Windows 10

To help you get used to Windows 10, here are a list of a few things that have changed since Windows 7:

  • The START MENU looks different, but works similarly to the Start Menu in Windows 7.  Here you can find a list of your installed programs, and access power options for shutting down or restarting the PC.  You can access it by clicking the Windows icon in the bottom left, or by pressing the Windows icon on your keyboard.
  • The SETTINGS option in the Start Menu is a new version of Control Panel, which you can access by clicking the small gear icon in the lower left of the start menu.  However, if you need the old version of Control Panel, you can access it by right-clicking the START MENU button.  
  • Windows Explorer (where you browse your computer and access files) has been renamed FILE EXPLORER, but works in the same way.  You can access it by clicking the folder icon on the Task Bar beside the Windows icon.
  • Windows can now mount ISO disk images without third-party software.
  • Microsoft Security Essentials has been renamed WINDOWS DEFENDER.  
  • SMART SCREEN is a Windows program that will attempt to block harmful or unknown files.  If you see it pop up, check to make the file is from a trusted source.
