    Difficult to use

    I was disappointed with this purchase. I've always liked the Teach Yourself Visually books, but this one is difficult to use. It is focused on the touch screen, but I want to use the mouse and keyboard. I feel I'm left to "figure it out" myself. That's not what I bought the book for.
