  • Take advantage of Window's apps and gadgets, and tap into 40 free programs
  • Breeze the Web with Internet Explorer 8, and learn the email, chat, and videoconferencing programs

From the Back Cover:

Early reports on Windows 7 are encouraging: Those who've seen it applaud the way it fixes some of Vista's most painful shortcomings. It's speedier, has fewer intrusive and nagging screens, and is generally much more compatible with peripherals. Plus, Microsoft has introduced a slew of new features, including things like fast-access searching and better organization tools, easier WiFi connections and home networking setup, and even touchscreen computing for those lucky enough to own the latest hardware. The biggest downside? Learning how to navigate through all this new territory, starting with which of the four versions of Windows 7 you have (Starter, Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate). Thankfully, Windows 7: The Missing Manual will be there to help--a single book that offers coverage of all four versions. Like its predecessors, this book from New York Times columnist, bestselling author, and Missing Manuals creator David Pogue illuminates its subject with technical insight, plenty of wit, and hardnosed objectivity for beginners, veteran standalone PC users, and those who know their way around a network. This jargon-free book explains Windows 7 features so clearly -- revealing which work well and which don't - that it should have been in the box in the first place.

About the Author:
