2/2 Facilities of your System

This is a 4 hour class that I developed for the local computer club. It covers the following subjects.

  • The Desktop
  • The Disks
  • RAM and CPU
  • Useful programs, other Facilities, where to go for help

I provide a 60 page PDF document with all the details covered in the class as well as all links to the facilities I refer to. Each chapter comes with a video that shows it the same way as I present it in class. The length of the videos ranges from 45 minutes to 70 minutes. The links to the videos are at the beginning of each chapter.

The PDF document can be downloaded from my Skydrive page.

2/1 Convert Video or Audio files with Format Factory

It is sometimes required to convert a video or audio file to another format - for example if you want to use it in a Power Point slideshow where you need WAV audio files or you want to play a video downloaded from the internet for which you do not have the right codec. In those cases I suggest you use Format Factory. The program is very easy to use and you can convert in three simple steps. For further detail watch this three minute video tutorial I uploaded to Vimeo.
