    How I write a tutorial
    1st. How to get a screenshot
    1. Press PrtScn (just above <- Backspace) + Shift.
    2. Goto Paint (start->all programs->Accessories->Paint
    3. Edit->Paste
    4. File->Save Page As (name the page-something you will remember)
    2nd. Save screenshots of each item (so when you write about it you can show the appropriate screenshot)
    3rd. Show examples
    4th. Tell reasons to use the tutorial
    5th. Give FAQ (frequently asked questions).
    hope this helps

    You should thoroughly research your subject. Look for some information on the Internet or Google. Also, the more useful your tutorial is to the readers here the more likely it will be appreciated.

    This is a tutorial I just completed
    http://freetutorials.name/Reference1/Dell 4700 Cooling.html
    1. The use of references
    2. The use of pictures
    3. The need for the information (all computers, except gaming computers need extra cooling)
    4. Instructions for each step
    I would appreciate you checking it and listing how to improve it.
    The subject is: How to write a tutorial
    Thank You

    2. Did I use references appropriately ?
    3. Are the pictures enough and appropriate to understand the subject ?
    4. Is the text understandable ?
    5. Is there enough information to show the need for computer cooling ?
    6. Are you confident enough to do the project ?
    Any suggestions to improve the article or tutorial.

    If possible you can also add video tutorials and as videos are easy to understand. People prefer to learn using videos.

    Here are several tutorials on how to replace the CPU cooler. Reason for several is
    different mountings. The tutorials are step by step with pictures. Later I will do
    one for my computer, mine is older but the procedure is the same.

    I think the more examples are analysed in the tutorials, the more easily the students understand! ;);)
    Anyways, thank you for sharing. I will use it in my tutorials for making it interesting!:sneaky::love::love:
