This course gives you the knowledge and skills to work with document files or images and place them into folders, and how to save, retrieve, move, copy, organize, rename or delete them.
To get the most out of it you need to have basic mouse and keyboard skills
and some understanding of how to navigate through Windows (Internet Explorer) systems.
Knowing how and why files are stored systematically, and learning the quickest ways to work with them will make your ‘computer housekeeping’ much easier.
Folders can be organised in several ways within a directory (which may be called a “library” in more recent systems), by year, job, family name etc and are like branch
es on a tree. Usually a folder contains a group of similar files with a name to match. Files e.g. word doc or jpg are placed within these folders.
The course covers ways to find lost files (using the “search” function) and recover deleted files from the Recycle Bin.
You will also learn how to find and remove obsolete and ‘junk’ files.
Prerequisite: Introduction to computing at same time if without experience.
Course consists of two consecutive classes.
Cost: $5 per class, total of $10, paid at first attendance.
