Windows 10 is a powerful and advanced operating system, however, compared to Windows XP and Vista and 7, it appears complex and can prove difficult to work your way around.
This course demonstrates in simple, easy to understand terms, how to make Windows 10 appear how you want it to, so it is more ‘familiar’. It also demonstrates how to make the most of its new features such as the Cortana voice assistant, Edge browser and multiple desktops. You’ll find that the course is designed to help you learn the basics, be more security aware, disable common annoyances and be more productive. This course is suitable for both novices and experienced users.

Duration: 9:30am – 4:00pm approximately

Equipment: No equipment is necessary for you to bring to the course. Pens and note paper will be available.

Lunch provided: On full day training courses lunch will be provided. Refreshments will be available throughout the duration of this course.
