Knowledge Network partner Rich Robinson, who runs the Web site Windows Guides, has uploaded an excerpt from his book "Windows Vista - The Pocket Guide." The book covers the basics of customizing, improving and organizing your Windows Vista machine. It also promises to teach you how to back up your files, take control of security, maintain your computer and files, improve performance, increase efficiency and personalize your system.
The chapters excerpted in this document focus on getting started with Vista and data backup.
The chapter on getting started will help you decide which version of Vista meets your needs and how to work with the Windows Registry and the Group Policy Management Console. The chapter on data backup focuses on recovering lost data and creating a recovery disc.
Other excerpts, from some of the other Windows Guides publications, focusing on Vista customization and the upcoming Windows 7 operating system, will be posted on the Knowledge Network later this week.
