Continue practicing and learning new skills with this exercise using the Windows Calculator.
You will use right clicking, the keyboard, and application Help in this exercise about the Windows Calculator.
|What you will do:|| Search for a program to open it.
Use Search to find Help for an application.
Start with: Desktop with Taskbar showing
Click on Calculator - Trusted Windows Store app.
The app opens to the calculator style that was open last. The default style is Standard.
Whoops! There is no square root key on your keyboard. Let's search for help about Calculator to find a keyboard shortcut for this command.
In the Search box on the Taskbar, start typing calculator keyboard shortcut.
Your results may be different from the illustration.
In the results, click on the result 'calculator keyboard shortcut - See web results'.
Your Edge browser opens to Bing results for these keywords.
Open a MIcrosoft page that might show us the keyboard shortcuts for Calculator.If there is not one from Microsoft, use another result. There are several pages that should still be around to help you out.
Whew! Finally you'll see what key does the same thing as the key on the calculator.
Don't close the browser window.
Repeat the problems with only the keypad keys on the right on your keyboard,
if you have them. Laptop keyboards do not usually have a numeric keypad.
(Be sure that NumLock is on. There should be a light on your keyboard that turns on and off as you press the NumLock key on the keypad.)
You will need to use the same shortcut again for square root.
Which way is easiest for you? Pointing device, numbers row, keypad?
Don't close Calculator yet if you are going to continue with the exercises. You are building up a set of open windows for later.
