    You may want another book too.

    I have other books by this excellent author but this one leaves basic questions unanswered. Can I use a fluid on the rag when I clean the screen? How do I restore an icon to the favorites bar on the bottom of the screen after I inadvertantly deleted it? How long does it take to charge? I have two magazine subscriptions that will display their covers on Zinio but give me an error message when I try to read them because the Adobe reader is not compatible. This book has some interesting suggestions about telephoning, etc., but it is no substitute for trial and error learning.
