Publisher Comments:

Whether you're a beginner, power user, or seasoned professional, Windows Vista: The Definitive Guide has everything you need to customize the operating system, master your digital media, manage your data, and maintain your computer — regardless of which Windows Vista edition you're using.

Why this book and not some other resource? Bestselling author and Windows expert William Stanek doesn't just teach you the steps you need to follow, he also tells you how features work, why they work, and how you can customize them to meet your needs. You'll learn how to squeeze out every last bit of power out of Windows Vista, and how to make the most out of its features and programs, including how to:

  • Set up, customize and tune Windows Vista - Optimize its appearance and performance; install, configure and maintain software; customize your hardware; and install printers, scanners and faxes
  • Manage your files - Search your computer more efficiently; secure your files and data; share and collaborate; and get the most out of accessories such as the Mobility Center
  • Master your digital media - Create media libraries with Media Player; manage digital pictures and videos with Photo Gallery; make DVDs with DVD Maker; and create movies with Movie Maker
  • Get connected and start networking - Set up a home or small-office network; learn to use Windows Mail, Calendar, and Meeting Space; conquer Internet Explorer 7; and master on-the-go networking
  • Protect your computer - Keep your family safe while on the Internet; set up parental controls and content ratings; navigate the computer security maze; configure Windows Vista's security features
  • Manage and support Windows Vista systems - Deal with user accounts, disks and drives; handle routine maintenance and troubleshooting; and resolve advanced support and recovery issues
  • Learn advanced tips & techniques - Manage the Windows boot environment, explore Group Policy, discover keyboard shortcuts, and much more

Book News Annotation:

Rather than focusing on a particular user level and presenting a cookbook approach, Stanek, a veteran programmer/author of some 60 computer books, explains how the features of the new Microsoft Vista operating system work and how to make the most of them. He covers basic and advanced features, from setting up and customizing to using the accessories that come with Vista (e.g., Speech Recognition, Sticky Notes) and navigating policy changes for Vista and the Explorer 7 Web browser. The book includes desktop tips and tricks, and free trial access to the online edition. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Everything you need to deploy, manage and maintain Windows Vista is right here. This guide offers business professionals and power users complete details on all the new features and enhancements, including Vista's superior searching and organization tools, its multimedia and collaboration suite, and the massive, top-to-bottom security-shield reconstruction.

With Vista, every corner of the traditional Windows has been tweaked, overhauled, or replaced entirely, but author and Windows expert William Stanek doesn't miss a trick. Every chapter is organized by feature to help you zero in on topics of interest, including how to: Set up, customizing and tune Windows Vista — Optimize the system's appearance; customize your hardware and sound devices; install, configure and manage software, and more Master your data and digital media — Learn to search your computer, capture and manage pictures and video, create libraries with Windows Media Player, and make movies with Windows Movie Maker Manage your files and data — Secure your files and data, share and collaborate, backup and restore Get connected and start networking — Understand Windows Mail and calendar, set up wireless networking and RSS, learn to synch and transfer data between computers, and access Windows Vista remotely Manage and support Windows Vista systems — Audit the security systems, learn to perform routine maintenance and troubleshooting Use advanced configuration and management — Learn to master Windows Media Center, how to use group policy, the power shell, navigate policies, and more

This complete soup-to-nuts treatment will put you in full control of Microsoft's new operating system, including every feature inevery corner. If you want to master Windows Vista, this is your book.
