Windows 'How To' Documents

Members of the AACC have written articles on how to do certain things using a computer running Microsoft Windows as its operating system.  Topics covered include:

bullet Email
bullet Hardware
bullet Internet
bullet Software Installation
bullet Windows
bullet Word Processing

All 'How To' documents can be read using the Adobe Acrobat Reader program (or an equivalent application).  The Link icon that looks like a set of tools indicates that the corresponding article was written as part of a tutorial or workshop organised by the AACC.  All other icons that look like the Abobe PDF icon are articles written by members at any time (ie. not part of a tutorial or workshop).

When connected to the Internet you can download the PDF file for that article by right-clicking the Link icon for the article that you want and selecting the Save Target As... option.  You would then select the folder on your hard drive where you would like it saved.
