I think we can all relate to that at some time or another

Have patience, we were all learners once.

Instead of that sort of reaction, you should help the person.......

I can never find that 'Any Key' on my keyboard so I usually press the 'Enter' key.;)

I agree, but some people just never seem to listen....

I was once helping someone and the screen said 'press any key to continue'. They said it wouldn't work and I could hear them pressing a key over the phone.

I drove over to see what was wrong. They were pressing the shift key.

Who noticed that the user is a leftie? Not that it makes a difference. Poker face still feels rage.

I can understand Pcteks point, everyone needs learning time, its after giving a specific instruction eg, press enter, it's faster and the person still clicks on everything that drives me mad.
in some cases its just what they are used to but in most other cases the users are arrogant and deliberately try to defy all common sense.

Send Poker Face on an anger management course.

The learner would be better off going on a computer course at the local polytech where tutors do not get angry.

Funny clip! Went through that while showing a mate setting up, actually got asked "so how do I get to google?" while actually having google up on the screen with its big ass google logo starting right at her.

Oh yeah, memories of folk entering data into one field, then moving the mouse to click into the next field... and repeating the process for all 20 or so fields on the page.

Really frustrating when Enter or Tab or arrow keys will do the same navigation within the blink of an eye.
A learning aid might be to actually disable the mouse and to force people to learn new techniques on the keyboard.

I was working on a compujter the other day that had the homepage set to a bing search for google. I don't know how they managed to set that as their homepage without knowing how to set it to Google when they finally got to google.

They probably installed some program from Microsoft that did it for them
