  1. Hello to all,

    In this path "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools" and in the Administrative Tools folder, there are some items, such as, Services. How can I be familiar with them? When should I use them? I want to completely understand them and their works. How to obtain the goal please?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hmm; IMO, the best way to learn is to focus on a TASK, not a menu choice on some window. Approaching learning using the latter method is typical of some school or certificate program and the students most frequently leave will little understanding of WHAT to use for a specific task - - and thus fail in their comprehension.

    I will enumerate (list) the primary entries in the Administrative Tools;
    • Component Services
    • Computer Management
    • Data Sources
    • Event Viewer
    • iSCSI Initiator
    • Local Security Poliy
    • Performance Monitor
    • Print Manager
    • Services
    • Task Scheduler
    • Windows Firewall
    • Windos Memory Diags
    • Windows PowerShell Modules
    Your homework is to FIRST learn what each of those are and what they control - -
    Use a google query something like "What is the windows services?"
    See the results of that query here.

    Thank you for your opinion. I think I should learn them one by one and some searches for each one.
