Product Description

Product Description

Are you the owner of a new Windows 8 computer and want to learn how to use it? Are you coming from a previous version of Windows and you aren’t quite sure where to find things now? Or maybe, you are looking to do a specific task like check email, or view your photos, and you just want simple step by step directions with lots of pictures to show you how? Well, you’ve come to the right place for all of that and more.

In this book you will learn the basics of getting around the new Windows 8 environment. This is a book for beginners and assumes you are more interested in how to do things then why things work, so it has more pictures than text. It also has things broken down by tasks to make it an easy to read either cover-to-cover, or used as a reference.

In this beginners book you will find instructions on how to do things like:

• Getting to know your way around the new Start Screen and Tiles
• Learn how to work with Apps
• Learn how to setup an internet connection on our computer
• How to setup and check Email
• How to get on the online Windows Store to download games, Apps, and books
• How to listen to your music and download new music from the online Windows Store
• How to watch your videos and download TV shows and Movies from the Online Windows Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good 18 Sep 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
when I had my new laptop I just didn't know where to start , as Windows 8.1 was on it. I did not have a clue, I have had laptops and computers in the past and got used to them ok, but this 8.1 was I thought very complex. All the books I saw were, both expensive or hard to understand. I eventually came across this book and it was the best for me giving basic easy to understand information to get on, shut down and really where to start and once I had the basic knowledge I started to get used to it. so I would recommend this book to start if you do not have a clue about Windows 8 and 8.1 and then maybe get a more advanced book if needed

it was OK but it is a very basic book and would be suitable for the novice. I was hoping for something a little more extensive.
