Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video Touring Windows 7: Part 3, part of CompTIA A+ (220-902) Cert Prep: 1 Introduction to Computers.
- One of the big challenges Microsoft…has had from day one was the idea…of sharing stuff on a network.…In the most simple Windows model…you only can have two types of organizations.…You can have a workgroup,…which is just a group of computers…and everybody can share folders…as well as access other people's folders.…There's not much security there, a little bit but not a lot.…The other one is a Windows domain.…In order to do a Windows domain you need a copy…of Windows Server which is expensive,…and you setup one machine as the server system.…
And you can create accounts that are on…that one particular domain and you can login to any computer…and get to your desktop and (gibberish).…It's really cool, it's really powerful,…and it's too much for smaller networks.…However, workgroups also need a lot of configuration.…If you wanna share something with somebody else…you gotta right-click on a folder,…hit sharing, give it a share name.…Then you gotta go to the other computer…and you gotta go, "go grab that share."…And you put that share up on your desktop…
In this introductory course, Mike Meyers explains the basics of how a computer works and the operational procedures that are key to any well-running IT team, including soft skills such as professionalism, communication, and safety. In Chapter 2, Mike tours the four most recent versions of Windows, as well as the OS X and Ubuntu Linux operating systems. He shows how to navigate to essential tools in each OS and explains how to manage virtual memory (RAM).
