Learn My Way

Using a computer

Once you’ve mastered the basics you’ll probably want to know a little bit more about your computer. To help you make the most of your time online, you might need to change some of the settings to make it just right for you. For instance you might want to make the screen brighter or make the text larger.

Knowing how to properly store your files and folders will make life easier too. You’ll want to make sure you know where everything is, whether it’s photos, documents or anything else! If you’re ready to find out more, click the ‘Start Using a computer’ button below to start the using your computer course.
