Make a short tutorial showing someone who is not very familiar with computers or asks you to do something for them all the time because they don't know how. It doesn't have to be for your mom, it can be for grandpa, sister, etc. This example is pretty long (I didn't make it, I just found it), but it doesn't need to be this long, and it can be showing how to do one thing and not every thing.
