COMPUTING WITH A LAPTOP FOR THE OLDER GENERATION R.A. Penfold
Laptop computers have rapidly fallen in price, increased in specification and performance and become much lighter in weight. They can be used practically anywhere, then stored away out of sight. It is therefore, not surprising that laptop sales now far exceed those of desktop machines and that they are increasingly becoming the machine of choice for the older generation.
You may want to use your laptop as your main computer or as an extra machine. You may want to use your laptop on the move, at home, at work or on holiday. Whatever your specific requirements are, the friendly and practical approach of this book will help you to understand and get the most from your laptop PC in an easy and enjoyable way. It is written in plain English and wherever possible avoids technical jargon.
Among the many topics covered are: Choosing a laptop that suits your particular needs. Getting your new computer set up properly. Customising your computer so that it is optimised for your particular needs. Setting up and dealing with user accounts. Using the Windows ‘Ease of Access Center’. Optimising the life and condition of your battery. Keeping the operating system and other software fully up-to-date. Troubleshooting common problems. Keeping your computer and data safe and secure. And much more besides…
Even though this book is written for the older generation, it is also suitable for anyone of any age who has a laptop or is thinking of buying one. It is written forcomputers that use Windows Vista as their operating system but much will still apply to Windows XP machines.
