A good guide to XP Pro

  Ellen G 16:43 30 Apr 2004

I have a disability which limits the amount of surfing and shopping around I can do. I'd like to know which guide to Windows XP pro people think is the best. I am fairly knowledgeable about 98se so not a complete novice. There are several (often expensive) guides on the market. I'd like something which is relatively clear and easy to understand but also reasonably comprehensive. And it doesn't need to include much about internet explorer.

Can anyone suggest anything?

Thanks in advance.

I think I'd prefer a paper copy as the basic guide, before I look for up-to-date info on the net.

Anymore ideas?

Yes, I saw 'the missing manual' listed on Amazon. It was one of the ones I was interested in.

Many thanks.

ZEROTOLERANCE - Please start a fresh thread, otherwise you're unlikely to get any responses. Good luck, G

I have just got a new comp XP, but still got the main comp using 98se on the net but it's just a matter of looking were MS have stored all the bit's. I am like one of my dogs looking for treats round the room. And it's supposed to be easy
