About the Author

Katherine Murray has been writing about technology since before Microsoft Windows--a ny Microsoft Windows--even existed. She’s worked with every consumer version of Windows that has ever been made, marveling with the masses at Windows 3.1, swearing at Windows ME, enjoying Windows XP, and threatening to throw her computer off the roof, thanks to Windows Vista. Now with Windows 7, she feels we have arrived at a sleek, smart, reasonably lightweight operating system that does pretty much what most users need it to do. She started writing about technology 24 years ago and still enjoys it, specializing in Microsoft Office technologies and the fascinating ways in which we stay in touch with each other through cloud technology, blogging, social media, and more. You’ll find Katherine’s blog, BlogOffice, at In addition to writing books, she writes regularly for CNET’s TechRepublic and Windows Secrets.

3.0 out of 5 stars Forced to change April 18 2014

Had to change to Windows 7 at work from XP for security reasons. I'm the IT department and gave up on Windows machines at home nearly 10 years ago so I've got to be able to figure out the answers to everyone's questions on the fly. All Windows after XP is new to me so this helps with the learning curve.
