  1. exiting a window, panel, etc.


    I took an unused computer with an earlier version of windows 10 and was starting & registering it. it said to major update it, which I did.


    I have been exploring it to become familiar with it. info becomes available in panels, but these don't seem to have the usual button in the upper (R) corner to minimize/exit that panel. eventually I get away, not sure how, and don't know how to revisit that info except by accidentally stumbling into it again.


    where do I find some sort of tutorial for moving around in Win 10 for the purpose of setting my preferences, etc. ?

    I have used earlier versions of Win10 on other computers, and I am generally comfortable with accessing online info, but I am feeling very confused this time around.


    complicating factor: I had a rather severe concussion and have hardly used a computer for 2+ years, d/t mental confusion & difficulty focussing effectively. I have gradually made a significant degree of recovery to the point that I am again able to tackle mental tasks, but not yet with my former agility. So, in effect, I am tackling this situation like a rather clueless newbie, in spite of many years of past computer experience.

    I think I need to approach tis challenge as if I were a newbie. My most effective learning style is through reading, whether books, magazines, or online sources. so much has changed in technology in the past few years that I hardly know where to start. We have a pretty good public library here in Winnipeg, and of course there is the internet for online resources. With all these resources available, I hardly know where to start.

    any suggestions as to where to start? I still remember all the basics, but stuff from the last few years, it's pretty sketchy in my head and I need to review/relearn, especially new stuff in win 10.


    thankyou.

    :)
