Two new books about Windows 10 will be available soon! The titles are Windows 10 for SENIORS for the Beginning Computer User and Windows 10 for SENIORS.

These books cover Microsoft's new operating system Windows 10. There is a difference between the books. Windows 10 for Seniors for the Beginning Computer User is the ideal book for beginners and seniors. It is written especially for people with little technical knowhow or who have seldom or never used a computer before. Right from the beginning you learn step by step how to turn the computer on and off and you will get acquainted with the mouse, keyboard, touchpad and other parts of the computer. You will learn how to open and close programs and work with files and folders. In your own tempo you will learn how to surf the Internet, use email and adjust settings, such as the text size used on your screen.

Windows 10 for SENIORS is the ideal book for seniors who have worked with an earlier version of Windows on a desktop or laptop computer and want to get started right away with Windows 10. All of the most important topics are covered, such as using the Internet safely, sending and receiving email and working with files and folders. You will also learn how to organize and view photos and videos and listen to music in Windows 10.
