I am new to Monero but have read some documentation and have read that it is recommended to use the full node and so I installed it to my PC. The problem is the I got no idea how to send money or receive money, like what should I do in order to start a transaction etc.

To me, that is the core factors about these services so I do not know why I have not been able to find a place where I could read some instructions about this.

    Can you clarify if you have questions about how to use the command line wallet or the graphical user interface and also specify your operating system? Feb 26, 2017 at 0:48

you can use the full node by running the Monero GUI Wallet (however it's in Beta 2)

here's the link for windows https://downloads.getmonero.org/gui/monero-gui-win-x64-v0.10.3.1.zip


Full node has to run and completely update itself so you can use the wallet.
The wallet is a separate program but still dependent on the full node and its current blockchain.

There is a complete set of instructions for the command line wallet on the GetMonero site here--https://getmonero.org/knowledge-base/user-guides/monero-wallet-cli
