When it comes to Windows XP, where do you start? If you’re a beginner (or nearly so), check out Windows XP for Starters: The Missing Manual, by New York Times computer columnist David Pogue.
This is a stripped-down, just-the-basics version of Pogue’s superb -- but quite detailed -- Missing Manuals for Windows XP Pro and Home. We love those books, but many beginners find them, well, a bit too much. Hence, this book: easier access, larger print, no clutter, no “geeky” stuff about NTFS filesystems.
Stripped down, maybe, but it still covers everything most beginners want and need to do. You’ll learn how to find your way around, work with Windows XP’s built-in digital media (and other) software, get Web connected, and set up email. There’s even a quick, jargon-free guide to setting up your home network. Bill Camarda, from the February 2006 Read Only
