My Dad has went back to school to get his high school diploma. He is now in the process of doing all of the testing needed to pass and receive his diploma. Classes were hard for him because he knew nothing about computers and most of the class work was on the computer. So I started teaching him Windows 8. My youngest is being homeschooled and is also learning Windows 8 as part of her tech credit.
While teaching them them the basics and tips/tricks I have learned they mentioned I should really start making. I wasn’t really on board with the idea because 1, there are already thousands of videos out there teaching your Windows 8 and number 2, once you do this everyone else starts doing it and then you have all these videos teaching everyone differently. But they kept talking to me about it and finally I decided that if I could just help one person learn something new it would be worth it.
Windows 8 Made Easy
These videos are not for teaching basics. These are just tips/tricks/functions that I learned while playing around with Windows 8. They are more for teaching you how to be productive, use your Windows 8 start screen more, and maybe free up some space on your taskbar/desktop.
There are hundreds of videos out there that teach the basics. I just want to teach you some everyday actions I use that make me a better Windows 8 user.
Group Program and App Tiles On Your Windows 8 Start Screen
Making groups is a great way to not only organize your start screen but also make your more productive. When all of your software and apps are grouped into the same group you know where everything is. You don’t have to hunt down a app or program anymore. I know from talking to clients and friends that this is why a lot of people hate Windows 8. It seems very disorganized.
I really think if you take the time to group yours apps and software you will start seeing how easy it is to use Windows 8 and also how much fun it is. When you start using the start screen more and more you will be able to free up a lot of space on your desktop and taskbar. A organized computer means a happy user and a happy computer because it is not running so hard to keep up with everything.
I hope you really enjoy the video, learn something new, and as always if you have any questions please feel free to ask.
