Windows 7: The Definitive Guide

With every new version of Windows there are often inexplicable changes from XP or Vista. Everything is there somewhere, but sometimes finding it is a challenge. It's often useful to have in the office at least one copy of a general guide that you or your IT people can refer to which could save hours of waiting for somebody to answer the phone at a help centre.

Windows 7: The Definitive Guide

Windows 7: The Definitive Guide covers Windows 7's features and enhancements in complete detail, along with specifics for configuring them.

Bestselling author and Windows expert William Stanek provides everything you need to manage and maintain Windows 7. You'll learn all of the features and enhancements in complete detail, along with specifics for configuring the operating system to put you in full control.

Stanek says, "Windows 7 is dramatically different from earlier versions of Windows from top to bottom...Other books [will] introduce and simplify Windows 7, or provide quick starts or step-by-step guides, or promise to teach even dummies how to use Windows 7. In this book, I don't pretend anyone is a dummy and I don't just teach you the steps you need to follow, I teach you how features work, why they work the way they work, and how to customize them to meet your needs."

He continues: "Regardless of whether you are a beginning, power user, or seasoned professional, many of the concepts in this book will be valuable to you. And you'll be able to apply them to your computer regardless of which edition of Windows 7 you are using."
