About this Course

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. 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.


Students need to be confident using the mouse, and creating basic files, therefore they should have:

  • Attended the Windows Getting Started and Word Essential Skills Courses


  • Have the equivalent experience that would be gained from attending the above courses.
