “desktop-style” windows. This lecture will discuss the new universal app windows and the navigation features that you will often encounter within them. Learn this and more during this lecture.

03:17

While the ability to “snap” an app window to the side of the screen was introduced in earlier versions of Windows, you will find that snapping apps to the side of the screen is even easier in Windows 10. In addition to new keyboard shortcuts for app snapping, you can now snap windows on top of one another, vertically, or even snap them into the corners of a window, if desired, and if your screen is large enough. Learn this and more during this lecture.

04:10

The window is one of the basic elements of the Windows operating system. You perform most activities in different windows within the application. Windows that appear within the Desktop will most often share a similar structure and layout. In this lecture, we will examine how to resize windows commonly found within a Desktop. Learn this and more during this lecture.

00:45
In longer web pages or documents that you have opened, you will need to use the available scroll bars within the window to scroll through the information. Scroll bars will appear at the right and bottom sides of a window if all of the window's contents cannot be displayed at once. Learn this and more during this lecture.
01:25

When you need to turn off your computer, it is very important to do so properly. Do not simply unplug the computer or interrupt its power source! Doing so could possibly corrupt the information in your computer! Learn this and more during this lecture.

03:35

With Windows 10, you can download apps for your computing devices from the Windows Store. Note that you must be signed into your computer using a Microsoft Account to download apps from the Windows Store. Learn this and more during this lecture.

04:07

Windows 10 gives you additional sign-in options if you do not wish to use a Microsoft account password to log in to your device. After you have initially signed-in to your device you can then create the other sign-in options you prefer and set Windows 10 to use them, instead. You can use a PIN number or a picture password to sign in to your Windows 10 device, instead, if you prefer. Learn this and more during this lecture.

02:20

After creating a PIN or picture password for login, you may want to change or remove your PIN or picture password. To do this, click the “Start” button, if necessary, to display the Start screen or Start menu. If using the Start screen, click the “Nav button” in the upper-left corner of the Navigation Bar to display the Navigation pane. Then, in either the Start screen or Start menu, click the “Settings” command to open the “Settings” window. Learn this and more during this lecture.

Section 3: File Explorer
03:40

File Explorer has been available in Windows for many, many years. However, Windows 10, has added a few new features to “File Explorer.” Note that in releases of Windows prior to Windows 8, File Explorer was referred to as “Windows Explorer.” It doesn't really matter what you call it, as long as you realize that Windows Explorer and File Explorer are basically the same program, with a few differences between versions and names within the different Windows operating systems. Learn this and more during this lecture.

03:18

You use File Explorer to navigate through the files and folders your device can access. Within the large pane at the right side of File Explorer, you will see the contents of the currently selected drive or folder. Within this pane at the right, you can double-click a drive or folder icon to open it. Windows will then display its contents in the pane at the right side, showing you any folders and files within that location. Learn this and more during this lecture.


00:49

Windows 10 lets you change the display of the files and folders shown in the right pane within the File Explorer window. This is just a matter of personal preference. Your options are to display folder items as “Extra large icons,” “Large icons,” “Medium icons,” “Small icons,” “List,” “Details,” “Tiles,” or “Content.” Learn this and more during this lecture.

02:19
Windows allows you to sort items within a folder, with the exception of the “Quick access” view. In Windows, you can sort the items that appear in the right pane by any file or folder attributes that are available, regardless of the view style selected. Learn this and more during this lecture.
03:05

In order to perform many file management activities within File Explorer, you must first learn how to select files. You can select a single file in File Explorer by clicking it once. It will then be highlighted. The highlight indicates that the file is selected. When a file is selected, it has the focus of the Windows application and any commands that you subsequently perform will be applied to the selected file only. Learn this and more during this lecture.

00:40

To open a file that is shown within the right pane of the File Explorer window, double-click the file. Alternately, you can right-click the file to display a pop-up command menu. You can then click the “Open” command within the pop-up menu to open the selected file. Learn this and more during this lecture.

