I gotta tell ya. I have Windows 8 on one machine so far, and to say I don't like it, would be an understatement. I have chalked my dislike up to the fact that I'm from the old school where there was a START button, no tiles and the desktop didn't keep disappearing on me and being replaced by those annoying tiles. Guess what, this book helps, and it helps a lot. It has gotten me to a point where I don't HATE Windows 8 anymore. Now, I don't love it, but at least I don't want to throw my new laptop out the window.The 50 Tips and tricks in this book are fantastic, and has given me a better way to deal with this new operating system. It's also a fun read and a journey of discovery all wrapped up in one. I would recommend this book to anybody who has gotten the new operating system. It will definitely help you out.
Not really an instruction manual or user guide. In that sense it is exactly what it says. I was looking for more than a random collection of tips. My bad, though I will use about 10 or so of the tips.Editing is very poor, numerous typos, misspellings and wrong words
I just purchased a new touchscreen notebook with Windows 8. This book will be a great help & I have learned some wonderful tips & information for using Windows 8. I will definitely be using this book when I receive my new notebook. I like the quick easy information that will help me get started learning & navigating Windows 8. Thank you!
Upgrading from Windows XP to Windows 8 has been quite a trip!! This book was helpful in many aspects but just wish the author dwelt a little more on the simple fundamentals~~switching from one screen to another, trying to find where all my former info has been stored~~just trying to get the 'lay of the land' per se has been interesting.I am not as computer savvy as others , so I really cannot criticize the author~~it just wouldn't be fair to him. Remember, going from Windows XP to Windows 8 is similar to jumping from Kindergarten to the 12th Grade!!!I understand it's going to take a little while before I fully understand this new concept~~but I plan on keeping my text book close at hand on this new adventure.I am glad I purchased this book and do plan on keeping it close by.
As the title proclaims, it is a collection of tips and tricks - not really a step-by-step manual, it presupposes you already have some basic knowledge. I bumbled my way from 8.0 into 8.1 and have been using it for a year and a half, but now that I some some more time available I was looking for answers to specific questions. Because of the format it should be used as a look-it-up reference, not as a "textbook". Although a lot of topics are touched up, most of it is very superficial. If it weren't for all the grammar, word usage (homonyms) and sentence errors, I might have given it a 3 ("average") but they were so bad that I spent much of my time stopping to decipher what the writing was supposed to be saying, and I finally gave up in frustration. The message got lost in the poor presentation, hence the 2.
I have to say, it has been both a great relief and an eye opener to get this. There are lots of changes with Windows 8 and it has sometimes been difficult to get to grips with. I was thinking about reverting back to Windows 7 but after learning about all the cool features and how to get around Windows 8 I'm going to stick with it. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to get to grips with Windows 8.
This book was so easy to understand, especially compared to the more expensive book that I have read. Thank you for all the tips and explaining it, so we that are new to window 8 and 8.1 will become familiar with this new O.S.
Excellent resource, An easy to follow guide for those of us who are new to Windows 8. And the price was right as well!
