RE: new computer

Do you have either an adult class center or a college? Some senior centers offer classes also. You might check with them. I get spell check with Google. There are places to check to get that.

win 8 has a pretty good built in spell check for this type of forums. I don't think it will let me speel wrong without pointing it out.

RE: new computer

Just looking at the EIGHTFORUMS link makes me wonder if I even dare to try WIN8

I bought a Kingston Flash drive to put some things on to take to another PC when I get one. I went to their web site and it is also confusing.

I remember when computers were fun!!

RE: new computer

When it's convenient and you have a cup of tea available you might want to spend time with the on-board Windows 8 Help file. You would be surprised how much you can pick up by doing so. Not only will you learn protocols and procedures, you will also learn the correct phraseology to assist in researching on Google.

In the end you will be fine. Enjoy the new system.

RE: new computer

On the main screen showing the tiles there is a tile that has a tutorial on the basics of Windows 8. I think it says "Getting Started".

Google is your friend. If you can't figure something out just do a search in Google, "how do I...??? using Windows 8?"
