Why do I offer downloads of the lessons?

To keep from charging for web access to the lessons! The site has gotten more popular than my pocketbook can afford!  All products have the same content as the live web site. It's just more convenient to have it all on your own computer. Plus, the download versions do not show ads.

Payment Methods

  • Secure online ordering with Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, or PayPal
  • By check or money order.
  • Purchase orders are accepted throught the normal order form but shipment of special order discs will wait on payment.

Download

Time Allowed: A download will be active for only 7 days or a limited number of attempts, whichever comes first!! The number of attempts depends on several factors but ranges between 4 and 14. Too many attempts from different computers will also de-activate the download.

I can reset the downloads if you run out of attempts. Email me Mail to: and include your order number and a description of what happened. Sometimes the problem is not with the download itself.

You can purchase Online File Backup Protection for a year for $3.95 on the payment page, which guarantees that you can download again in that time, even if the original product is no longer offered.

8 June 2018: Online version of Working with Windows 10 has been updated to the April 2018 update. The download and disc versions have been synchronized and are available for purchase.

24 September 2018: All disc products have been discontinued. I lost my vendor for burning these. It's too complex to sign-up with another vendor for the low number of orders. Sad smiley

License to copy Disc/Download for students:

This is a license for a teacher/institution to burn copies of the disc copy for their students. You can charge your students only enough to cover the license ($5 each copy) and the actual cost to make the copy (the media). Obviously you must also order a download to have something to copy.

As soon as the order is processed, you will get an email certifying your license. It's not suitable for framing, but it should be good enough for oversight committees!

Other Purchase Info

Discs in bulk:

Other purchases:
If you need something besides the choices in the table above, email me with the details of what you want and I will reply with specific directions and pricing.

Purchase orders: I can do a purchase order but discs ship only after payment has processed.

Version History Icon: New page

What's New lists site changes and version releases. There is usually some delay before changes on the live site are available in the download and on disc to allow for error reports and the complex process of removing the ads and other setup issues. The download and disc versions are updated after major changes but not after minor corrections and updates.

Languages: To get the same lessons in both English and Spanish requires two separate orders.

Teachers/instructors: For a free license to use my materials with your students, please read the Permissions page and complete the Permissions Form. This will get you into my database. This is needed whether or not you purchase a download or disc.
