This book takes you by the hand & walks you through step - by - step. It assumes you have little or no experience - which in my case is exactly where I am with Windows 8. The illustrations are also step - by - step and are in color. Arranged by topic - very nice presentation. Recommended for anyone struggling with the abominable Windows 8.

The book as I look through it as I just received it looks great BUTWindows 8 is one I did not want. I am stuck with it as the sellerwould not put Windows 7 on my laptop. I am counting on goingthrough Windows 8 step by step to learn it.If I can, I will try to get back to the reader's about my success!

This very well written and highly colored illustrated book Windows 8 QuickSteps is a book that I recommend to you if you are new to Microsoft Windows 8.For me, I have found this book to be very easy to follow and understand and I recommend it to you for the following reasons:1) There are 10 chapters in this book and each chapter is a mini lesson and can be completed in a very short time.2) Each chapter (lesson) has fully illustrated pictures that SHOW YOU how to complete tasks and this book is written in an easy to understand way that I find so easy to follow.3) One part of this book that I found the MOST helpful is in Chapter 1 - Stepping into Windows 8 - Using the Keyboard. There is a huge mapped chart that tells you how to use the Windows Key + another key to perform a task easiest.***These are the two Windows key plus other key you need to know: Windows + D - gets you to the Desktop (I placed my shortcuts to my favorite programs as Word, Excel, etc all on my Desktop) and Windows + C - This brings you to the Charms, you select Power from the Charms menu to turn Off the computer. These two Windows key combinations will be your two BEST FRIENDS in Windows 8 (that is Windows+D and Windows+C)4) This superb book covers the very basics to intermediate so you can get up and running fast! This is a book that you can keep on hand like a reference book. It is a superb book written by a very caring author, which reminds me of a kind and loving teacher.5) This book is very easy to follow and understand, it is almost like having a caring teacher right there showing you how to do tasks in Windows 8.Highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to learn Windows 8 and buy a superb Windows 8 book.

I purchased two books "Windows 8 Quick Steps" and the "Complete Idiot's Guide toMicrosoft Windows 8" and I am very pleased with both of them. What one doesn't help me with, the other does. They are both very good books. You're not talking about someone 30, 40 or even 50 using these, I am almost 70 and still work, use a computer at work and like to keep up with the latest technology.

You've got to be kidding me that windows 8 or 8.1 is better. It just plain sucks and makes billions for microsoft. Books and manuals bought seperately are a must have, But why not stay with windows 7?

It was out of date very quickly, as windows 8 kept changing. I was too confused.A current edition would be great
