Review:

One of the most popular books in the best-selling Dummies line, Windows 95 for Dummies, Second Edition, introduces rank neophytes to personal computing via Windows 95. The book opens with explanations of the most basic computing conventions: how to use the mouse, what the Shift key does, and why you shouldn't leave floppy disks in the sun. It also explains the concept of computer files and tells the reader in a light but competent tone what it means to open, close, move, and delete files. Then, Windows 95 for Dummies gets into the specifics of Windows 95. The book explains the Start button, the Taskbar, the Desktop, and the most important Windows 95 icons. All Windows 95 accessories get full treatment--there's even an introduction to Web surfing with Microsoft Internet Explorer. Finally, it wraps up with lots of troubleshooting help and some hints on making Windows 95 work faster.
