if you follow advice of firefox and google,

try this google link for 'advanced linux searching';

  http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en&output=linux&restrict=linux

in bar labeled 'this exact wording or phrase:', enter;

   how+to+use+fedora

which will give you 34 links, not all of which will give you answer to
you post, but will get you started.


a problem with your question is that you are wanting to limit yourself
and family to fedora.

*fedora is linux*. an _advanced_, _bleeding_edge_ form of *linux*.

therefore you limit your findings when you specify fedora.

because you and family are experienced as 'ms bs os' users, you should
actually be wanting to learn how to use *linux*.

to do this, change above search entry to;

   how+to+use+linux

which will give you about 534,000 links, not all of which will give you an
exact answer to you post, but will give you more links to what you need and
you can use fedora os to apply this information.

you can also have a look at links to right of page, 'Sponsored Links'.
also, note my sig. ;)


long story short, there is *no one place* to go to learn linux. be it
fedora or any of the other distributions.

to learn it, you are going to have to read.

no way around it, other than to click on what ever looks interesting
and hope that you do not break something.

most if not all programs have in their 'menu bar' an icon that says
'help'. that helps you with that program.

you will also find a 'help' for what ever desktop you use among your
task bar menus.


hth. [hope this helps]
