Book News Annotation:

A couple who have coauthored many books on the Microsoft Windows operating system present a basic primer on Windows 7. Starting with installation instructions in the unlikely event that a computer doesn't come with the OS pre-installed, they cover the basics of working in Windows, running programs, and utilizing all of its audio-visual, Internet and networking capabilities. The color- illustrated guide is suitable for those new to or upgrading from other versions of Windows. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
