Welcome to Emacs!
Try M-x customize. If you don't know what `M-x' means, try the built-in
tutorial (it's somewhere in the menu and AFAIR on the splash screen -
I have both disabled;-)).
Also, you might want to look at the Emacs Wiki
http://www.emacswiki.org/, the Emacs.SE http://emacs.stackexchange.com/
and (last but not least) the built-in Emacs manual (C-h r).
Also - for starters - Mastering Emacs http://www.masteringemacs.org/
from Mickey Petersen and Sacha Chua's site http://sachachua.com are
