Learn all the essential features of Windows 10, including everything you need to know to install Windows 10, customize it to your liking, and start working with files and applications.
- [Instructor] Welcome to Windows 10 Essential Training, I'm Nick Brazzi. Before we get started, please be aware that there was a significant update to Windows 10 in August 2016 which was called the anniversary update. If you are using Windows after running the anniversary update, you should switch over to a different course called Windows 10 Anniversary Update Essential Training. This course focuses on Windows 10 before that update and is offered here for anybody who has not yet installed that update.
In this course I'll start by getting you familiar with some key concepts to help you understand what an operating system is and its role as the primary foundation and interface on your computer. We'll cover the essentials of getting Windows installed or configured on a new or upgraded computer. We'll spend some time getting used to the core interface and system elements, like organizing files on the hard drive using File Explorer as well as launching and managing applications with the Start menu and task bar. I'll introduce several of the applications that come built into Windows, including The Edge web browser and the mail, calendar, and address book applications.
We'll explore the process of installing new applications and we'll look at several important configuration options including how to establish a backup system, sharing files through a basic home network, and managing multiple user accounts. There's a lot to cover in Windows 10, so let's get started.
