Windows Vista 101
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Facebook Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on Google Plus Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost

Windows Vista 101 is the perfect course for someone new to Windows Vista who wants to learn how to use their computer - or for computer novices upgrading from an earlier version of Windows, like XP.

We'll learn about the history of Windows, what the different versions of Vista have in them, and which version is right for you.

You will learn how to properly use the Mouse, take a tour of the new and enhanced Start Menu, learn how to manipulate a window, play Solitaire to practice mouse techniques, and learn how to create shortcuts.

Excellent. Need to watch it again though. Only really used my computer for the internet. So much new information. Feel stupid that I know so little. Wish I had found these tutorials before. So much easier than learning from a book.Thank you Richard

Yes. Vista comes with both Wordpad and Notepad.

A quick question before starting the lesson.  Does Vista come with a text editor such as Word Pad?

The Amicron Video Player has a fixed size for the videos to display them at their optimum height and width. If you wish to make them bigger, click on the EXTERNAL check box at the top of the player. This will make the videos open up in your Windows Media Player. You can then maximize, minimize, or resize them to any size you like.

Jacqueline, you're in the right place to learn how to use Windows Vista. Just keep on with the Vista 101 class. Now, when you say you want to get your old programs back, did you just recently get a new computer with Vista on it, or did you UPGRADE your old computer to Vista? You might need to re-install your programs if you have a fresh install of Vista on your PC.
