I’m helping my grandfather with his computer; it’s the first one he’s ever owned and so he looked to me for help. He has Windows 98 and I set him up with an MSN account last night. I also showed him around Microsoft Works and got him an e-mail address, plus showed him how search engines worked (we found the ship he served on at the tail end of WWII, how cool is that?).
I’m wondering, though, what I should definitely remember to show him about when I go back over there. I need to teach him about copy, cut, and paste, and how to change font sizes; can you think of any “small” things that would probably be useful for him to know in basic computer use?
