Editorial Reviews Review

Color for its own sake isn't necessarily good. Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition at a Glance takes a good thing--the heavily graphical way of illustrating procedures that are made popular in the Visual QuickStart books, by Peachpit Press--to an extreme. The color surely upped the cover price; and, although the pages are generally attractive and well laid out, it's not clear that the color makes it any easier to learn how to make Windows Me retrieve your e-mail or play your MP3 files.

That said, this book is fine for the novice. If you're unfamiliar with the conventions that emerged with Windows 95 or with Microsoft's recent Internet software, you'll appreciate the patient approach.

Text-and-graphics capsules explain how to carry out procedures; say, the one for setting up a signature that will appear at the end of each of your e-mail messages. You get a picture of the relevant piece of Windows Me (in the case of e-mail signatures, the Options box from Outlook Express). Callouts point from the text of the steps to the piece of the interface that's relevant to each. In this way, you understand more clearly what you should do next. --David Wall

Topics covered: Windows Me for novices, with emphasis on basic file-management conventions, the applets that ship with the operating system (such as Paint), Windows Me's networking capabilities, and multimedia.
