Windows 8 for Dummies (Wiley)

For a limited time, Dell has teamed up with Wiley to offer a free download of the new “Windows 8 for Dummies,” pocket edition.

The 147-page book is a quick primer on how to navigate in Windows 8, what’s new and how to use Windows 8 features and Apps.

For most people, the book will be all you need to get started and running Windows 8.

Dell are providing a free download at a site humorously named New doesn’t have to be scary.

Windows 8 for Dummies is a pdf eBook that works nicely in the Windows 8 Reader or Adobe Acrobat Reader.

If you are using Windows 8 already, type “Windows 8 for Dummies” and cursor down to files. The book will appear on the left upper screen. Right click and select “Reader” to open the eBook.

Like all “Dummies” books, it’s a quick read and easy to understand. The illustrations work well in detailing the concepts.

I read the book on-screen in a short time. Despite using Windows 8 for months, I learned a few things so it’s reasonably comprehensive.

And it’s free. The link to the $15 printed edition with DVD from is below.

  1. Start screen
