Getting a new PC? Upgrading your existing PC? If you’re using Windows XP for the first time, you may find there’s more to learn than you expected. Fortunately, with Microsoft Windows XP Step-by-Step, Deluxe Edition, you’re just moments away from the step-by-step instructions you need. Use this full-color book and its practice files as a complete basic Windows XP course -- or as “just-in-time” training for whatever you need to do right now.
Designed and edited for easy reading, this book covers just about everything that’s new in Windows XP for typical home and small business users -- including security and other enhancements in Windows XP Service Pack 1. Want to send a fax? Burn a CD? Share a printer or an Internet connection? Set up Windows Messenger instant messaging? Watch a DVD? Switch quickly between users? Restore a damaged configuration? Share digital photos? It’s all covered here. A nice touch: a 50-page Quick Reference walking through 150 of the tasks you’re most likely to perform.
The accompanying CD-ROM includes Windows XP Service Pack 1 and Windows Media Player Bonus Pack (which would otherwise be formidable downloads for folks without broadband connections). It also contains two complete online books: the Microsoft Computer Dictionary, Fifth Edition (which lists for $29.99 in print) and Microsoft Encyclopedia of Networking, Second Edition (a whopping $79.99 value). If you have even the least need for computing and networking reference information, this is an amazing deal. Bill Camarda
