This course focuses mainly on Windows File Management. We'll teach you all about files and folders, how to create, copy, cut, paste, move, and edit files and folders. We'll teach you some advanced file management tips, tricks, and techniques. We'll learn about the Windows file heirarchy. We'll learn all of the ins-and-outs of the Windows File Explorer. Plus, we'll teach you how to properly use the Recycle Bin... and more!

If you use Windows, but you just "get by" poking around with your files and folders - and not really understanding how any of this stuff works, this is the course for you. By the end of these lessons, you'll be organizing your hard drive into folders, and subfolders - and you won't have to "guess" where your files are anymore.
