Windows XP explained  -  BP514  -  6.99

One of over 70 books by Phil Oliver and Noel Kantaris, published by Bernard Babani (publishing) Ltd. Suitable for all Windows XP users.

If you want to know what to do next when confronted with Microsoft's Windows XP screen, then this book is for you. The book was written with the non-expert, busy person in mind. It explains what hardware requirements you need in order to run Windows XP successfully, and gives an overview of the Windows XP environment.

 The Book explains:

  • The preparation needed to upgrade to Windows XP and the installation process.

  • How to manipulate Windows, and how to use the Control Panel to add or change your printer, and control your display.

  • How to control information using WordPad, Notepad and Paint, and how to use the Clipboard facility to transfer information between Windows applications.

  • How to be in control of your filing system using Windows Explorer and My Computer. 

  • How to control printers, fonts, characters, multimedia, and images, and how to add hardware and software to your system. 

  • How to configure your system to communicate with the outside world, and use Outlook Express for all your e-mail requirements. 

  • How to use the Windows Media Player 8 to play your CDs, burn CDs with your favourite tracks, use the Radio Tuner, transfer your videos to your PC, and how to use the Sound Recorder and Movie Maker. 

  • How to use the System Tools to restore your system to a previously working state, use Microsoft's Web site to update your Windows set-up, how to clean up, defragment, and scan your hard disc, and how to backup and restore your data. 

  • How to successfully transfer text from those old but cherished MS-DOS programs.

A detailed glossary is included to help you with general computer terms.
