Learn to use all the gizmos that come with Windows 7, shop online, view a slideshow of your favorite photos, send e-mail to a friend, enjoy music, and more! Tour the desktop - learn to use menus, the Start menu button, files, and folders. Do it - create notes and letters, connect a printer, download photos from your digital camera, and put music on a CD. Have some fun - discover Solitaire and other built-in games, listen to music, and watch a movie. Use the accessories - display Gadgets on your desktop, draw with Paint, and use the Calculator.

To keep or not - install additional programs you want and remove those you don't need. Protect your Windows - learn to use the Action Center, download and install virus protection software, and keep it up to date. Have it your way - make your screen easier to see, open files with a single click, and even have your computer read to you. The wide, wide Web - shop and explore online and learn to stay safe. Open the book and find: what's on the taskbar; directions for creating and saving documents; steps for installing a printer and other peripherals; how to connect to the Internet anywhere; Backgammon and other games you can play online; guidance on protecting your computer from viruses; how to send e-mail attachments; and, advice on backing up documents and photos.

Comments about Windows 7 For Seniors For Dummies:

I cannot believe I did not know about this book before. I was relying on my adult children to explain things to me and their patience was wearing thin. I rarely shop for books in stores any more so am thankful you had it in your catalogue. Thanks I love it!
