The day's workshop will focus on using PCs running the Windows 2000 operating system. Participants will learn their way around the computer, including basics such as mouse and keyboard hardware and the common features of program windows. More advanced topics such as file organization and desktop customization will also be covered. At the end of the day, we will talk about common sources of Windows frustration (the disappearing toolbar, the frozen PC), offer useful tips, and reserve some time for questions and answers before concluding.
