Mobile devices are becoming increasingly popular. As a result, many business professionals find themselves regularly performing a greater number of work-related tasks, from a variety of devices. You may find yourself included in this group of multiple-device users. But, you still perform a majority, or at least a large part, of your work from a desktop or a laptop computer.

With the release of Microsoft® Windows® 10, Microsoft has made strides in bridging the gap between your laptop or desktop PC and a variety of mobile devices. Developing an understanding of how to accomplish your day-to-day work tasks in this new environment will push you one step closer to being able to comfortably work from a number of platforms, and a number of devices, nearly anywhere you go. Once you've gained a foundational understanding of how to operate within the Windows 10 environment from your PC, you'll be able to take full advantage of the many sharing, storing, and multi-platform benefits inherent in the Windows 10 operating system.

Course Objectives
In this course, students with a prior knowledge of Windows 7 will be able to perform common tasks within the Windows 10 environment.
You will:
• Navigate the Windows 10 environment.
• Work with apps and desktop applications.
• Use Cortana and Edge.
• Manage Windows 10.
• Secure your computer.
• Use Backup and Recovery Tools.

Target Student
This course is designed for students who wish to switch from using a PC running on the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system to using a PC running on the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system in a business or work-related environment.

To ensure success, you should have a prior working knowledge of the Windows 7 operating system and be proficient in the general use of personal computers and related peripheral devices.
