The Internet has become so popular that it's now difficult to get through an entire day without hearing it mentioned on TV, reading about it in the newspapers, or going online yourself. Unfortunately, there is no "Internet Users Manual." The Internet All-in-One Desk Reference For Dummies can fill that void, however, by providing one-stop, quick guidance for the tasks and tools you'll need to experience the best of the Internet.
This book is intended to be a reference for all the great things (and maybe a few not-so-great things) that you may need to know when you're browsing the Internet, writing e-mail, using newsgroups, creating your own Web pages, and so on. Rather than having to buy a book on each of these Internet-related topics, you can access them all conveniently packaged for you in one handy reference. This comprehensive book shows you how to get up and running fast so that you have more time to do the things that your really want to do.
The Internet All-in-One Desk Reference For Dummies is a big book made up of several smaller books – minibooks, so to speak. Within them, you'll find easy-to-follow information on the following topics and more:
- Internet safety, security, and troubleshooting
- Composing e-mail with Outlook Express and other readers
- Browsing the Web with Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator
- Chat and other online communication
- Using FTP to transfer files
- Getting started with Web publishing
- Creating Web pages with Microsoft FrontPage 2002
- Going places with AOL
- Shopping online
- Investing online
The back of the book contains a special Internet Directory section that points you toward some of the best sites that the Web has to offer. The sites listed here are organized by categories such as Internet and computer help, search engines and directories, news and information, research and education, sports and leisure, arts and entertainment, and fun and free stuff.