00:27

Windows records the history of folders that you have opened. To reopen a frequently opened folder, you can use File Explorer in Windows 10. Learn this and more during this lecture.

00:55

After you begin to create and save files, you may want to create additional folders and subfolders to help you organize your saved materials. You can create a folder within almost any other folder you can access though File Explorer. Sometimes you may do this on shared network drives, assuming that you have the required network permission to do so. Learn this and more during this lecture.

01:06

You can rename files and folders you have created to reflect changes made to their contents or to correct typos made when originally naming the files or folders. However, you should only rename files that you have created. Learn this and more during this lecture.

04:39

Once you've decided to start organizing your files and folders, you will want to move or copy files and folders to a new location. There is a difference between moving and copying files and folders. When you move a file or folder, you cut the original item and then paste it into a different location on your computer. When you copy a file or folder, you make an exact copy of the selected file or folder and then paste the copy into a new location in your computer. When you move a file, it is often referred to as “cutting and pasting.” When you copy a file, it is referred to as “copying and pasting.” Learn this and more during this lecture.

02:59

Many computers have a CD or DVD drive that can create recordable CDs or DVDs so you can save content from your computer onto removable media for transfer. To burn a CD or DVD, you must first insert a blank, recordable CD or DVD into the corresponding drive in your computer. Learn this and more during this lecture.

01:40

Routinely deleting files you no longer need helps keep your files and folders organized and saves space on your computer. However, before you delete a file, be absolutely sure you no longer need it! Learn this and more during this lecture.

For users who are upgrading from Windows 8.1 or 8 and who choose to keep their old files, you will find your old favorites that used to be pinned under the “Favorites” folder within File Explorer are now shown within the “Quick access” view. Learn this and more during this lecture.

01:38
If you are signed in with a Microsoft account and have enabled OneDrive, you will see your OneDrive folders appear in the Navigation pane at the left side of the File Explorer window in Windows 10.

Instructor Biography

TeachUcomp, Inc., Quality Software Training

Founded in 2001, TeachUcomp, Inc. began as a licensed software training center in Holt, Michigan - providing instructor-led, classroom-style instruction in over 85 different classes, including Microsoft Office, QuickBooks, Peachtree and web design, teaching staff at organizations such as the American Red Cross, Public School Systems and the Small Business Association.

At TeachUcomp, Inc., we realize that small business software can be confusing, to say the least. However, finding quality training can be a challenge. TeachUcomp, Inc. has changed all that. As the industry leader in training small business software, TeachUcomp, Inc. has revolutionized computer training and will teach you the skills to become a powerful and proficient user.

In 2002, responding to the demand for high-quality training materials that provide more flexibility than classroom training, TeachUcomp, Inc. launched our first product - Mastering QuickBooks Made Easy. The enormous success of our first tutorial led to an ever-expanding product line. TeachUcomp, Inc. now proudly serves customers in over 80 different countries world-wide including individuals, small businesses, non-profits and many others. Clients include the Transportation Security Administration, NASA, Smithsonian Institution, University of Michigan, Merrill Lynch, Sprint, U.S. Army, Oracle Corporation, Hewlett-Packard and the U.S. Senate.

Our full-time staff of software training professionals have developed a product line that is the perfect solution for busy individuals. Our comprehensive tutorials cover all of the same material as our classroom trainings. Broken into individual lessons, you can target your training to meet your needs - choosing just the lessons you want (and having the option to watch them all if you like). Our tutorials are also incredibly easy to use.

You will listen and watch as our expert instructors walk you through each lesson step-by-step. Our tutorials also feature the same instruction manuals (in PDF) that our classroom students receive - and include practice exercises and keyboard shortcuts. You will see each function performed just as if the instructor were at your computer. After the lesson has finished, you then "toggle" into the application and practice what you've learned - making it the most effective interactive training solution to learn on your own.
