Format: Paperback
I confess. I have never learned to do anything on our computer. Any help I ever needed I could easily get from my two teenaged sons. Well, now the second is on his way to college in the fall and Mother Dear suddenly realized she will be home alone with this machine!!! EK! In a panic I found this handy book at the library (and am now in the process of getting a copy for myself). It IS simple and explains common every day processes in a manner that I have been able to duplicate myself. WOW! If this 50+ Mom can do it, so can you.
