I have a friend who's worked for years in IT at a major biotech company. He works with brilliant people from PhDs to MBAs, but 90% of the work he does isn't setting up complicated networks, recovering corrupted files, or troubleshooting complex compatibility issues. Ninety percent of his day is helping set up user accounts, restarting frozen computers, and generally helping navigate "basic" computing tasks. He jokes that he's got great job security, but that if the company offered a basic computing course and instilled some computing confidence in their employees they could cut two thirds of the IT work force.Its not that the people who need help aren't smart or can't pick up new technology, but they probably haven't ever been formally taught basic computer use skills and they're intimidated. Between not understanding the interface and fearing damaging the computer many people (not just seniors) opt for inaction over the unknown.This book can end that.Windows 8 For Seniors For Dummies isn't the end-all-be-all guide to Windows 8. It skims the surface of its functionality, but depth isn't its goal. This book is a confidence builder that's designed to get a new Windows 8 user up and running with confidence to spare so that they can play around with their new computer and discover additional functionality on their own.The book is meant to be read cover to cover, but between the table of contents and a very capable index it could be used as a reference as well. The book is laid out in four main parts:The first helps you get set up with a user account, introduces you to the new home screen, and helps you get your settings the way you want them.The second section covers the internet, emailing, and social apps.
