Microsoft Windows Millenniurn Edition (or Windows Me, if you're in a hurry) brings refinement and new features to the most popular operating system on earth: drastically improved reliability, interactive Internet games, a movie/radio/MP3 player, and more. Unfortunately, it lacks one of the most important features of all: a printed manual.
Windows Millennium: The Missing Manual is the book that should have been in the box. In this superbly written guide, bestselling author David Pogue lights the way for first-time and intermediate PC fan The book covers:
* Getting started. The books early chapters cover using menus, finding lost files, reducing window clutter, and taming the wild Start menu.

* Flying the Net. This book demystifies Windows Me's rich Internet suite: its email, Web-browsing, video conferencing, and chat-room programs. It even explains how to use the PC for free long-distance phone calls.
Above all, Windows Millennium: The Missing Manual offers warm, witty, jargon-free writing, with enough basics for the novice and enough depth for the power user. The book bursts with enough shortcuts, advice, and surprising tricks to make using Windows comprehensible - and even delightful.
