Over the years of using computers, There are many issues that have risen in both software and hardware. One of the main issues that face human species is how to troubleshoot when it comes to issues. Because of the windows era " Bill Gates wanting to make an idiot-proof Operating System" and the fact that people do not want to read but want everyone to give them the answer, it has produced a lot of "I don't want to take the time to learn and solve the problem ideology"
I would like to know what troubleshooting steps do you do to resolve computer related issues, It's my hope we can put these steps together in a tutorial, that we can give to users to help them resolve some of the repeatable issues with any OS. What would you use to gain more insight into a problem, such as documentation and troubleshooting steps learned over the years.
Edit- What I was hoping to get was the thought process a person uses when they are troubleshooting computer issues. Where do you start when trying to figure out what's wrong and how to fix it.
example: Step one, look at logs to see if there is error messages
Step two, Search Forums and DDG for error message.
