PLEASANTON, Calif., Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Individual Software, the leading provider of computer training software, announces the release of Professor Teaches® Microsoft Windows 8. This software provides interactive tutorials for fast and easy learning of the new Microsoft operating system. According to Individual Software Author of Professor Teaches Windows 8 Training, Mark Krames, "This simplified and streamlined interface offers unique and innovative features, but will create a level of complexity for the new and experienced user. They will need training to learn how to use Windows 8 and achieve a level of familiarity and comfort with the new operating system and app-style interface."
Unlike Windows 7, Windows 8 is not a version update but an entirely new operating system with a completely different user interface. The familiar Start Menu has been removed, and replaced with a Start Screen of apps. These apps appear on the Start Screen as tiles. According to Krames, "The core of what you do and want is still there, plus exciting new features, but users will have to learn how to access and share their information and applications."
"The paradigm shift of this new operating system is significant and the learning curve will be larger than with past Windows systems," comments Jo-L Hendrickson, President and CEO of Individual Software. "Professor Teaches Windows 8 software provides a way for users to quickly learn the new features of Windows 8 and stay current with the latest technology which will connect users with all of their Windows 8 devices."
