Hand-outs from Classes
at Flathead Community College
Kalispell, Montana
Too many people have to learn how to use computers with the "click here" method. Then the instructor goes away, and you have no clue what to do when you "click there" instead of "click here." The following pages are based on the handouts for the three-hour workshop series at FVCC.
  • A Gentle Start in Computers
    What is a Computer?

    What is a Mouse?
    What is Windows?

  • Windows: It Does More than You Think
    - Saturday afternoon 1:15 - 4:15, Feb. 4 or March 11

    Windows is your view inside your computer. Almost everything on your screen is a way for you to communicate with your computer. Find out how to boss your computer around! Learn how to organize the stuff in your computer so you can find things later.
  • Windows: There's Even More
    - Saturday morning 8:30 - 11:30, Feb. 18

    Learn how to manage your files with Windows Explorer. Learn how to change the settings in Windows to make your computer work and look more the way you want it through the Control Panel. This workshop builds on the skills learned in "It Does More Than You Think."
  • Word Processing: It Isn't Just Typing Any More
    - Saturday afternoon 1:15 - 4:15, Feb. 18

    Discover how you can manipulate the text you type to create more interesting and professional-looking documents. The course level assumes that you know how to use a mouse and have basic typing skills.
