If I had wanted to spend a lot of time, I probably could have figured out the differences between XP and Win7, but decided to get this book as a short-cut. I'm glad I did.
The differences are subtle, and can be annoying if you liked XP, but with this book I could decide quickly which new "features" I wanted and which to ignore.
Win7 does take a lot more of your computing power, so it's well worth selecting which things to install to keep your computer running at a reasonable speed.
If you're a complete newcomer to Windows, all the more reason to get this book to figure out how to configure your computer and how to navigate around the basic system.
Obtained the book after replace Windows XP with Windows 7 computer. The book shows several changes have
occurred and the book gives information on changes when compare Windows XP All-in-One For Dummies book with
corresponding book Windows 7 All-in-One For Dummies. As a result this book gives description of changes and what
to do. Also the two books tell the reader what operations have been removed or altered from the Windows XP. This book
has given me an insight into Windows 7 new software and may suggest I need to obtain a more advance book for Windows 7 operation. Windows 7 All-in-One For Dummies has been a teacher in more than one way.
