In early reviews, geeks raved about Windows 7. But if you're an ordinary mortal, learning what this new system is all about will be challenging. Fear not: David Pogue's Windows 7: The Missing Manual comes to the rescue. Like its predecessors, this book illuminates its subject with reader-friendly insight, plenty of wit, and hardnosed objectivity for beginners as well as veteran PC users.

Windows 7 fixes many of Vista's most painful shortcomings. It's speedier, has fewer intrusive and nagging screens, and is more compatible with peripherals. Plus, Windows 7 introduces a slew of new features, including better organization tools, easier WiFi connections and home networking setup, and even touchscreen computing for those lucky enough to own the latest hardware.

With this book, you'll learn how to:

  • Navigate the desktop, including the fast and powerful search function
  • Take advantage of Window's apps and gadgets, and tap into 40 free programs
  • Breeze the Web with Internet Explorer 8, and learn the email, chat, and videoconferencing programs
  • Record TV and radio, display photos, play music, and record any of these to DVD using the Media Center
  • Use your printer, fax, laptop, tablet PC, or smartphone with Windows 7
  • Beef up your system and back up your files
  • Collaborate and share documents and other files by setting up a workgroup network

David Pogue is excellent in his field, combining simple explanations with a humorous style of writing. A "must have" if you want to customize your Win7 environment and exploit some hidden features. Well done David!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good solid introduction to Windows 7 Nov. 14 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm a little more technically oriented than the target market, but I found "Windows 7: The Missing Manual" provides a quite decent amount of technical background to make this book well worth reading. It worked (for me) as something to read when I had spare time rather than a reference, where I'd want a level of detail provided by Internet articles or, in several cases, "Windows 7 Annoyances".

By giving a good solid overview of Windows 7 features, it introduced me to a number of useful features I'd have otherwise skipped.
