Windows 8 in Easy Steps (In Easy Steps) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Windows 8 is probably the most revolutionary version yet of the popular operating system from Microsoft. With a brand-new interface, new ways of getting around and accessing items and new possibilities for mobile devices, Windows 8 really does take the computing experience to the next level. But with Windows 8 In Easy Steps you need not worry about being left behind as the book shows you everything you need to know to get up to speed with Windows 8.

It begins by showing you how to get started with Windows 8 and how to get to grips with the new Metro interface. It deals with the basics (everything you could do from the Start screen in previous versions), accessing items, arranging your screen and using additional controls that are available from the sides of the screen. Much of the functionality of Windows 8 is aimed at touchscreen devices, whether they are desktop computers, laptops or tablets. This is dealt with in depth, as well as showing how everything can still be done with a traditional mouse and keyboard.

Windows 8 in easy steps offers a swift and smooth transition. Its useful for newbies and for those upgrading from earlier versions.
