From the Publisher

If you're ready to make the transition from computer novice to educated PC user, you probably have one burning question: Where do I start? For thousands, the answer has been The Little PC Book, a friendly, jargon-free introduction to personal computing. Four editions and many software versions later, The Little PC Book, Windows XP Edition applies the same jargon-free approach to Windows XP, Microsoft's latest operating system. It's an easy-to-use, conversational guide to the fundamentals of setting up and working with your Windows XP PC.

Author Larry Magid covers the basics of PC hardware and software, navigating and using Windows XP, and connecting to and using the Internet. But the The Little PC Book isn't all work and no play; you'll also learn how to use your PC to listen to MP3 music files, and how to work with digital cameras and digital video. The Little PC Book, Windows XP Edition answers many common questions -- Who makes the best printers? How can I protect my computer from viruses? Where can I get free software? How do I back up my files? -- just like a computer-savvy friend, sitting at your side as you work.
