Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Windows Vista represents a major improvement to Windows--one that's been long in coming. Because of that, many readers will be experienced Windows users who have grown accustomed to doing things a certain way. The new version of Windows will present a challenge to them. This book is for that reader.

Getting up to speed on a new version of Windows is a frustrating game called "Where have they buried the bodies?" People know what they want to do; they just don't know the new places to find what they need and the new steps involved to accomplish the task. Find Gold in Windows Vista shows readers the new places and the new steps in the new Windows. This book is different because computer users who already know Windows but are merely concerned with finding where the bodies are buried can use it to find quickly the exact information they need.

While experienced readers can enjoy this book's topical and to-the-point approach, beginners and those intimidated by computers will enjoy the tutorial aspect. This is the "Ask Dan" flavor of the book, where Dan explains in his usual, avuncular style how to do things for folks who are intimidated or perhaps just don't know a better way to get things done.

Synopsis:

"Why can't I get this daggone Vista to do what I want?"

So they completely retooled Windows with Vista. Fine, you say, but where the heck did my [insert your favorite feature here] go?

Not to worry. Dan Gookin has dug up every feature, program, process, and activity, and drawn you a map to locate them all. Everything about this book is unique, from its chapterless reference format to the tantalizing tidbits of trivia that accompany many entries. There's plenty of gold in Vista, and Dan makes it easy to find.

  • Alphabetical organization and cross-referencing help you quickly find the feature you're looking for
  • Troubleshooting tips can save the day

  • Warnings point out potential pitfalls along the way

  • Choice nuggets of information improve your overall Vista knowledge

  • Tips show you how to mine the greatest value from each feature and program

  • Entertaining sidebars give you additional useful details to help you find all the gold hidden in Vista
