    I am using this book every day. There are lots of differences in Windows 8. I do not believe they are all better. It would help if the computer had an instruction manual included with the purchase. I have been using computers for years. But it is taking me quite a while to find how things work with this new system. Maybe this is great for real computer experts but I am no expert.It took me a while just to find the instructions included in the files on the hard drive. And a lot of things about this Windows 8 is just purely aggravating. When I start doing something the page just jumps to a different page before I even realize what is happening. So I am not fond of the "touch pad". Move your finger slightly and you never know what will happen. Anyway, the book "Windows 8 for Dummies" is really helping this "Dummie".

    Expected more step by step instruction. Book seems to be more about basics and sometimes is a bit boring and vague. It does say do not read as a novel and that is true. It is a reference and has some pictures. More was learned in a few minutes from the Staples representative who is a very good listener. I will probably refer to the book but us older folks have learned from Windows as a rule and the Windows 8 is very different and geared for the younger generation. I have learned that Windows 8 is more like my phone.

    Comments about Dimmies Windows 8 For Dummies:

    What can I say? This is a MUST HAVE for those of you who are like me - "Computer Illiterate". I could barely understand using my old Windows Vista XP but when we bought our new PC. We said give us the latest and greatest. Ho Boy! We came home and set up our new pc and there she sits. And sits. Windows 8 is sooooooo much more than we ever had. We have been overwhelmed. I was able to check e-mail barely, but there is so much more involved that we have been struggling. I purchased this book and WOW! This book has so much helpful information. It even says right in the book - Use this book as a Companion Guide. Whenever you come across something you are not sure of - look it up in the book. The book also has lots of other helpful information like how to set up individual user accounts and passwords... Whether you are just new to windows 8 or to a computer in general - This book is worth the investment!

    Comments about Dimmies Windows 8 For Dummies:

    Windows 8 is a terrible operating system. it is to complicated and cumbersome. by the time you search how to do something it is the slowest system ever. Windows8 stinks,
    Now windows 8 for dummies does a pretty fair job of helping you navigate this rotten system, but it does not go far enough. Microsoft should be ashamed of themselves and should have had operating instructions with the program.

    Navigation Guide

    Comments about Dimmies Windows 8 For Dummies:

    The opening page on Windows 8 was so different from my Vista one that I felt lost. This book walked me through how to get to the files I needed, etc. It will be a handy guide to have on my desk book shelf and I am sure I will refer to it again and again as I learn how to navigate my new desktop and laptop.
