If you are new to Windows 8 and rate yourself as the average computer user, then you may find Windows 8, in its’ present form, a challenge. When I make the statement, “in its’ present form”, I’m referring to the upgrade that will soon take place that will bring Windows 8 back down to earth where the average computer person resides. Windows 8 is a really good operating system; it has been the new graphical user interface and missing start menu that has thrown people off. In reality, not a big deal; however, Microsoft realized that they were shooting for the moon and may have advanced the user interface a little bit too far, too fast. The Windows 8 upgrade, last I read, is to correct these issues and make it so that people can be eased into the future proposed changes.
In the meantime, if you just purchased a computer with Windows 8, I really encourage you to take some time and watch (and read) these tutorials, which are all FREE from GCFLearnFree.org .
