These days everyone has a desktop computer, laptop, or at least a device such as a smartphone or tablet that they use to go online, send emails, and so on. And for the people who use a personal computer at home or at work then there is a very good chance that it is running Microsoft Windows. And if it’s a newer computer then there is a very good chance its running Windows 10 since new or has been upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or Windows 8.Microsoft has said that Windows 10 will be the last version of their desktop operating system and that they will just continue to update it and add new features rather than come out with new versions. Time will tell if they will stick with this strategy or if they will feel the pressure to come out with something new just for the sake of generating some hype and of course more sales.This goal of this book is to help you get the most out of your Windows 10 computer and make you a more proficient computer user. I will cover the basics (in detail) to better help you understand how to do things like configure and customize Windows, use the great built in features and software as well troubleshoot issues that you may run into while using your computer. A lot of this content will apply to previous versions of Windows so you will be able to apply your newfound knowledge to older computers as well.The chapters in the book cover the following topics:Chapter 1 – What is Windows?Chapter 2 – Installing WindowsChapter 3 – Configuring and Customizing WindowsChapter 4 – Installing DevicesChapter 5 – Windows AppsChapter 6 – File and Folder Management Chapter 7 – User AccountsChapter 8 – Microsoft Edge Web BrowserChapter 9 – Windows 10 SettingsChapter 10 – Networking Chapter 11 – Basic TroubleshootingAbout the AuthorJames Bernstein has been working with various companies in the IT field since 2000, managing technologies such as SAN and NAS storage, VMware, backups, Windows Servers, Active Directory, DNS, DHCP, Networking, Microsoft Office, Exchange, and more.He has obtained certifications from Microsoft, VMware, CompTIA, ShoreTel, and SNIA, and continues to strive to learn new technologies to further his knowledge on a variety of subjects.He is also the founder of the website OnlineComputerTips.com, which offers its readers valuable information on topics such as Windows, networking, hardware, software, and troubleshooting.
