Windows 10 started out as a kind of booby prize for folks who got suckered into buying Windows 8. It's a year old now, and many of the original kinks are ironed out. What hasn't changed, though, is Win10's snooping, and its infuriating insistence on updating itself. There are some tricks, which I discuss in the book.
If you're looking for a rehash of Microsoft's Party Line, you're looking in the wrong place.
I've been writing books for a long time. My first book - "Windows 3.1 Programming For Mere Mortals" - came out at the dawn of the Windows era. Along the way, I've learned that most folks appreciate the straight story, and that's what you'll find in all of my books, including this one. If there's a problem, I tell you about it, and try to steer you around it. If something works well (for example, Windows 10's Storage Spaces works wonders!), I not only point you to the feature, I explain in depth how to make it work right -- for you. If you don't need something -- antivirus in Windows 10 being a good example, because Win10 has all the AV you'll ever need -- I warn you to save your money. Lots of money.
The straight story. No sugar coating. I wrote this book for you, not for Microsoft.
Check out the previews for "Windows 10 All-In-One For Dummies." I hope you're impressed.
