I need to study some tutorials to at least give me a basic computer knowledge, but the sheer number is mind boggling! Can anyone suggest about 5 tutorials, just as a start, for an old novice? Thanks!

I looked at the tutorial section. That's what I found so overwhelming! I basically know how to turn the computer on, navigate the web( for the most part :thumbsup: ), email, have managed to fumble my way through a couple of problems I've had, and well- not a heck of a lot else...so consider me a babe in the woods. I need to start with the very basics.

Thanks! I'm going to start reading from top to bottom. At least this should give me a bit of an idea what I'm doing(I hope!)
