Windows

Windows 10 is the most popular personal computer operating system in the world. It is continuously growing and changing as new technologies, like fingerprint readers and voice recognition, emerge. Oasis Connections updates Windows 10 topic material several times a year as Microsoft issues updates that add features or other enhancements to Windows 10. Windows 10 is covered in detail in the Windows 10, A Guide to Getting the Most Out of Windows 10. Selected topics are also found in Introduction to Computers and Windows 10 Performance and Maintenance.

Instructor information

This course is designed as an introduction to features and settings that every Windows 10 user needs to know. Topics include how to  use the Start menu, download apps, create user accounts, use Cortana, and much more.

Note that Microsoft feature support for Windows 7 ended in 2015, and that extended support, including security updates, ended January 2019. Using Windows 7 is risky, as security holes are no longer being patched. Mainstream support for Windows 8.1 ended in January of 2016. However, Microsoft will continue to offer security updates until June of 2023. However, Microsoft is not supporting Office 2019 or later on anything but Windows 10.
