Finding the Windows 10 Get Started App - TUTORIAL -

If you have recently upgraded to Windows 10 (disclosure: I am part of the Microsoft Blogger team and receive perks as such but opinions are completely my own) I have a great resource for you to learn a little more about the new operating system and the new browser, Microsoft Edge. It is built right into the system for you even. I stumbled across this the other day and decided to check it out and I was very impressed.

The app is called “Get Started”. To launch it, go to the new Start button, I have that circled in yellow at the bottom left of the image. Click that to launch the menu which will look somewhat like the image above. Now you may find Get Started already pinned on your menu like it is on my image above (the top yellow circle), but if not you can find it by clicking on All apps (circled in green above). Once the list opens you can scroll to the “G” section or click on any letter to bring up alphabet and then click “G”. There you will find it listed, shown below. Click on it to open the app.

Once the app opens there will be a video on the right and a menu of sections of the left. My suggestion is to watch all 4 of the videos to get started. They are all pretty short but incredibly informative. Even if you are pretty geeky like me you will learn a few things, I promise! Just click the play arrow in the center of the screen – I pointed to it with a big yellow arrow in the image below. After the first video finishes it will queue up the next for you or you can use the menu at the top center of the screen to go to any of the 4 videos you want.

Again, these are really well done videos and they will help you get the most out of Windows 10. Once you watch the videos you can click on the other menu items on the left of the screen to explore all the other areas. I would suggest exploring Cortana and getting her all set up, she is amazing!

Did you watch the videos? Tell me something you learned. Was this post helpful for you?
