5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Easiest To Learn From and Follow Windows 8.1 Book I Have Found! Superb Book! 22 octobre 2013
Par Daisy - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book the Windows 8.1 For Dummies is a superb book for so many reasons. First, it is written by Andy Rathbone, who has been writing many of the "For Dummies" computer books since 1992, his style of writing is interesting, very easy to follow, and even witty. This book is a wonderful book for anyone wanting to learn Windows 8.1 and if you are a beginner, or even a more seasoned computer user, this is a superb book. Although I am not a newbie to Windows or computers, I wanted to learn what the new features are in Windows 8.1 are and should I upgrade etc). Hence I purchased this book and am so glad that I did!

What first impressed me about this book is that the book is for the Windows 8.1 beginner or even a seasoned Windows 8.0 user who wants to learn "what is new and better in Windows 8.1 and should I upgrade etc..


-- Each chapter is like a mini lesson on Windows 8.1. These bring you to the most common things that you want to do in Windows 8.1 such as this I found in Chapter 22 on page 380 called Skip the Start Screen (how to boot to the Desktop (like in Windows 7) If this change is made then EVERY TIME Windows 8.1 starts the DESKTOP will appear rather than the START SCREEN. This chapter showed me how to do this. And there are illustrations of the menu selections so I knew what to check etc.

Also, in Chapter One, this book explains about why 8.1 has so many advantages and gives more info on the upgrade info. It also describes the improvements in Windows 8.1 over Windows 8.0.

-- Even though this is a beginner type of book, it also serves as reference book. Since I have finished reading the areas (new things about Windows 8.1), what I am doing is when I want to know something new, I look it up in the INDEX, as this is much faster to find it rather then sifting though chapters etc.

-- In every chapter, he gives important info that is easy to learn and to follow without being boring!

If you are a newbie on Windows 8 or especially 8.1, this book I believe will serve you well.
Highly recommend this book!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A good book for Windows 8 users, new and not-so-new 20 novembre 2013

Like many, I ordered this book because I had a new computer with Windows 8 on it (I just upgraded to 8.1) and there were some things I just couldn't figure out in the new version. I'm not the most computer-savvy person--I do know enough to get around on the internet and for my own personal uses but I was just flummoxed by some of the things I found (or didn't find) in Windows 8. I've had the book for about a week and have puttered around on it here and there. Already I have learned things I didn't know before getting the book and there's a lot more for me to learn.

I would give the book 5 stars except that some of the step-by-step directions in the book didn't work (for me) exactly as written. I was able to tweak the directions a bit and get it figured out but someone who may be very new to Windows 8 might not have known those tweaks.

I like the writing style of the author--he is light-hearted and amusing, which makes it much more pleasant to sit down with the book and go through it from front to back. I look forward to learning a lot more from this book so I can feel like I have a good command of Windows 8. THAT will be an achievement!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A good book for the less technically-minded 3 novembre 2013
Par Kirk H. Bubul - Publié sur
I have been buying Woody Leonhard Dummies books since Windows 95. However, he doesn't have a Windows 8.1 book out yet and I have just installed Windows 8.1 on my computer. So I bought the Rathbone book. Woody tends to be far more detailed in his writing than is Rathbone, but Rathbone's book has lots of good detail that will serve a moderately-capable user well. (The fifth star is missing from my rating because of relative lack of detail when compared to Leonhard's work.)

I have just recommended this Rathbone book to my 73-year-old sister and her runnin' buddy. They both about to leave their old hardware with Windows XP and get new Windows 8.1 systems.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Windows 8.1 For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech)) 5 novembre 2013

Simple! It has answers to questions I don't even know what to ask about! I pretty much am a self learner.

The best way this compares to similar products is the information I seek. The demeanor of the Author, Andy, Rathbone, and the way he presents every aspect of completing actions needed to get correct results is accurate and almost whimsical, making his STYLE more fun to read & understand! He also has books that cover subjects no one could even begin to think of! You'd have to see the list - it's huge!!

The instructions are in black & white, being tweaked as they are given, and all the extra movements are even included. I've used Dummies Series books since 1990 when I got my first computer. Used ones can be found, so the price is always great!

I waited until THIS book became available to get it because I had to buy a new PC & it was preloaded with WIN8, but needed a supplement because of all the problems WIN8 presented to so many people! I know I'll still be using the book probably for the rest of my life! I love the Dummies Books!! They are the only reference books I own! I still have the MS Office OUTLOOK 2003 dummies book and refer to it often!

I also like this book because there is somebody after the last page, who you can talk to for support! I emailed him a question and got a reply in about 24 hours. Thank God I've saved it because stuff comes in way to fast, non-stop & I haven't even been able to get back to him - but I will! ASAP!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrible, just plain terrible 15 novembre 2013
Par Gadgester - Publié sur
You know this book is a POS when you see Chapter 22 is sensationally titled "the ten things I hate about Windows 8.1" (it just has a few tips, some more useful than others). The book was evidently rushed to press to make a few bucks as soon as possible for the author and publisher, as the writing is confusing and lacks good editing and contains technical errors as well as leaves out a lot of important info. For example, the part about creating a Local Account is incorrect; you need to first click "Create a Microsoft Account" and then click "Use a local account" in the second screen, *not* the way the book says it's done. Also, you can easily make Desktop appear bigger through the Screen Resolution control panel applet where you click the link that says "Make everything appear bigger"; the author completely leaves this out while saying the Desktop is too small for fingers.

Also, even though early on the author says Windows 8.1 is heavily geared towards touch screen users, the whole book is geared towards mouse and keyboard. I have no beef with including mouse and keyboard instructions; I use Windows 8.1 tablets as well as desktops and laptops. But all too often he leaves out important touch screen instructions, such as when he keeps telling you to click the lower-left corner of the Start screen. The chapter on home network is unreadable.

There're plenty of other books that are way better than this, such as the Step by Step series and My Windows 8.1 from Que, as well as Missing Manual and Inside Out. You'll likely be confused and/or misled by this poor title. I'm returning my copy to B&N.
