These Windows 8 Foundation training materials include everything you need to get started with Microsoft's latest operating system. Whether you've used previous versions of Windows before, or you're just getting started with a computer, you'll find this course invaluable.

Section One focuses on the basics of Windows 8. Topics will include ways to interact with the computer, an overview of touch gestures, information on the Start screen and the desktop, and ways to power down Windows 8.

Section Two is all about the Start screen. To start, you'll learn how to launch apps and manage app tiles. You'll also learn how to use the Charms bar, manage notifications, and download new apps from the Windows Store.

Section Three focuses on the basic Windows 8 applications. First, you will learn about creating and managing accounts on Windows 8 (both local and Microsoft). Then, you will take an in-depth look at five of the most popular apps: Mail, Calendar, People, Messaging, and Photos.

Section Four continues the theme of Windows 8 apps, with information on Internet Explorer as well as the General News, Bing, Finance, Travel, Sports, Maps, and SkyDrive apps.

Section Five switches focus to the Windows 8 desktop. To begin, you will learn about the basic parts of the desktop, including the desktop itself, the taskbar, and the system tray. Then, you will move onto window management techniques, desktop features, jump lists, and the basics of working with a program.
