Book News Annotation:

This well-illustrated how-to guide is appropriate for novice PC and Windows users. Each one- to two-page entry describes, in fewer than 10 steps, how to complete common tasks on the computer and the web. The 13 chapters each cover a broad task, such as setting up and using the PC, connecting to the internet, communicating online, working with digital photos, and protecting the computer. Within those, readers can learn the basics, from powering on to setting up printers and scanners, managing drives, buying and selling on craigslist.com, using Twitter, burning a CD, and defragmenting the hard disk, among other tasks.
