Summary
  • Guides beginning users through basic PC operations in Microsoft Windows, demonstrating such tasks as personalising Windows 8, connecting to the Internet, using social networks, working with apps, playing music, and performing routine maintenance
  • Covers everything today's beginners and near-beginners need to know: not just about Windows, but also about software, hardware, and the Internet. Thoroughly updated, covers today's user experience - with Windows 8, Internet Explorer 8, and today's hottest online tools, from craigslist and Facebook to Twitter, Wikipedia, and Google Docs. The latest edition of Absolute Beginner's Guide to Computer Basics is updated with coverage of Windows 8, which introduces the totally new Metro user interface. Given Metro's genesis as a mobile interface, and Microsoft's push towards a new breed of touchscreen computing devices, this new edition will include more hardware coverage than previous editions. In addition, this book will cover Windows 8's new Metro interface in depth, as well as feature increased coverage of social networking and cloud computing applications
