Lesson 1: Exploring Windows 7 (1:10)

  • Topic 1A: Identify Personal Computer Functionality
  • Topic 1B: Log On to Windows 7
  • Topic 1C: Explore the Desktop
  • Topic 1D: Work with Windows
  • Topic 1E: Access the Help and Support Feature
  • Topic 1F: Turn Off the Personal Computer
    • Leave On vs. Sleep vs. Hibernate vs. Shut Down
      1. A computer that is left “on” all the time, is a potential security risk and is an open invitation internally (by other people) and externally (by hackers and such). (Especially when your network is connected to the outside world AND due to the fact the majority of people, and businesses, do not keep their security software up to date.)
      2. Extends the life of the computer. (A common debate is that turning the PC “on” and “off” promotes a negative impact on the “service life” of the computer. I personally can attest that most computers, with today’s advanced technology, will reach the end of their “useful life” prior to their actual “service life”, even if you turn them “on” and “off” multiple times.);
      3. Could be a potential fire hazard. (I’ve seen computers and monitors go up in smoke.);
      4. Can save electricity. (See U.S. Department of Energy – “When To Turn Off Personal Computers“);
      5. Refreshes the memory and the memory resident programs and services in the computer when you completely do a “cold restart” of the computer. (Many people let their PC’s go into a “sleep/standy mode” or “hibernate” mode. I still prefer what is called a “cold” restart.);
      6. Will keep the internal components of the computer cleaner. (When a computer is “on”, the fans are pushing and pulling air to keep components cool; however, this air flow is a dust magnet.)
