How to use Windows 10 on Student PCs

Log off (it's not obvious!)

  • Right-click on the Windows start icon (bottom left corner of the screen)
  • Select Shut down or sign out
  • Then Sign out (please don't choose Shut down as this delays the next user).

The first time you log in

It might take 5 minutes as the PC loads your preferences. It remembers them next time so future logins should be under a minute.

Project the screen

  1. Hold down the Windows key (bottom left on the keyboard, with a flag on it) and press the P key.
  2. Click Duplicate.

Find software

To browse the software on the PC, click the Windows start icon, then All apps. Or use the search box next to the Start menu (labelled ‘I’m Cortana‘).

If you don't find what you need try searching for it - sometimes not all software shows in the All apps list. More about software at Kent

Find your files, including the USB drive

  1. Click the Start icon.
  2. Click File Explorer.
