FREE Upgrade Coming Soon!

2020 UPDATE: am currently in the process of upgrading my lessons for Windows 10. I expect to have them finished very soon. When they are released, you will get a FREE upgrade if you have purchased any of my Windows lessons after August 1st, 2020. In the mean time, if you're currently using newer versions of Windows, give these lessons a try. You might learn a few things. I don't get a whole lot of demand for Windows training, which is why I haven't bothered to re-record them until now. But don't worry... updated videos are coming soon!

Do you need to learn Windows 8? Whether you've recently purchased a new PC with Windows 8 on it, or you have a little experience with older versions of Windows, or you just want to see what the new features of Windows 8 are, this class is for you.   - History & Versions of Windows   - What's New in Windows 8   - The New Start Menu   - Windows Modern Interface   - Apps & Programs   - Configuring Windows 8   - PC Settings, Control Panel   - Customizing Windows 8   - Virus Scan, Firewall, Security Click here for more information on Windows 8 Beginner Level 1, including a course outline, sample videos, and more.

Dear Richard,
I just bought an HP envy 4-1117nr. It had Windows 8 pre-installed. Everything worked OK to set up my account.  I even activated my Norton anti virus. Upon restart, it tells me my password is incorrect. I am locked out now. Read More...

Hi Rick.
what is a difrence between windows 7 and windows vista

Reply from Richard Rost:

They're just different versions of Windows. Vista was a train wreck (lots of problems). Windows 7 is my favorite to date. Windows 8 has a lot of great enhancements under the hood, but I hate the new Modern interface. Read More...
