Computers are wonderful tools that require hardware to operate but need software and operating systems to truly sing. At one time, software was a rare commodity, but today we are faced with a wealth of choices for performing business or personal tasks. In this course, you will explore the basics of computer software concepts, beginning with various kinds of software (productivity, collaboration, and business) and application delivery methods. Then you will learn about architectural models, single-platform and cross-platform software, software licensing, and software installation best practices. Next, you will discover the ins and outs of web browsers, focusing on clearing caches, client-side and server-side scripting, and browser extensions. Finally, you will examine browser configuration and find out how to block popups and scripts. This course helps prepare learners for the CompTIA IT Fundamentals (ITF+) certification exam, FC0-U61.
