With Microsoft Windows Me, Microsoft seeks to hide more of Windows' plumbing than ever -- and, for sophisticated users, that can actually make it harder to access Windows Me's full power. But the cat's out of the bag. Brian Livingston and Davis Straub, who've made a career out of revealing Windows' hidden capabilities, have done it again. Microsoft Windows Me Secrets, all 1,450+ pages of it, is about one thing: really making Windows Me... yours.
You'll learn more about customizing the Windows desktop than you ever imagined possible. Ever accidentally move your Taskbar and couldn't move it back? You'll learn how. Want to create shortcuts to a specific web page? It's here. Want to rename dozens of files at once? Livingston & Straub point you to a great freeware utility.
The goodies are endless. Want to download entire web sites to read later? Install Windows Me on an ancient 486SX system that the installer would normally reject as too slow? Set up automatic email replies in Outlook Express? Transfer megabytes of files between Windows systems without building a network? Get NetMeeting videoconferencing working? It's all here -- and we've just scratched the surface. (Bill Camarda)
