Issue: What are the system requirements for Skillbuilding?

Resolution: Skillbuilding and Keyboarding system requirements are the same. Skillbuilding is a web-based application and will run on any operating system that supports Java. This include Windows and Mac operating systems.

*Operating System: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Mac OSX.

***Important*** Even if the operating system is non Windows based you must use Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2007 or 2010 to complete some lessons/exercises.

*Screen Resolution: 1024px x 768px or higher.
       Note: If you are running Windows 7 with a vertical resolution of 768, Autohide the taskbar for the best viewing experience.

*Browser: Internet Explorer 7 through 9, or Firefox 3.5+; skillbuilding may be typed if you use Safari, but not any jobs that require Word, such as document processing jobs and the Practice exercises in the Word Manual.
** Edge Browser - It is currently not an officially supported browser.  We are going through extensive testing on it. **

*Microsoft Word 2007 or Microsoft Word 2010.

Note: Windows 10 -  SIMnet and the keyboarding products are browser dependent, not operating system dependent.  So it will work on Windows 10 as long as a supported browser is used.
