Whenever a new OS is introduced (regardless of what type of computer you're accustomed to) it's important to take a look at the new tools and see what the buzz is all about –especially when a majority of today's programs are cross platform!

Windows 8, Microsoft's much heralded new OS, is the first major operating system to incorporate both touch and the traditional UI into a single user experience.
Whether you’re new to Windows or upgrading from XP, Vista or Windows 7, this course will introduce you to this new OS and help get you started on a solid footing.

There's a lot of new features in Windows 8 and it’s easy to understand how new and longtime Windows users could find it difficult to make the transition. That’s why we collaborated with expert Gary Grudzinskas. Gary has a wonderful way to make seemingly complicated concepts really simple to understand. In this introductory course, Gary—with his friendly and entertaining teaching style—will guide you step by step into the new Windows 8 world.

Get a grasp of the new look and feel. See how to sign in and create your User Account. Learn about Charms, Libraries, File Explorer, File History and Defender. Master the Control Panel, Action Center, the new safety features and so much more.

So sit back and relax because by watching this course you'll soon be comfortable and confident in the new Windows 8 environment... and be sure to check out our ever-expanding library of Windows 8 courses!
