including graphic if possible)
Working through the tutorial “How do I change the date
and/or time?” was very simple and straightforward. The
tutorial explains every feature on the date & time
settings and provides easy access directions.

The tutorial says to Highlight ‘Settings’ in the 2nd step,
but you only need to do this if you’re using the Classic
Theme for Windows XP. This could become unclear for a
beginner.

The graphics included in the tutorial were very
supportive of what was going on.
