This book is designed for people who are new to the Windows environment and who want to learn how to use Windows 2000 Professional. The author has drawn upon his years of study and classroom teaching experience to provide a basis step-by-step approach that leads to the development of skills that can be applied at school, work, or at home. The book is divided into eight, easy-to-manage, user-friendly lessons. Each lesson consists of a series of tasks that take you by the hand and walk you through more than 50 Windows concepts and routines step by step. Every step is accompanied by a screen capture, showing the end result of each action that you take. You can, therefore, refer to the book after each step to be sure you have successfully executed each command. This approach eliminates much of the frustration that too often accompanies the acquisition of computer skills.show more
