The holidays have come and gone, and Windows 8 has found its way into the hands of many users either from new PC purchases or upgrades. Luckily, FireLogic trainer Derrick Wlodarz has been using Windows 8 for months now and led a packed training session on the new operating system on January 26, 2013. The class was held at Niles Library to a capacity standing-room only crowd.

The topics that were covered in the two hour class session include:

  • The basics of how to get Windows 8
  • The various editions
  • The Microsoft Surface RT tablet
  • The changes Windows 8 introduced to Windows as we know it
  • How to navigate the new Modern UI interface
  • The basics around installing and using Microsoft Store apps
  • Shortcuts to get around the new interface
  • What the Charms Bar is all about
  • New changes to the traditional desktop
  • New Control Panel items that may make your life easier
  • and much more!

You can view the entire class video on our official YouTube Channel, or just watch the entire recording below:

This was the 3rd presentation of our Windows 8 for Beginners class in recent memory. Due to such high demand, we will likely be re-running this class at both Park Ridge and Niles libraries in mid to late 2013. Watch your library mailers for more information.
