Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

No directions came with the computer.What do I need to know?.Some of the icons I have never seen.Help please joan cummins


Answers :

Hi Joan
Depending on the type of computer you have and the operating system you are running will depend on what icons are displayed. If you have a windows pc running XP or Vista then the icons can look different at first.

The pc should also come with a getting started tutorial which would help you get started right away
The best idea would be to Click on START then All Programms then Accessories then TOUR WINDOWS XP

Work you way through this tutorial and if you are still finding you need more help then look around and find a company or individual who can give you some computer lessons.\015\012This way you will save money in the long run as there is so much to\015\012learn when you are not familiar with pc's.

Of course for all your quick solutions using FixYa is a great way to get answers quickly...

I hope this has helped

Warmest Regards
John
This will give you some basics about how Windows XP works
Have you tried to go to the manufacturer's website to download the manuals?
\015\012right click your mouse over the icon and see what the program is.
\015\012or you can go to start settings control panel add/remove programs and see the list of installed software. (most installed programs have icons, others, such as java, won't).
\015\012double click any icon and the particular program will start. click on the red X in the upper right corner to close any program.
