One Windows feature that has not improved over the years is the printed documentation. In fact, it has shrunk almost to the point of invisibility. Windows Millennium: The Missing Manual fills the gap, providing a common-sense practical guide to the latest version of Windows for home users. It is not highly technical, and would suit any user who wants to explore, customise and control their Windows PC.
The handbook opens by explaining the Windows desktop and Start menu, including icons, shortcuts, and the help system. Part Two covers components such as accessories, games, new features including Movie Maker, and the all-important Control Panel. The third part tackles all things Internet, while Part Four concerns printing, adding new hardware and maintaining a healthy system. Finally there is a simple guide to home networking.
The writing is clear and good-humoured, and there are plenty of handy tips and common-sense explanations. The differences between Windows Me and its predecessor, Windows 98, are a little exaggerated, and skilled 98 users will not find much here that is new. Another problem, common with this type of book, is that the author tends to assume that everything works as advertised. There are a few troubleshooting sections, but they do not amount to much. But provided not much goes wrong under the bonnet, this manual will take you a long way towards Windows mastery. --Tim Anderson
