In General

Microsoft Windows is by far the popular operating system in use today. Learning Windows is essential for any person looking to get a start in the IT field. In general, it operates as most operating systems do:

1. The OS loads shortly after the BIOS screen.

2. Once loaded, you select a user account to login.

3. Once logged in, you arrive at a desktop screen where you choose what to do next.

4. There is a command line interface for power users that can, once the syntax is learned, be used to perform tasks more efficiently. NOTE: There is often a way to get things done through a GUI, but it generally has much less options and is much slower.
