Microsoft Windows 8 operating system (OS) is for use on personal computers, laptops and tablets.

Windows 8 introduced significant changes to the operating system's graphical user interface and platform for a fast and fluid experience with emphasis on touchscreen input and with added security. Visible enhancements include an improved Start screen, additional snap views, additional bundled apps, tighter OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) integration, Internet Explorer 11, restoration of a visible Start button on the taskbar, and the ability to restore the previous behavior of opening the user's desktop on login instead of the Start screen.

End users will want to attend our Windows 8 Introduction class to develop an undertstanding of how to accomplish daily work tasks in this environment.

We offer several Windows 8 classes for IT professionals. Those classes are authorized, hands-on training that use official Microsoft products and are facilitated by a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT).

Attend hands-on, instructor-led training classes at ONLC's more than 300 locations. Not near one of our locations? Attend these same live classes from the convenience of your home/office PC via our Remote Classroom Instruction (RCI) technology.
