From the Publisher:
Beta testers of Windows 7 are singing its praises, but when it comes time for ordinary mortals to learn this new system, Microsoft offers little help. David Pogue's Windows 7: The Missing Manual comes to the rescue. Like its predecessors, this book illuminates its subject with technical insight, plenty of wit, and hardnosed objectivity for beginners, veteran standalone PC users, and those who know their way around a network.
Those who have seen Windows 7 applaud the way it fixes some of Vista's most painful shortcomings. The latest Microsoft OS is speedier, has fewer intrusive and nagging screens, and is generally much more compatible with peripherals. Plus, Windows 7 introduces a slew of new features, including fast-access searching and better organization tools, easier WiFi connections and home networking setup, and even touchscreen computing for those lucky enough to own the latest hardware
This jargon-free Missing Manual explains Windows 7 features so clearly -- revealing which work well and which don't -- that it should come in the box with this OS.
