Your first PC can be intimidating. You’re probably panicky that you’ll hit a wrong key and send your information to some high-tech black hole or cause your PC to self-destruct. Not to worry. PCs Just the Steps For Dummies gives you simple directions for getting stuff done with your PC—everything from turning it on to using the Internet or a network. The book’s design features two columns, with numbered step-by-step instructions on one side and corresponding illustrations, screen shots, or photos on the other. You just pick the task you want to do and look up practical, no-nonsense how-to. This guide covers:
  • Hardware basics and peripherals, including printers, faxes, and scanners
  • Working with Windows XP, including managing memory and working with files and folders
  • Working with sound and video
  • Going online, searching the Web with Internet Explorer, and e-mailing with Outlook Express
  • Networking, including configuration and connection and sharing folders or printers
  • Protecting and troubleshooting your PC

With practical organization and a task-oriented approach, this book will have you inspired instead of intimidated. You won’t get an unabridged history of computers and a lot of gibberish; you will get clear, easy-to-follow instructions that help you get your tasks done efficiently on your PC.
