got given a new computer which is great but it has windows 8 on it and it is very confusing this book is making it easier to use. being an older person the larger writing and simplenest of the book make it easy to read and understand.
Takes the confusion out of the Windows 8.1 Desktop for first time users, or, anyone updating from earlier versions of Windows.
Aptly named 'For Seniors".
De-mystified Windows8 to a large extent. Could have covered a wider area of use of program.
Windows8 was a foreign language until the Dummies edition came to hand.
