However, I needed a basic, moderately-priced (about $20) manual for Windows 10, because I wanted to upgrade a Windows 8.1 laptop to Windows 10 without spending hours learning where everything was in the new operating system. I've never gotten comfortable with Windows 8.1, so upgrading without having a manual available was a near-certain recipe for disaster.
In this guide, exact screenshots explain every icon, button, tile, screen area, and procedure. The screenshots show exactly what a user should be seeing on the display while following detailed, written, step-by-step instructions for each procedure (e.g., "Connect to Your Wireless Network", "Navigate Web Pages", "Share a Document or Folder"). The screenshots are overlaid with lettered and numbered circles that help the user shift back and forth between the written steps and the appropriate navigational buttons and menus shown in the screenshots.
With this guide, the fastest way to learn how to do something is to skip the rather brief, inadequate Index, and to check the Table of Contents for the general area of interest. The TOC lists the chapters by general subject and by detailed subchapters that explain the steps for each covered operation. The basic chapter titles are: "Getting Started With Windows", "Customizing Windows", "Surfing the Web", "Sending and Receiving Email", "Getting Social With Windows", "Performing Day-to-Day Tasks with Apps", "Working with Images", "Working with Multimedia", "Editing Documents", "Working with Files", "Sharing Your Computer", "Getting More from a Tablet PC", "Implementing Security", and "Maintaining Windows".
From the TOC chapter titles, you can see that this manual covers only the basic end-user operations of Windows 10, and that the manual's emphasis is on PC tablet computing. However, that's partly because Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 are operating systems that are themselves designed to be oriented more toward mobile computing than desktop computing.
As user-friendly as Win 10 is, there are a lot of features the average user will miss or not know how to use. In comes this Teach Yourself Visually Windows 10 book. It could not be easier to understand or to follow. They take print screens, essentially, to show you what to do ON YOUR SCREEN. They show you how different apps work to simplify your life. Some of the tasks are incredibly basic (how to FIND things in documents) and includes the shortcut key Ctrl+F. So there are quite a range of tasks in this book.
For the experienced windows user, this book can help you more quickly find out how to do your favorite tasks, but also show you new ones you hadn't thought to do or known how to do before.
IF you're a real techy and know Windows really well, this book will probably be too basic overall. But for the average user it will be useful, and for those who struggle with change or are limited in what they know how to do in their prior version of Windows, this book will be an essential!
