Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional At a Glance

This book is aimed at users who already have Windows 2000 Professional installed on their PC, with an emphasis on those working within a corporate network.

It deals with all user aspects of the operating system, focussing on getting the most from the Windows 2000 interface.

System administrators and those wanting to perform complex tasks in Windows 2000 will need to look elsewhere, but it is suitable for just about everyone else.

The chapters can be read in any order. All the fundamental areas of the new OS are covered, including file management and sharing, using programs, printing, multimedia, using e-mail, fax & news, taking files on the road, customising the interface and administration tasks. There are extensive screen shots, step-by-step guides and graphical help.

According to the authors, the aims of the book are to:

(i) Quickly help you to do what you want with Windows 2000;(ii) Show you things you might want to do but didn't know you could do; and(iii) Enjoy the experience of working with Windows 2000.

This very basic book will help anyone become proficient with Windows 2000 with a minimum of fuss. There are useful cross-references in each chapter that point you to information on related tasks. If you are new to Windows 2000 either at home or work, get yourself a copy.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
