Introduction to Windows 10 - part 2
||This accompanies one of a series of
workshops given at Vancouver's Brock House.
Part 1 looked at Windows
10 - it's history and its user interface: Start Menu, Taskbar, Desktop,
the many ways to start programs and Settings. This part will look how
to make Windows 10 work for you, customizing its set up and settings
and improving privacy and security.
We'll start in the Settings - the replacement for the Control Panel used in older Windows versions. There are multiple ways to open Settings - listed in Part 1. One way is to click on the Start Button (in the lower-left corner of the screen at the end of the Taskbar), then look for a gear icon near the lower-left of the Start Menu. (Wherever you see that gear icon, you can open Settings.
However you open it, you should see a window with icons - each one opens a different section of settings. We're going exploring!
Note that there are 'Quick Action' icons for many of these settings - a faster way to (for instance) turn Airplane Mode on or off. Click on the icon on the far right-hand end of the Taskbar for the Notification & Action Center. (More on these in Part 1).
