Windows 95 Bible

Overview

Most books on Windows 95 were released in August 1995, virtually simultaneously with the release of Windows 95 itself. In order to cash in on Microsoft's unprecedented worldwide advertising blitz, these books were rushed to press before the final version of Windows 95 was available even for testing. That means they were based on prerelease versions of the software rather than the real item. Not so with this book.

Overview

Most books on Windows 95 were released in August 1995, virtually simultaneously with the release of Windows 95 itself. In order to cash in on Microsoft's unprecedented worldwide advertising blitz, these books were rushed to press before the final version of Windows 95 was available even for testing. That means they were based on prerelease versions of the software rather than the real item. Not so with this book. Released in the Spring of 1996, The Windows 95 Bible describes the real world of Windows 95, based on months of using the actual software on a variety of hardware. Fred Davis tells the truth about Windows 95, not the official line.

Despite the brief flurry of publicity Windows 95 garnered when it first emerged, the operating system is technological leaps and bounds over Windows 3.1, and it's become the PC operating system. Fred Davis, former editor-in-chief of MacUser and now a Windows Magazine contributor, has written a well-organized guide to Win 95. From installation and interface design to telecommunications and multimedia, this is the book which answers the questions Windows help doesn't even begin to address, plus provides the insiders' tips which would take you years to learn. Organized into sections for beginner, intermediate and advanced users, The Windows 95 Bible covers topics like drag and drop file management, using Windows 95 programs to create four-color art, Windows Explorer and many more. The book's design is clear and accessible, with plenty of graphics representing actual Win 95 screen shots as well as useful sidebars with tips and warnings about possible risks for experienced Windows user. Want an even stronger testimonial? The New York Times wrote, "Toss out the other Windows books. This one is the best." Wow!
