Course Details

Microsoft: The Home Office
Many people are puzzled by what often appears to be the complexity of managing your computer. So, in an effort to help all of us understand and manage our “home office” we will begin with some explanations. In this course I will work with you to assist you in understanding your computer “filing cabinet’s” folders which can include: documents, pictures, music and videos. We will discuss Managing and making your folders and files. We will learn about renaming folders and files, deleting, moving, sorting single and even in bulk management of files. Plus, I’ll discuss understanding properties of file types and sizes. We shall even discuss printing files in several ways, not on paper. And, of course, use of the other mouse button. I will talk about binomial counting and bits and bytes. And we will review mailing files according to size allowances for both Microsoft and Google. Then I will show you how to capture files from the internet and manipulate them into usable formats. How to Store files in the cloud and use clouds to mail oversize packages using Microsoft’s OneDrive and Google’s GDrive. Finally, I will show you how to edit files, specifically music and pictures for presentation as a jpg screen show and or mp4 video file and maybe as a course for ElderCollege! Class Size: Max 25
