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.

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.

This is not a book to read from cover to cover; it is a reference book. As such I have, so far, found things that are helpful to me as a recent purchaser of a new PC with Windows 7 installed. However, I have the feeling that in some things it seems out-dated as I can not quite relate to my program. This copy has a copyright date of 2009. Could it be that, at 5 years old, there were many updates that were not addressed, and thus I find it a bit difficult to find the information I am requiring. When I had Windows 98, and then Windows XP, I bought Andy Rathbone's books and found the writing easy to follow.

Judgeing the topics in the index and some article out of curiosity I would say that it will be very usefull when I have needs to check up in the future. I am convinced that I will be using Windows 7 for some time. I have no interest in going to Windows 8, I am with the users that have continued to use Windows 7. The fact that HP has started making Windows available as an option again says a lot.

my brother did not update my computer to windows 7, until 7 months after I bought this book
an omission of the book is, not mentioning the loss of overall thumb-nail views in the picture folders
wisely, Rathbone did not try to keep updated on the sweeping changes continuing on the internet
my last Rathbone book before this was windows 98 for dummies

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
