I am a total newbie, and born the wrong side of 1950, am a total buffoon in things electronic. I know where the on off switch is, and usually get my grand kids to show me how to use my cell phone. However I am willing to listen and learn. What I usually learn is "Go and see an expert" I enjoy what computers do for me. Learn't a few basics, which I will never forget.. Most important is that a computer only does what you tell it to do. However it also speeds up my mundane office chores, and is extremely accurate.
Have a good day all
