  • 1. Software_Website : Part ITop 5 Tech FAQs For Windows NewbiesSo! Youve got your brand new computer all set up after hours of reading instructions,looking at diagrams and trying to figure out which wires, connectors and ports go where.And now that youre up and running, the last thing you want to do is read more complicateddirections to learn how to maneuver through your Windows-based programs.Well, not to worry. The basics are very easy and once you familiarize yourself with just a fewsimple steps, youll be rockin and rollin in no time! Following are the top five top technicalquestions that most Windows newbies (wink, wink) are seeking help with and guidance foreach.Find and Open A ProgramEvery window-based operating system works in the same basic way. Once youve turned onyour computer, you will see a Start button in the bottom left corner of your monitor screen(youll see the Windows icon to the left of the word start). Using your mouse, left click onthat start button and a pop-up window will appear. At the bottom of that pop-up window, onthe left, you will see the word Programs. Without clicking your mouse, slide down toPrograms and then left-click once. All of the programs installed on your PC will appear inthat new window. Slide your mouse over whichever program you want to open and left-clickyour mouse once. That will launch the program for you!Close, Minimize or Maximize a WindowClosing a window is probably one of the easiest things youll ever do. Once youve launcheda program and the window is open, look to the top, right of your program window and youwill see a red box with a white x inside it. Left click that red box and your program willclose. If you have a file open within the window that you havent saved yet, the program willprompt you and ask whether or not you want to save your file.To the left of that little red box, you will also see two more boxes; one will have an emptysquare inside it and the other contains a dash at the bottom. These are your maximize andminimize options. The minimize button allows you to keep the program open but get it out ofthe way, which is particularly helpful if you have more than one program open at the sametime. Just left click once on the dash button and your program will minimize itself to thebottom of your monitor screen. To restore the program back up into your view, click thewindow at the bottom of your screen that has the file name your were working on inside it.To increase your viewing area, you may want to maximize a window. Clicking on the buttondirectly to the left of the close button will maximize your program window to the fulldimensions of your monitor screen. Clicking it again will restore it back to its initial size.Saving Files Your PC
  • 2. Say youve created a document in Word. There are two ways to save your file and thesetechniques are also the same basic methods used for just about every program evercreated.1) There is a little icon (picture) of a diskette in the toolbar at the top of every documentwindow. Left-clicking on that diskette will automatically save your documents. This is a goodway to go if youve already saved your file into a desired folder on your computer and wantto also save as you go so you dont lose any of your content if the program were to freezeor your system were to crash.2) At the top of every document window is a toolbar with the word File on the very left end.Left-click on File and an options window will appear. Slide your mouse down to Save andleft-click once. A new window titled Save As will open. At the bottom of the Save Aswindow will be a white box with the words File Name to the left. Type in the name of yourdocument, click the Save button to the right of that title window and youre done.NOTE: If you want to save your files into the My Documents folder that comes equippedwith every Windows system, click on the My Documents icon in the left of the Save Aswindow before entering the name of your file.Dont be afraid to click on your toolbar buttons or pull-down menus to learn about each oftheir uses (youll want to make sure you save your file first though). Trial and error is one ofthe best ways to learn so go for it!Hiring a web designer to come up with the custom solution that you need can set you backa few thousand bucks.

Battery LifeBattery life was a major issue when the iPod came out. Now, they managed to have adecent playing time with most of their models. The Zune needs to provide a battery lifesimilar to the iPod. We already know that both players have the same kind of battery. Whatwe dont know is how much power the Wi-fi and the bigger screen are going to drain.
  • 3. 2. Hype around Movie DownloadingWith the introduction of movie downloading at iTunes store, Apple could create a buzzstrong enough to put a shadow on the Zune player. Microsoft already announced that theywould not be able to download movies from the Zune Marketplace anytime soon.3. WeightWeight is a major issue with portable devices. Even a small fraction of an ounce can makea difference. We know that the Zune is heavier then the iPod, but only the future will tell ifusers are annoyed by that Zune overweight. Another important aspect is that Microsoftdoes not have a light version of the Zune like the Nano or the Shuffle.4. Ease of useOne of the key features of the iPod is the ease of use. The seamless integration of iTuneswith the iPod is certainly the top reason why the iPod was a huge success. You dont needto be a computer geek to use it. Zune users do not expect anything less from the Zuneplayer and software.5. Prototype look & feelEven more with the brand new design of the iPod, Zune fans are expecting a very attractiveand professional design from the Zune. At this point, photos and videos are not enough tohave a good idea of the quality of the design.6. File FormatsBy turning their back on Playforsure, Microsoft is going against their own fans. This isusually not a good thing! Other formats like .aa are also not currently supported by the Zuneplayer.Hiring a web designer to come up with the custom solution that you need can set you backa few thousand bucks.
