Quick Tip Tuesday: Got Windows 8?

Here are some small tips and tricks on how to navigate around Windows 8. Hopefully these helpful hints make your life a little easier!
Need To Find Something Specific?

  • Just start typing what you are looking for!
    • Ex. Need to uninstall a program?
      • Windows Key - > Type "Uninstall a program" -> Select Settings (since what we are looking for is a setting, not an app) -> Select "Uninstall a program"
