Starting from scratch using windows OS

Hi,
My boss asked me to learn bugzilla.
Watched many YouTube videos but found most of them talking about installing and nothing found about real examples for tracking real bugs.
I do not know any programming knowledge except very few.
I want to learn the right way and want to master very aspect of the bugzilla.
Please recommend for the right starting point to continue in my own.
So I want to learn BugZilla inside out.
Note: I am a self learner.
Thanks
MG

Start with reading the docs focussed on usage:

https://bugzilla.readthedocs.io/en/5.0/using/index.html

Afterwards prefer the official docs about how to install over
arbitrary YouTube-videos:

https://bugzilla.readthedocs.io/en/5.0/installing/index.html

> I do not know any programming knowledge except very few.

You don't need to have to unless you want to customize Bugzilla, which
you should avoid even with good programming language. Even though
Bugzilla provides official ways for customizations, those always mean
you need to maintain them on your own, need to adopt them to newer
versions of Bugzilla, making updates and upgrades more difficult etc.
Try to only use whats provided out of the box.

That sounds unnecessary overblown to me: 1. there's almost never "the
right way" for anything, just things that might make sense for you as
well. Which is most likely simply following the official user guide.

2. mastering every aspect of a complex software like Bugzilla ist most
likely as well never necessary. Install it, use from it what you need
and don't care about anything else. Take a more in depth look at
things when you actually need them or run into problems, everything
else is a waste of your time. Most software simply develops too
quickly to always master it in every aspect.

The official docs of course:
