Overview/Description
Microsoft Windows 8 is the latest version of the Microsoft Windows PC desktop operating system.

This course will introduce learners to key new features of Windows 8 and also demonstrate how to interact with the new UI using either mouse and keyboard or a touch screen device. Other topics covered include navigating the new UI and performing common tasks.
