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

If you want to know how to Control Microsoft's Windows XP the easy way, then this book is for you.

 The book was written with the non-expert, busy person in mind. After a general overview of the common Windows interface, the book concentrates on the controlling features of Windows XP as they appear in the new Category View of the Control Panel. 

The Book explains:

  • The new features in Windows XP, such as the Pictures and Fax Viewer, copying files and folders to a CD, compressing files and folders, changing the Taskbar buttons, and moving files and settings. 

  • How to control your display monitor and other hardware devices, such as printers, keyboard, mouse, phone and modem, scanners and digital cameras. 

  • How to control network and Internet connections, share information, and use My Network Places to upload Web pages to the Internet. 

  • How to create new user accounts, activate and manage the Guest account, add or remove programs, and control your computerís date, time, regional settings, sounds and audio devices, and speech recognition settings.

  • How to control the accessibility options, and use the performance and maintenance tools to control the power options on your PC, schedule tasks, clean up and defragment your hard disc, backup and restore your data, use Microsoft's Web site to update your Windows set-up, and how to restore your system to a previously working state.
