GCC offers Windows 8 workshop Oct. 19

Windows 8 was first launched last October to what many have called mixed reviews. The new approach with a Start Screen and tiles instead of a Start Button has caused a fair amount of confusion. Like any new operating system, it just takes some getting used to and having a better understanding of the features.

Ray Baxter, a Gila Community College computer instructor, will be conducting a three hour class explaining the basics of using Windows 8 on Saturday, October 19th from 9 am – noon. This class is geared for those who have purchased a new computer with this operating system as well as those who are contemplating buying a new Windows 8 computer during the upcoming holiday season.

Those with new laptops are encouraged to bring them to the class for some hands-on training. A $10.00 donation to Friends of Rim Country GCC, Inc. requested for attendance.  Call 928-468-8039 to register.
