More and more people are reading books these days on a tablet or e-reader. These types of electronic books are called eBooks or ePubs (that's short for electronic publication). Visual Steps has also published a number of ePubs. At the moment there are four ePubs available. The ePubs from Visual Steps are suitable for tablets, such as the iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Google Nexus and Kindle. Due to the large amount of screenshots and step-by-step instructions, the ePubs are not as suited for downloading onto a smartphone or e-reader.
In our free guide Purchase an Epub you can explore the ePubs that are available from Visual Steps. On the website accompanying each ePub you can find information about the book, the table of contents and the online stores where you can buy the ePub.

Creating backups (or safety copies) of files has become increasingly important for many computer users. A growing number of people save important and vital information on their computer. Often this will be business, tax or financial information, but it also can include photos and videos. Nowadays, lots of fond memories and unforgettable moments are recorded onto digital media with photo and video cameras.

A few years ago backups were usually created on storage media such as floppy disks, CDs, or DVDs. These types of storage media had one major disadvantage, in that you could only store a small amount of information on them. Larger backups soon required multiple disks, CDs, or DVDs. This all changed with the advent of the external hard drive. Nowadays it is also possible to save backups online.

It is wise to safeguard (or back up) your data at regular intervals. In case anything happens, you will still be able to retrieve important files. But before you create a backup, you will need to makes a few decisions. Do you need to create a full system backup, or is it better to copy the files yourself? What type of storage medium will you be using for your backup and where are you going to store it to keep it safe? You can create a safety copy of (all) your data and restore it to your computer if this becomes necessary. But you can also copy a number of files yourself. This can be useful if you want to display a series of photos or videos, for example, on another computer.

Topics covered in this book:

  • external hard drive
  • creating a backup in Windows 8.1
  • creating a backup of your bookmarks and email

Arranging and finding folders and files on your Windows 7 computer!

 

If you have lots of documents on your desk, it may prove to be impossible to find the document you are looking for. In order to easily find certain documents, they are often stored in a filing cabinet and arranged in a logical order. The folders on your computer serve the same purpose. They do not just contain files; they can also contain other folders. You can create an unlimited number of folders, and each folder can contain any number of subfolders and files.
You can use Windows Explorer, also called the folder window, to work with the files and folders on your computer. You can copy, delete, move, find, and sort files, among other things. Or you can transfer files and folders to a USB stick, an external hard drive, a CD, DVD or Blu-Ray disk. In this practical guide we will show you how to use the folder window, and help you arrange your own files.

Topics covered in this book:

  • arranging files and folder
  • finding and sorting files
  • burning files to cd, dvd or blu-ray disc
