Windows 8 looks and acts differently than previous Windows versions. The touch–friendly Start screen and new apps can confuse even the most experienced Windows user.

  • Touch and go — get acquainted with the many features designed for touchscreen devices
  • Tour the web — use Internet Explorer, set up and use e–mail, access your social networks, and do it all with more security
  • When you have to share — discover how to protect everyone′s privacy and how to set up a network
  • The magic of media — play CDs, digital music, and movies, or work with photos transferred from your camera

Open the book and find:

  • Straightforward explanations of unique features
  • Which version of Windows 8 is right for you
  • Tips for touchscreen users
  • Whether you should upgrade to Windows 8
  • Easy, do–it–yourself maintenance tips
