But take a deep breath and relax! Whether you're considering an upgrade to Windows 7, have already upgraded, or got "stuck" with it on a new computer that you've bought recently, you'll be pleased to know that Windows 7 just might arguably be the best operating system that Microsoft has yet to create. While Windows ME is considered a big mistake by a lot of people, Windows 7 is being hailed as the best yet.
Over the duration of this course, we're going to cover all the features of Windows 7. It's our goal to make the new features familiar to you. However, it's also our goal to teach you to use Windows 7 in the way it was intended so you can enjoy its benefits and reap the rewards from this modern, insightful operating system.
You'll learn to:
- Quickly and easily navigate the desktop
- Take advantage of new shortcuts and features
- Use libraries to organize all your files like never before
- Keep your system safe and secure from spyware and viruses
- Set parental controls
- Use Windows Media Player to watch TV
- Easily view all open windows at once using the taskbar
- And much, much more!
By the time you finish this course, you'll know Windows 7 even better than you knew your previous operating system. What's more, you'll love it so much that'll wonder why Microsoft didn't think of creating something easy, yet user friendly, before.

Lesson 1: Introduction to Windows 7Welcome to Windows 7, the latest operating system introduced by Microsoft. Chances are, you were just getting used to Vista when this came out.
Lesson 2: The Mechanics of Windows 7A window is what pops up whenever you open a program, file, or folder. Everything you see that appears over the top of your desktop is a window. Internet Explorer opens in a window.
Lesson 3: Files, Folders, Flash Drives, Libraries, and CDsIt makes it so much easier to understand Windows 7 and organize your files and folders if you understand the organization system Windows has created for you.
Lesson 4: Programs and FilesPrograms could be defined as tools. They are the things that allow you to create documents, edit pictures, create spreadsheets, add numbers, play a certain game, and on and on.
Lesson 5: Finding Lost or Misplaced Files, Folders, and ProgramsOnce you've had your computer for any length of time, finding something on it can be a chore!
Lesson 6: PrintingMost of the time, what you see on your screen is how it will look on paper if it's printed. However, don't mistake most of the time for all the time.
Lesson 7: The Internet and EmailIf you bought a computer ten years ago, the Internet was something you had to go through and set up. Although computers at that time were certainly Internet compatible to some degree, that wasn't their main purpose in life.
Lesson 8: Protect Your PCAlthough Windows 7 is a lot better than Vista, sometimes it still can't distinguish between you trying to do something on your computer and a virus.
Lesson 9: Customizing Windows 7It almost goes without saying that Windows 7 is endlessly customizable. These days, a person's computer is as distinctive as their haircut or their style of clothes.
Lesson 10: Prevent Windows CrashesWe've all heard the horror stories about the illusive "blue screen of death"--an event that's supposed to tell you that your computer has just shuffled off the electrical coil.
Lesson 11: Connecting to a NetworkMany households nowadays have more than one computer. In fact, it's not at all unusual for each member of a household to have his or her own.
Lesson 12: Using Media PlayerIf you've used PC's in the past, chances are pretty good that you're at least somewhat familiar with Windows Media Player. It has been included in every Windows operating system since 1991's Windows 3.0.
Lesson 13: Photos and MoviesThere was a time when using a computer meant using a word processor or spread sheet or playing a simple game like Solitaire. It was just a tool to help us complete our daily tasks in as efficient a manner as possible.
Lesson 14: Common Complaints with Windows 7 -- and Their FixesIf there is one true maxim when it comes to personal computers, it's got to be "You can't please all of the people all of the time."
Appendix: Upgrading to Windows 7The truth is, Windows 7 runs very well on computers that are no more than three to four years old. Computers older than that may not have the power to host this operating system.
