Microsoft Windows 8 is the latest version of the Microsoft Windows PC desktop operating system. This version represents a significant upgrade, incorporating a completely new tablet-style user interface. For those who prefer to work in the more conventional Windows desktop interface, it will be still available as an app. Other upgrades include the Ribbon element that users of the Office applications will be familiar with, now applied to Internet Explorer 10.
This course will introduce learners to key new features of Windows 8 and also demonstrate how to interact with the new UI using either mouse and keyboard or a touch screen device. Other topics covered include navigating the new UI and performing common tasks.
