As Andy Rathbone puts it, "Windows XP leaps onto the screen with a snappy beat and overly excited videos. But how do you make the darn thing do something useful?" With Rathbone's Windows XP for Dummies, that's how. Rathbone's ...For Dummies books have civilized Windows for millions of users by now, and this one's no exception.
In classic ...For Dummies style, Rathbone eschews the complex stuff, starting with friendly, step-by-step explanations of "all the Windows XP stuff that everybody thinks that you already know." You'll learn what's new about XP Home Edition, master its new interface, then learn how to use the bushelful of applications that come with it -- especially its web and media apps. (And blessedly, Rathbone shows you how to turn off the Microsoft advertising that clutters XP.)
Best of all, you can turn to Windows XP for Dummies for solutions to many Windows XP problems -- from tiny, annoying problems like finding a missing taskbar to full-fledged system restore after XP goes completely bonkers. If you don't need this book, chances are you know someone who does. (Bill Camarda)
