Reply from Richard Rost:

I won't be making any more Windows 7 lessons, but look for more Windows 8 lessons in the near future.

when are you going to have visa 103?


Reply from Richard Rost:

Seymour, I'm probably NOT going to make a Windows Vista 103, but I am going to make several Windows 7 courses. The good news is that once you're beyond the BASIC basics (101 and 102) then Vista and Windows 7 are really very similar - and I will point out the differences. Windows 7 Levels 1 and 2 will be just like Windows Vista 101 and 102. Level 3 will be all new material.

WHAT ELSE DO YOU HAVE ON VISTA BESIDE VISTA 102


Reply from Richard Rost:

As of right now, I only have Windows Vista 101 and 102. I will probably NOT be making any more Vista classes, as I will be focusing on Windows 7 in the near future. The good news is that MOST of the features in Windows 7 are almost the same in Vista, and I'll try to point out the differences. So if you're looking for more advanced Windows training that will work with both Vista and Windows 7, hang in there.

Bill, that's fine. If you use Yahoo mail or GMail or any of those other free web-based email services, then you might never use Windows Mail or Outlook. If that lesson doesn't apply to you, just ignore it. Personally, I don't use Yahoo mail, so I don't know if you can download your mail into Windows Mail from Yahoo. I know you CAN do it from GMail. Look for settings in Yahoo to download "POP" mail. That's what you'll use for the server address in Windows Mail.

I probably will NOT be making any more Windows Vista lessons since Windows 7 is so close to release. I'll probably focus on Windows 7 when it comes out.

Comment from William (Bill) Turner @ 9/6/2009
Hi Rick.
Have just switched from XP to Vista and have listened to your Vista 102 lessons. Found them interesting but could noit understand the Windows mail lecture. Have always used Yahoo to get my email and still do. Quite satisfied with them and more or less know how to manage things. Do not want to change as at 89 find it too difficult to learn new procedures. Should I open up an account with Windows mail and type in my yahoo email address and password? Thanks Bill Turner.
PS Please don't waste any time in preparing the next Windows Vista course.

David, the menu items change depending on what program you're using. I'll be covering more in-depth topics in upcoming lessons.

I WOULD LIKE A LESSON THAT TEACHES TABS SUCH AS "FILE" "VIEW" "EDIT" 'TOOLS" ETC.. NOT JUST VISTA BASICS... MORE SO ON GENERAL COMPUTER BASICS NO MATTER WHAT VERSION OF WINDOWS I HAVE. WHAT DO YOU RECOMEND?

Richard, I really enjoyed the Windows Vista classes. I have had trouble with it not doing Multitasking well. Your class has helped me appreciate its nuances better. And as always you may the class enjoyable.
Thank you,

Susan

Gary, I did a Google Search on the error message, and I found several problems and solutions listed - any one of them could be related to your problem - but they almost all have to do with the fact that you might just have the wrong username and/or password. Check with your ISP and make sure you have the right address and settings. Here's the search I used: Google Search

I have 2 email addresses that I"m trying to put into windows mail. This is why I ordered this class. It didn't answer my question as to why one of the address keeps giving me an error message. I've followed your instructions but I keep getting the message invalid user/password error 0x800ccc90/error number ox800ccc92.  whether you answer this question or not, I'm going to buy more of your courses because your answered questions I couldn't get out of several books.  If you have another video beyond vista 102 please inform me. If not, where do I go to solve this problem?  thank you   Gary Ward
