    Windows 7 Plain & Simple

    The title says it all. I had previously purchased Vista Plain & Simple and was so pleased with it, that when I upgraded to Windows 7 I went out and bought Windows 7 Plain & Simple. I have not had a question or problem that this book has not answered for me. I would highly recommend it.

    It's just plain and simple

    I've found the plain & simple series of books to be very helpful over the years and upgrades. Windows 7 is no exception.

    Like that it wasn't meant to be read cover to cover. Good table of content for finding the area you need.

    This book is helpful for computer novice

    I found the color-coded pictures and graphs very simple to follow. The table of contents was also very thorough - making it easy to look up a solution to a problem.
