STOCKTON, Mo. - A Windows 8 training workshop will be taught by Leslie Carroll-Bartlett, retired Extension technology specialist, at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov., 12 at the Cedar County Library, 717 East Street, Stockton, Mo.

Windows 8 has a new look with the Start Screen replacing the Start Menu, and new navigating tools called Apps and Charms.

Attendees will learn to navigate the Start Screen by finger or using the mouse. Participants will learn how to customize the start screen and use the existing desktop. This workshop educates participants on new terms "Charms," "Apps," and "Hot Corners" and how they are used in Windows 8.

The workshop will include moving Apps on the Start Screen, adding Apps and finding new Apps in the App Store. It will also cover "Why do we need a Microsoft Account?" and Using Microsoft Live.
