Description : What’s the definition of a reference book? Well, I like to think of this book as a snapshot. Sure, it’s a very heavy photograph, weighing in at over 700 pages — but nevertheless, it captures the current state of today’s PCs, including hardware, the most popular applications, and of course, the latest and greatest incarnation of the Windows operating system that we all cherish (in this case, Windows XP Home and Professional). That covers a lot of ground, especially when you consider how the PC has branched out into all sorts of new directions in the last few years. What used to be primarily a simple word processing platform in the early days of DOS has now become a hub for digital video and CD-quality audio, an opti- cal recording center, an Internet communications system, a digital dark- room, a 3-D gaming console, an office productivity center . . . the list goes on and on. Therefore, fitting the features and functionality of today’s PCs into a single volume was a challenge for me — and it proved singularly rewarding as well because PCs are both my career and my favorite hobby! With that comprehensive approach in mind, this book still holds true to the For Dummies format: step-by-step instructions on each major feature within Windows XP, Microsoft Office, and other popular PC applications, with a little personal opinion, my recommendations, and my attempts at humor mixed in to add spice. I take the time to explain each topic for those who have just entered the PC universe, but you’ll uncover plenty of advanced information as well. With this book in hand, you can set up a wireless net- work, navigate an Excel spreadsheet, diagnose hardware problems, and even work magic with your digital camera. I sincerely hope that you enjoy this book and that it will help open up the countless possibilities offered by your PC. Thanks to the efforts of all those software developers, engineers, and hardware manufacturers, you and I get to play!
