PCs FOR DUMMIES: 11th edition

DAN GOOKIN    Book Number: 82167    Product format: Paperback

The world of computer technology moves at breakneck speed and this vintage 2007 issue in the invaluable "Dummies" series stops with Vista, which is no longer supported by Microsoft. But the book nevertheless contains masses of useful information for PC users who need to know the basics. What are Ethernet and LAN, for instance? The author says that 80% of people could not explain what a file and a folder are, and he offers the opinion that it was a mistake for early software developers to adopt the terminology of the paper-based office. Networking and File Sharing are still a mystery to many PC users, and power management, enabling you to maximise your PC's energy-saving capabilities, is a foreign country to the average householder wrestling with the morning's crop of emails. How to identify a reliable download and where to save it are things we all need to know. External storage, memory cards and USBs are explained, as are the mysteries of photo-editing. Should you turn your PC off or leave it to hibernate? It may be a good idea to subscribe to a computer magazine, but "Avoid the nerdier magazines," advises the author, adding, "but I probably didn't need to tell you that." 384pp, paperback, diagrams.
