Microsoft Windows Tutorial – Lesson 1: Introduction to Computers

The “computer” is an ensemble of different machines that you will be using to get your job done. A computer is primarily made of the Central Processing Unit (usually referred to as the computer), the monitor, the keyboard, and the mouse. Other pieces of hardware, commonly referred to as peripherals, can enhance or improve your experience with the computer.

using a desktop, a laptop, a server, whether you work from home, in an
office, while commuting, taking a class, or using a computer at a public
library.

To use the computer, you must first turn it on. To do
this, the first thing you should find is the power switch that is used to put the unit on. Nowadays, it is usually

eM Client | The Best Email Client for Windows and MacOS

Luciano BellinatoBill Gunn

I had been using Free eM Client (2 accounts) for a while now. Truly, it has exceeded my expectations. I have a “relatively slow” Internet connection, and Outlook would fall over repeatedly, timing out, regardless of how I configured it. Thunderbird kind of worked but was a royal PITA to work with (or at least to configure it to the way I wanted it to work).

I finally decided to consolidate another external (gmail) account into eM Client, and paid for the pro version – awesome.
Most folks usually write something when they want to complain – I do as well (LOL) – but I also like to say Thank You when you get a real good and well supported piece of software.
