You didn’t know Windows could do all this. Hey, nobody told you. But David Pogue and his colleagues will. Sure, this book’s a great, fast source for answers on the basics of running and maintaining Windows XP Professional. But it also covers cool features few Windows users use, because they’re hardly ever explained this well.
For example: how to create your own Outlook Express spam filter; why you might want to install a “fake” printer; how to collaborate on the same document across the Internet; how to encrypt your files (and what encryption won’t protect). That, and stuff like finding free anti-spyware software and creating “drop box” folders others can use to send you files for review. And loads of maintenance help: from changing drive letters to troubleshooting munged SP2 installations. Measured on pure usefulness, this one’s hard to beat.
