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 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 how to keep in touch with friends and family, how to browse the Internet for information, and how to control the operating system (in this case Windows XP Home or Professional Edition). It is the operating system that allows you to run other programs, store and retrieve information, and look after the health of your PC.

The Book explains:

  • How to manipulate Windows, and how to be in control of your data and filing system using My Computer.

  • How to control printers, and images, and how to add a fax printer and other 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 Internet Explorer to search the Internet for information, keep track of your favoured Web sites, History files, and use Microsoft's Hotmail service.

  • How to take advantage of the Accessibility tools to help users with sight, hearing, or dexterity problems, and how to use your scanned images, digital camera pictures, or video clips as attachments to your e-mail.

  • How to look after your Computer's health by using the System Tools to restore your system to a previously working state, use Microsoft's Web site to update your Windows Setup, how to clean up, defragment, and scan your hard disc, how to use power saving management schemes, and how to backup and restore your data.
