Windows 8.1 explained
on 14 December 2013
Well-designed in colour on decent paper, it is a pleasure to use. Actions are explained by numbered steps in PC screen images in colour, which save you from getting lost - though the text size here is small.
It is suitable both for beginners and more advanced users. It is comprehensive, but if a feature is not covered fully (Windows 8.1 is very complex) you are are normally guided to where information can be found. If there is a problem it is with Windows 8.1 itself which can be a nightmare if you are familiar with Windows 7.
The previous 'Brilliant Windows 7' served me well: so this version should be useful until the next Windows update. As a Windows 8.1 guide I don't see how it could be much better - within the limits of its 556 pages. If you are struggling with 8.1, as many people are, this should see you through.
