It just makes sense to know more about your Windows operating system. Keeping things organized in your CAT software is important but it’s also important to keep other files where you can easily find them. Learn to create folders to store your exhibits, invoices and anything business related. Don’t stop there, organize your personal files as well. I’ll help you decide how to utilize the START menu more efficiently and what should be pinned to the taskbar and what should be on your desktop or your System tray. Schedule your customized session today to know the full power of Windows.
