Tis is a new OS for me since I'm used to Windows 7 for many years, so I needed some help navigating thru. tis is better than Windows 10 for dummies. This is a step by step approach to this new OS. Has a lot of graphics to help you meander through the apps and programs. Helped me alot
For me, this book was more difficult than Windows 10 itself. It assumes a basic knowledge of computers that only well-trained people have. I am not a dummy -- I have a Ph.D., and I've been an end-user on computers for 20 years. This book doesn't do a good job because Windows 10 is not finished. Every morning, I find that the program has been altered enough and updated so much more that I can't find what I did the day before. It's been a huge frustration. The book has been a total waste of time and money for me.
As a challenged "senior", I have some issues with the book which are bothersome to me. It arrived today and I quickly tried to put it to use. However, I soon discovered that the Index doesn't match with the subject material and requires one to search "in the neighborhood" of the page cited in the index. I also found the Index to be deficient - many topics are just missing despite being of somewhat important value - for example, creating a recovery drive is missing. Perhaps the Index relates to an earlier proof edition? I hope that I can overcome this sloppiness that the author shows and derive some benefit anyway - returning it to is not a viable option for me.
All of the "For Dummies" books for seniors are well done, but going from Windows 7 to Windows 10 is a bit of a leap for me because although the new OS is very user friendly it is a new look and feel. The breakthrough here is that this new system is a big step in the direction of a full touch interface. The problem is the flexibility; those of us who are not computer savvy can easily activate functions that we do not understand and may find it difficult to return to the original state. This book has senior savvy features such as large print and many clear illustrations, and most seniors will find it a most helpful aid in setting the desktop up and making some choices about this versatile operating system.
Although the book professes to be written for seniors, this "senior" with 35 years experience in self-taught hacking found it confusing. Terms not explained--or worse, explained in jargon not English--left me fumbling and saying things that a lady of 84 should not say. Not helpful for me.
I bought this book hoping it would tell me how to make a rescue drive for win 10 but it didn't do that and was of no help to me at all.In the past I have bought "Dummies" books and they have helped me understand windows operating systems, this book helped with nothing. the author of this book is not the usual name of dummies books. the book is now in the recycle bin
My father kept calling everyday frustrated that he couldn't figure out his computer since the update. I sent this to him and he called today, it has helped him immensely!
Too many issues not written about in the book.
