4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed and Insightful Aug. 3 2011
By Andrea's ipad - Published on
In order to write such a detailed and insightful book, the authors definitely must know the ins and outs of Windows 7. This book goes through everything you have ever wanted to know about the operating system, and then includes details you thought you already knew about, but there is more to learn. Chapter Six and Seven are devoted to using Internet Explorer 9. The interface of this version is different than previous versions and the authors do a terrific job explaining each feature.
What surprised me most about this book is seeing a chapter devoted to Using Pen, Touch, and Voice Input devices based on the type of hardware installed. Included are both touch-enabled as well as tablets. Although the technology might just start to be taking over, instructions to these are important as we start to use the new technologies available.
The content of this book is what you would find in your normal computer book. The text is detailed, albeit stuffy. Few might take the time to read this book from cover to cover, but definitely keep this book on your shelf as a reference guide.

3.0 out of 5 stars Windows 7 Inside Out, Deluxe Edition Aug. 22 2011
By W. H. Niehoff - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a reference during my migration from Windows Vista to Windows 7.

It qualifies as a super-tome. The only book in our house that is fatter is the Oxford Dictionary. Unfortunately, its construction is not up to supporting the book's size. After about a month of infrequent use, it shows signs of falling apart.

More importantly, it has not been particularly helpful to me. Frankly, it has on no occasion had the answer to a problem I've experienced with Windows 7. For example, it offers too little information on sharing printers on a LAN among various versions of Windows. I've found the web and experiment to be much more useful.

This was probably the last I/O edition that I will buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Opposing View April 5 2012
By My Opinion - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It is understandable that the bulk of this book describes features of the product.However it was my desire to read more of the voices of authors on their opinions and what they hear from the world at large after 2 years of working with Windows 7.

Writers express throughout the book the opinion of Microsoft Product Team but it will greatly add to the reputation of authors and Windows as a product if they voice the opposing views, if common experience does not match the Developers intentions or expectations.
For example, Windows 7 is promoting the concept of libraries, however to-date I do not see any benefit of using those. Let's take Picture Library: I still need to organize my files into folders when I am writing them to disk and in addition any specialized programs, such as Adobe Lightroom imposes its own organization tools. Placing photo files into a library just makes for an extra step for me.
I would like to hear from experts: am I missing something? Or is my experience typical among Windows 7 users.

The volume of this book is staggering 1300+ pages however, when you read it, it is not clear who is the target audience. If it is truly Intermediate/Advanced why do they need to devote 3 paragraphs to description of how to Empty Recycle Bin? Nothing has changed about this feature since Windows 95!
I really appreciate Amazon's liberal return policy and I do not hesitate to return books that do not meet my expectation. I plan to keep this book around, as I feel it does have valuable information to read and study.

I give this book solid 3 stars
Good: it is a comprehensive treatise on Windows 7 and, given time and effort anyone can learn some valuable lessons from this book.
Bad: It would be great if someone edited this book down to 650 pages so that learning, I mentioned above, would not take as much time and effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two points to be aware of Sept. 26 2013
By Michael Everett - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this along with a Dummies Guide because I'm switching back to Windows after 3 unpleasant years with Apple. I don't get my Windows machine till Saturday and I've only skimmed the book so it's a little soon to give a comprehensive review of the content, other than saying it's written in an extremely clear manner and covers all the extras you get with the Home Premium edition. The two things you should be aware of follow:

1) One reviewer mentioned what an advantage it is to have the hard cover copy as opposed to the soft cover and I entirely agree. With 1360 pages, this volume needs a hefty binding both to keep it tight and together, and maybe more important the hard cover makes it possible to open the book to any page and it will lay flat and remain open to that page till you change it. But there's more. The paperback version costs $11 more, contains 360 pages less, and was published in 2009 -- two years before the hard cover version.

2) When you get the hard cover version and don't find the promised CD the book is supposed to ship with, don't panic. I was just beginning to request the CD from Amazon when I took one final look. The CD is hiding in a paper cover attached to the binding in the index section.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wash Your Windows! Nov. 4 2011
By TechnoAmazonian - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is (as typical) arguably the best Windows-7 reference book available, and includes the updates for Internet Explorer 9, and the electronic version of the book on CD. The hardback is recommended as, for such a thick book, it will last longer and fan-open better and withstand heavy use. However, for some reason, various elements were left out from the previous "XP inside out" book (I skipped-over Vista... didn't you?), so keep your XP book if you still have it. For example, the BIOS settings definitions for energy savings (S1, S3, etc.) have been removed. Many people will say you can just look-up this data on the internet - but if you only have one PC and it is "sick" or you are building one from scratch, you still need the good-old hardcopy books and these have helped me many times. A good reference for beginners to experts, leaning toward the more knowledgeable user who would rather look it up than memorize everything. Most magazine "master your PC" articles are mearly excerpts from books like these. Excellent and recommended - as always esp. at Amazon's prices!
