Format: Paperback
We had Windows XP for years and just upgraded to Windows 7. Having no knowledge of the program and little help from the store, we needed this book. It is easy to understand and follow. The book recommends reading only the parts you need rather than trying to study the book and that works great. When you need something, look it up, learn what you have to and continue on. Not a long process. We recommend this as a general guide for anyone using windows 7....very helpful for beginners!

Following Dummies productions for Windows 2000 and Works 2000, a preliminary read of Windows 7 for Dummies shows that the Dummies treatment as a down-to earth "bible" and great manual is, once again tops.

Format: Paperback
Some changes in Windows 7, like no mail, leave us in the dark. This book explains how to deal with some shortcomings of the new system, but not all. More detail is needed. General answers show you where to look but don't take you all the way through.

Any disappointment I have with the book is entirely my own fault. I thought it would give me instructions on things like" How to insert pictures", "How to set margins", etc. But, nevertheless, I am glad that I bought your book. Thanks for asking. Dianne
