Customer Question

JA: Just to clarify, what's the exact model of your computer? And what operating system are you running?
Customer: It is a HP Spectre. I'm not sure about operating system. How do I find that? Not that IT savy.
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: Don't think so. Just received the computer a week or so ago. Just learning how to use it.
JA: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Don't think so. I have a gmail mail act. Want to sign onto Cortana, but it wants me to sign onto Microsoft. Trying to create acct but it doesn't like my email address.
