    Microsoft Windows 7-Visual Quick tips

If you want something well presented yet at the same time, a simple and comprehensive book just to aid in the migration from a former O.S. this is the one. Having said that, I may have painted to simple a picture, the book does cover more complicated facets of the O.S. without delving into to much "over the head" technical detail.
