Complete Boot Up: Everything You Need to Know to Get the Best Out of Your PC
If you want to take control of your PC, rather than let it control you, Complete Boot Up is full of straightforward advice, tricks of the trade and real-world Q&A sections that give you the confidence you need to get the very best out of your home and office PC. It is a guide, a reference tool and a much-needed companion for all PC users from beginners to experts. If you are looking to buy a new PC or need pointers on finding your way around an existing one, you've found the right book. You can explore the full range of capabilities that currently lie hidden within your PC: from creating stationery, to using email, web cams, digital photography and scanners. You will also find help with troubleshooting and practical problem-solving if things ever go wrong. And the secrets revealed in the 150 Top Tips will keep you hooked for hours. Complete Boot Up relates exclusively to the Microsoft Windows operating system (including the most recent XP version) and brings together, and fully updates, Rick Maybury's previous Boot Up books.
