Important note regarding Outlook in Windows 10:If there is an Outlook icon (gray or blue) in the notification area of the task bar, Outlook is not done closing and you should not log out/restart/shut down.

How to log in/out: Most campus users are comfortable with Ctrl-Alt-Delete to sign in each morning, but Ctrl-Alt-Delete can also be used to sign out of your computer. Press Ctrl-Alt-Delete and select "Sign Out." You can also restart or shut down the machine. UWGB IT recommends restarting the computer at the end of your work day.  An alternative method is to click on the Start menu to log out. Select the Windows icon (Start menu), then the user icon, and then "Sign out." See below:

How to find programs/applications: Navigate to the start menu and then search for a program in the search bar at the bottom of the screen. It may take a minute to search, especially if this is the first time you have used it or if you have recently installed the program.

Modifying the Start menu: Dragging icons from the jump list to the Start menu will pin them. The shortcuts will then show up on your Start menu. You can remove pinned items from your Start menu by right clicking on the pinned shortcut and selecting "unpin from Start."
