Review

“…the most well–known range of computer books…” ( Computer Active, January 2005)

Synopsis

Windows is the world's most popular operating system, and "Windows For Dummies" is the bestselling computer book ever. When you look at "Windows XP For Dummies, 2nd Edition", it's easy to see why. Here's all the stuff you want to know, served up in plain English and seasoned with a few chuckles. But make no mistake, this book means business. Author Andy Rathbone listened to what you wanted to know, and this edition is loaded with additional information about: e-mail, faxing, and troubleshooting; maximizing security features; customizing and upgrading Windows XP; multimedia applications-CDs, digital music and photos, video, and more; and, answers to questions asked by thousands of Windows users.If you're just getting started with Windows XP, you'll find "Windows XP For Dummies, 2nd Edition" is a lot easier than trying to get the fourth-grader next door to explain it to you. (Andy Rathbone is a lot more patient.) There's a whole section devoted to "Windows XP Stuff Everybody Thinks You Already Know," so you can get the hang of the basics quickly and in the privacy of your own home.

And if you've been around a couple of generations of Windows, you'll be especially interested in how to squeeze maximum security from the beefed-up anti-spam and firewall features in Service Pack 2."Windows XP For Dummies, 2nd Edition" is sort of like a buffet - you can sample everything, or just stick with the stuff you know you like. You'll find out how to: locate programs and files, organize your information, and fax, scan, or print documents; get online safely, send and receive e-mail, work with Internet Explorer's security toolbar, and steer clear of pop-ups, viruses, and spam; make Windows XP work the way you want it to, share your computer while maintaining your privacy, set up a network, and perform routine maintenance; transfer and organize pictures from your digital camera, edit digital video, and create custom CDs of your favorite tunes; and, use Windows XP's troubleshooting wizards and become your own computer doctor.With its task-oriented table of contents and tear-out cheat sheet, "Windows XP For Dummies, 2nd Edition" is easy to use. You can quickly find what you want to know, and you just may discover that this book is as important to your computer as the power cord.
