Event Description

Examine How The Windows Operating System Interacts With Programs, Apps And Files

There are many versions of the Windows Operating System being utilized in consumer homes and businesses. Throughout the course of this session, Stacey Albrecht will discuss the latest version of the Windows Operating System (Windows 8), so you become familiar with some of the new features, which are drastically different from previous versions of the software. She will explore the new interface, Cloud as a means for storage, connections between social apps and Windows, and will provide helpful tips and tricks as end-users; whether in a corporate or home setting.

Learn About The New Interface:
The start screen is the new way of navigating the Windows 8 environment. You will learn how the screen works from a navigation standpoint, learn to add apps to the start screen, understand the new charms, customize the start screen and more.

What is the Cloud?
The cloud is free external storage that comes with your Microsoft account. Learn how to save documents to the cloud (using SkyDrive), backup photos and more. Cloud storage is a term used to describe services that enable you to store files on remote servers across the Internet. Some well-known examples of these services include Microsoft SkyDrive, Apple iCloud, Google Drive, and Dropbox.

Let’s Get Social:
Windows 8 lets you automatically connect to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, and other popular social services. If you link these accounts to your Windows 8 PC, Windows 8 will sync your mail, appointments, contacts, and more from your social media accounts to your PC. A lot of these social apps will be accessed through the new start screen.
