Computers are probably the most versatile machines ever invented, but that can also make them daunting to use. Help is at hand, however, if you use the internet to teach you how to get the computer to do what you want.
The best starting point is to use a search engine, such as Google, Yahoo, Bing etc. If you want to know how to change the email settings on your computer, then search for “change email settings” and then put the name of your email program at the end e.g. Outlook, Live Mail etc.
If that doesn’t work then there is a magic word that you can add to your search that almost always works, “Tutorial”. So in the example above you type “change email settings outlook tutorial” into the search box. When I tried this search I got several pages on tutorials explaining how to use each version of the Outlook email software.
Don’t forget that different people explain things in different ways, so if one tutorial doesn’t answer your questions, or you don’t fully understand it, then try another one. You will find one that suits you and your way of working.
Putting Tutorial in a search is a quick way to find out how to do nearly anything, and not just with computers, and it can save you time trying to find someone who can answer your questions.
