This will  be another important workshop.
1. Desktop Screen.
2. Start Screen.
3. Cortana, (you will love her)
4. Edge, Microsoft 's new browser like IE but much faster.
5. Control Panel for Windows 7, 8.1, 10.

Please attend, but if you cannot, you can watch it at home on your computer:

Welcome to the wonderful world of computing. 
Joe Isaac     
The familiar Windows 7 Desktop is back, only better. 
These are my Windows 10 screens,
In the Taskbar you will have a few new icons which will make computing must faster and easier.
On the bottom left is the Start button, Search Box, a microphone icon, click on microphone icon and ask Cortana a question, or type in the Search Box.   The next icon is called Task View and will show Apps that are open. Click on the crazy e and it will open EDGE.

Windows 10 has a Desktop Screen, just like Windows 7 -- only better. Windows 10 boots straight to the desktop.

This is Windows 10 Start Screen, It has a list of your most used apps, most visited folders and recently added software. If this list is not there, click on the 4 lines at the top left.  Power button on the bottom left (turn computer off)
Bottom left, click on the 4 lines or All apps and you will see all your apps in a single list.  Right click an App and select Pin to Taskbar, Pin to Start. 

    To toggle between the Windows Desktop Screen and the Start Screen, hit the Window key on the Keyboard or left click the Start button on the left side of the Taskbar. You might notice that both screens have the Taskbar.
You can still use your old programs like Windows Live Mail, Photo Gallery, Quicken, Word, and so on just like always.
