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.

(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.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
