A couple of headings "How to use TeXworks" and "What
you need to get started" each followed by a short list
of one-line items before the lots of text, and each
being a link into the text, should cater for that
without need for graphics. Screenshots of GUIs are so
uninformative anyway -- at least usually due to being
too small, and if they're large they disturb the text.

/bpj -- father of kids who still can read the whole set
of Harry Potter books, unillustrated, with the right
motivation, thankfully!
