Overview

Windows 8 is the biggest change to Microsoft’s operating system in almost twenty years, and in Total Training for Windows 8, Bob Flisser will get you up to speed quickly. After finishing this Windows 8 course, you will know how to make Windows adapt to your needs, rather than the other way around. You will learn how to pin important programs and web sites to the Start screen and remove those you don’t need.
