While other Vista books can regularly be 500 or more pages, this book cuts through all the technical jargon and gives you exactly what you want: the most important, most requested, and just plain coolest things about Vista that will change the way you work on your PC. Each page covers just one topic, complete with full color photos and screenshots, making it easy to find what you’re looking for fast. You’ll learn how to take advantage of Vista’s newest features in order to better manage your digital photos, secure your computer, play your music, customize your computer’s look and feel, work with video, back up your data, and much, much more.
