Welcome to the Overview
Qwerty computer tutorials aims to show you as much as possible about computers, software and related computer and networking equipment for free.
Computing is a vast subject and we couldn't possibly show you everything there is to know about computing (we'll try!) although we will give you a good understanding in theory with our computer tutorials as much as we can.
The idea of this overview page is to explain some of the simple ways our website is designed to work. If we have done our job designing this site correctly then it should be easy to navigate and find what you want anyway.
What does this site offer?
Qwerty computer tutorials has computer tutorials for Microsoft Windows XP, WIndows Vista, Windows 7, Microsoft Office, general networking, Microsoft Server family operating systems and much more for the future.
Many of the computer tutorials are designed to guide you through completing common tasks in Windows or the chosen topic. We will be offering troubleshooting tutorials and solutions to errors and faults soon.
Our aim is for this website to become one of the top sources for information one day. We are small at the minute, grow with us.
The tutorials on this site are and will always be completely free to view and use to anybody visiting the site, however we do have a member area which has extra features and is also free to signup and use.

Using the tutorials
Using the tutorials will be fairly easy for most people. They are structured with instructions in text and accompanied by a picture for each step required.
Using the menus on the left hand side of the website you can browse to the relevant section under a heading such as 'software tutorials'. As you can see, under software tutorials there are the sub categories such as 'Windows XP' or 'Office 2003' which you can click on.
When you click on the topic such as 'Windows XP' you will be presented with all the tutorials for that topic, divided into sections appropriately. You can see an example of how this list looks below.
You will see the first option is the 'software tour'. This just means that it starts at the top of the listed tutorials and proceeds to the next one in sequence.
You can click the tutorial that you want to see. When the tutorial loads there are a couple of items to make you aware of.
If you look at the screenshot below you will see the numbered sections. See the list below.
- Tutorial Topic - This part tells you the name of the tutorial.
- PDF Download link - This is a PDF version of the tutorial that you are viewing. It is available to signup members only. Everybody can access the tutorials via the web pages
- Tutorial Notes - These notes just highlight any information that may be applicable to the whole tutorial.
Just read the tutorial from top to bottom, following the instructions. At the bottom of the tutorial you will find three links as pictured below.
The first link is the next tutorial in sequence of the 'Software Tour' which basically just goes through the tutorials one at a time.
If you prefer you can link back to the tutorial list that you selected from initially and choose a different tutorial.
The third link is the 'Download PDF version' again which gives signed up members another opportunity to download the tutorial.
