Windows 7 QuickSteps marks a coming of age with the popular QuickSteps series. Although author Martin Matthews has retained the easy-going style and approach that are the hallmark of QuickSteps books, Windows 7 is bound to appeal to both the new user and seasoned Windows professional users.This is an intense, concentrated documentation that someone who bought their first notebook at an electronics store is bound to sleep with under their pillow--if they can sleep at all with the introduction of Windows' sleek, but hardly intuitive new interface. The book is modular--it's much easier to find your topic of interest with the Table of contents than using the book's index--however, there is a logical sequence from fist pages onward. Chapters 1 and 2 introduce you to Win 7, covering the Desktop, Taskbar, the new Aero features such as task switching, and the invaluable essentials such as using a mouse, finding an application you're certain is on your system, and locating and managing files. From there, the book moves you onto customizing version 7 to suit your needs, and along the way revealing useful, unobvious features the user will certainly want to consider. If you're already a Windows Pro, you might want to pore through Chapter 2: features you're accustomed to from XP--particularly System Restore, how Control Panel is now arranged and categorized, how to turn on file extensions, and the Internet-style hierarchical structure of file displays--will make win 7 a dream come true instead of a nightmare.Windows 7 QuickSteps then proceeds to "The Good Stuff". Every new users wants to hop on the `net, and Chapter 3 shows you how to configure your connection (both dial-up and high-speed, thank you!
