Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Now that you know what Windows XP can do “out of the box,” see what it can do with a little help. Windows XP Power Toolkit brings together detailed information on both Microsoft and third-party Windows XP tools you probably never knew existed -- tools that extend XP in powerful new ways, and fix annoying problems you thought you’d have to live with.

Got a program that won’t run under XP? Microsoft’s Application Compatibility Toolkit could solve the problem. Having trouble with networking or Internet connectivity? There are command line tools that can help.

Everything’s working splendidly? Check out Microsoft’s free PowerToys, Windows Messenger enhancements, and digital media tools (like Image Resizer, a super-quick way of shrinking too-big graphics files; and Microsoft Producer, which lets you create web presentations with PowerPoint 2002 and Windows Movie Maker).

Of course, many of the best add-ons for Windows XP don’t come from Microsoft. This book covers a wide array of third-party stuff, especially for graphics and digital media: CD burners, video editors, Dolby surround sound DVD decoders, and they’re all on the accompanying CD-ROM. It’s a true cornucopia of goodies for the Windows XP power user. Bill Camarda
