Loved this class. Mike explained info in an easy-to-
learn manner. Finally feel like I have some basic, beginning
computer knowledge from which to learn and grow.
Looking forward to future classes!

Hello Mike! My mom took two of your classes in
Midland and learned so much! She wears hearing devices,

Thank you for what you do!

Comments about Mike's Workshops
from Clinton Township Administrators
Michigan author and computer instructor Mike Wilson has designed a user-friendly 100-pg. book for Windows 10 users! Whether for home use or in the classroom setting, his large-print, step-by-step book will not bog you down with a lot of paragraph reading. Mike has "cut to the chase" by streamlining his book to no more than 5 steps (per page) to completing over 60 different computer related tasks! Each page (with few exceptions) introduces you to a new "senior-friendly" task you can learn on your laptop or desktop computer. Mike's unique professional book will lay open and allow you to access your computer with both hands!
Mike's reasonably priced book covers topics such as: Turning your computer on and off, learning Windows 10, locating software programs, basic e-mail and attachments; printing options, playing music and DVDs, using apps, copy and pasting, how to visit a website, editing changes, how to view the contents of a flash drive and CDs, using pictures as desktop backgrounds, saving a file, keyboard shortcuts, playing games, creating folders and so much more!
(Microsoft Windows 10 users only. The book
is not for tablets or Apple computers.)
