Learn how to be in command of your computer with the power to make changes using right clicking. Right clicking is one of the most powerful operations you can perform with your mouse, and it can be used in many places on your computer. For example, it provides shortcuts to many menu items in Windows. In fact, some features are only accessible this way. Learn how to use this right-click feature to become a better PC user. If you don’t know how to use the right button you are not realizing the full power of your computer.

The course will be conducted on Windows 8.1 computers in the Computer Teaching Center. The instructor will quickly introduce you to the new Windows 8 user interface. Having Windows 8 on your personal home computer is not required, as the Desktop environment on Windows 8 is nearly identical to that of Windows 7, with a few minor exceptions. The skills you learn will be applicable to all Windows 7 and Windows 8 computer users.


To be successful in this course, you must have completed the COMPUTER COLLEGE PREP SCHOOL course and be familiar with material in AFTER PREP SCHOOL BASICS – LEVEL 1 or have otherwise developed enough computer skills to be very comfortable using your computer.
