For those new to Windows 8 the Windows 8 End User Training Brochure might well be worth a look at. Plenty of screenshots and examples. It is a PDF file so you will need a PDF reader which I am sure you all have installed anyway.

Our local paper said the update on W 8 would be released Oct 17 and it would be free for anyone with W 8. I read in here it would be in Oct but don't remember seeing a specific day. Maybe this will help the users who don't like it.

I am really curious about the new OS when it comes out, W 9 I guess it will be called. I am wondering if they go back to the older style.

RE: Windows 8 End User Training Brochure

I have been looking at some of the movies people have posted in youtube but, ehhh, they are better than microsoft's but not well organized and can frustrating when they say or ask you to try something... and a part of the instructions covers something you cannot do yet.

I am waiting for one that will show me how to control the volume, how to "x" out of a window or show me what Windows Explorer/Games/etc was replaced by. Kind of cheap of Microsoft to not include good ole solitaire anymore...

I am still powering off the PC when I have too much stuff open and cannot close them! LOL! Oh well. You do what you have to do, right?

Thanks for the new link, owbist. Will check it out tomorrow.

Get the games on Windows 8. How-To Geek shows you how to copy the games folder from Windows 7 to Windows 8. If you nolonger have a Win 7 machine find a friend :~)

Closing windows. When more than one window is open simply right click on the taskbar icon of the one you wish to close then click to close the program.

If you have a window behind the Start window go to the top left corner and click as it appears.
