Let me start by saying this is going to be a long one.
You might say that the computer problem is me. At one time I was a
techie and loved a challenge. I even worked for a business as a trainer
and installer of computers and adaptive technology. I worked all
over the state of Wisconsin with all kinds of people at various levels of
computer knowledge. I enjoyed the work but moved away from there and got
away from adaptive technology, but of course, still used tech. I still
have a computer that a friend of mine and myself put together. This is
the machine that I am writing on right now. It was built in 2004 and
still flies. All parts are industrial grade and you can tell. This
machine has XP on it but can be upgraded with a bit of hardware
replacement. I did have a laptop that has Windows 7 on it but
never really liked it. In fact, I have two machines that have 7 on
them. I never really got the hang of 7, but wasn't apposed to it, just
never really got it and didn't have anyone to help me figure it out. I
am not stupid and not a slow learner, but I just don't get it. Now we
come to the problem. A couple of months ago,I received a Del laptop with
Windows 10 on it. I am so frustrated with it. I just don't
understand 10. I don't understand the start menu, the layout, how to
find things and so much more. I get that there is a search at the top of
the start menu and I can search for things, but do I hit tab, enter or
what? I want to personalize it and get things going but I can't even
find my way around the thing. Every time I try to do anything with it, I
run in to road blocks.
What I really need is someone to help me learn
everything. Someone who would be willing to start out from the beginning
or basics and go from there. If I know something, we can move on.
I would be willing to pay obviously for your time but otherwise I just don't
know what to do. I feel totally frustrated and don't know where to
turn. If anyone has any ideas, or knows of anyone that is good with
teaching computers, could you please let me know? I feel embarrassed
coming out here on these lists, but I truly do not know what else to do.
I have to move on and learn this, but it just isn't working this way.
Thanks for any help with this.
