Windows 8 is a polarizing Operating System. Some people love it, some people despise it. Newcomers struggle how to navigate Windows 8’s confusing Graphical User Interface, can’t figure out how to shut down applications and don’t know where to find the control panel. Wouldn’t it be awesome if there was a Windows 8 Training Guide available from Microsoft?
Well, there is. And Microsoft has done a wonderful job of hiding it.
Apparently, in May of 2013, Microsoft finally got around to publishing a Windows 8 Training Guide on their website. While it took several months for Microsoft to put this guide up, it is a very helpful resource for users that are new to the Operating System. The Windows 8 Training Guide is also helpful for those of us who have toiled learning how to function normally in an Operating System that is better under the hood than its predecessors but lacking in overall useability.
