Windows 7 Help Manual

Dear Computer Lady,

Just got Windows 7.

Is there something written so that I might read the “how to” when I have a question?  Of course I would like to have it free, or without very little cost.
I don’t see “help” on this computer.

Thanks, Janice

Dear Janice,

Windows does come with a built in “how to” that you can read like a manual, and search when you have questions. Here is how you access it.

1. Click on “Start”, then click on “Help and Support” in the lower-right portion of the start menu.

2. The Help & Support window will open.

3. There is a search box at the top of the Help & Support window where you can search for answers to your questions.

4. There is also a menu that allows you to select from the following options.

a. Learn how to get started with your computer.
b. Learn about Windows Basics.
c. Browse the help topics.

5. I would suggest that you start with “Learn about Windows Basics” to start learning about Windows 7.
