About this Course

Learn how to organise your files so you can retrieve them quickly and efficiently. This File Management course instils the confidence to manage files in any situation.This is the prerequisite for almost all other courses.

Our aim is to make you familiar with the Microsoft Windows environment (referred to here as Windows) and conventions in order to manage your files effectively.

Windows is the operating system at the core of your computer. Every other piece of software you use is influenced and controlled by the operating system.


As a prerequisite we highly recommend the Windows Getting Started and Word: Essential Skills courses or the equivalent knowledge and experience.

At Course Completion

In this course we cover such features as:

  • Understanding why we need to manage our files.
  • Identify and use the tools available to manage our files.
  • Create folders to divide our storage.
  • Move, Copy and Delete files.
  • Locate files by specifying partial names, creation dates or words contained in the files.

It is important that you use your new skills as soon as possible on completion of this training course. We encourage you to take your own notes and to review this Course Guide once you are back at your workplace.
