Hello all, from the UK (South Midlands)!



Many thanks for the helpful Tutorials - have been reading some of them and found them useful.


I've been using PCs/Windows for  around 13 years in a work environment, but have never owned my own until a few weeks ago.  So I'm quite a novice, but keen to learn!  Here are the PC specs:


PC: Dell Inspiron 17R SE (7720) laptop.

Processor: 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3630QM, upto 3.4 GHz, 6M cache.

Display: 17.3in Full High Definition (1080p) LED.

Memory: 8GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz.

Hard drive: 1TB Serial ATA (5400RPM).

Video card: 2GB Nvidia GeForce GT 650M 130W.

Optical drive: 8x DVD+/-RW.

Wireless: Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 Card (802.11n + BT 4.0).

OS: Windows 8 64-bit.


I've waded through 'Windows 8 all-in-one for dummies' book, which I found a great starting point, but realise there's so much more to learn!


I look forward to your help and assistance (and any I can give!) and thank you in advance.



Best wishes, NipNip1964.

Many thanks Roger.



After i've read the 'Basic Concepts' tutorials, my next port of call is going to be the 'Windows 8' ones.  I look forward to reading them.


I'm delighted a place like this exists!
