Windows 10 is the most powerful operating system that Microsoft has ever made, but it’s also the most complex. While the user interface is extremely intuitive, you’ll have to dig a little deeper to customize your experience, get maximum performance, and make the most of features such as Cortana voice assistant, Edge browser, and multiple desktops. In this course, which is intended for both experienced Windows users and beginners alike, we will do some of the digging that needs to be done to make full use of these and some of the other tools of Windows 10, including possibly Outlook, OneDrive, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint and Sway, with the choice depending on the collective interests of the class. Attendees will benefit opti- mally if they can bring to class a laptop PC or other Windows 10 compatible device (such as MS Surface or HP Stream) and “play along” using the guest Wi-Fi privileges offered by Washington College.
