Are you the owner of a new Windows 8 computer and want to learn how to use it? Are you coming from a previous version of Windows and you aren’t quite sure where to find things now? Or maybe, you are looking to do a specific task like check email, or view your photos, and you just want simple step by step directions with lots of pictures to show you how? Well, you’ve come to the right place for all of that and more.
