Move your files to a new computer, or get your old PC ready for Vista

This book gets you through all the WIndows Vista tasks and tripwires, including starting programs, finding files, navigating the new see-through interface, staying safe while you cruise the Internet, and much more.

Andy Rathbone has been sharing his Windows wisdom since the first edition of Windows for Dummies in 1992. He's also the author of Upgrading and Fixing PC's for Dummies.

I was a relatively early adopter of Windows Vista (which was more by necessity than by choice) and whilst it did look at little like Windows XP in some areas most of it was quite different and I was a bit lost in the beginning. Initially I started out by googling anything that I wasn't sure how to do (which was quite a bit at first) but this was both tedious and time consuming, so when I was offered this book I jumped at the chance as I had read and used other Dummies books before and found them to be very easy to understand and yet didn't make me feel like I was the intellectual equivalent of a rock. This book was no exception.

It starts as all the Dummies books do with the basics like the Desktop, the Start menu and most importantly how do I use the new look Start Menu. From there it delves further into the mysteries of Vista and makes you realise how easy Vista really is to use.

Written by: K. Drinkwater

Product image for Dog TuckerAngry and defiant, thirteen year old Devlin believes he's unwanted. He's fed up with changing schools and foster homes, and decides to run away from his foster-uncle's farm. But then he meets a horse about to become dog tucker and a deception unravels....

This is a story about making choices, and of discovering how hope can lie in unlikely places.
