Course Overview Hi, I'm Mike Halsey. I'm a Microsoft MVP awardee and the author of many books and courses on Windows troubleshooting, and I'm excited to bring you this short course on how to provide troubleshooting support for Windows users. Knowing the technical details of how the Windows operating system works, or how it interacts with desktop and store apps, hardware and networks, is one thing, knowing how to translate this into quality support for end users is something else entirely. In this course we'll cover everything you need to know in order to successfully work with users of all technical abilities anywhere in the world, and also in your own workplace. We'll look at the tools that are available to help you provide support and the techniques necessary to help the end user learn so they don't need to keep coming back with the same or a similar problem. We'll cover every supported version of the Windows operating system, including Windows 7, Windows 8. 1, and Windows 10. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include how to work with users so they can help you effectively, how to help users to help themselves so they grow their skills and their confidence, and what tools and utilities you can use to provide support, both locally and remotely. By the end of this course, you'll be able to work with any PC user to troubleshoot and repair problems in Microsoft Windows. And I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to provide troubleshooting support for Windows users, on Pluralsight.
