    For those that need a little help navigating Win8


    I made a set of nine Windows 8 video tutorials for the members of my computer club. I thought I post them here for those that are just starting with Windows 8. Maybe you find them useful.

    The controls of the videos are stored in a PDF on Skydrive. If you have the PDF add-in in your browser, you can operate them right there. Else use Chrome or download the one PDF page.

    Thanks Wolfgang.

    I've saved the PDF and will give them a go if I can get up the ambition. I was one of the many turned off by the whole idea of Metro and have only played with Win 8 for a few hours.

    That's a good one, LOL. I have not had a day job since 20 years when I retired.
