After 30+ years of living in the PC world, I switched to a Mac a couple of years ago after Microsoft left Windows XP behind. It was a struggle at first, but the Apple OS is everything that was good about Windows plus SO MUCH more.

A couple of months ago, I received a "fully-loaded" HP computer as a gift. It came installed with Windows 8, which has since updated to 8.1. I find the current version of Windows MUCH LESS user friendly than XP and struggle with it. Thus, I purchased this book/DVD.

The first thing I experienced was the DVD would not play on the HP. Windows Media Player says the disk is blank and Power DVD just sits there and tries. Fortunately, my Mac will play the DVD and I have been able to watch the tutorials on the Mac while following along on the HP…..not a bad arrangement.

What I have found is the lessons are OK but have not been much help. Topics verbalized are not always demonstrated on the screen. And, not explained in enough detail to do it myself. Hence, a lot of clicking around and making mistakes. The book is a decent reference but neither get you directly from point A to point B. I will continue to fumble through this but am more successful (although EXTREMELY frustrated) with trial and ERROR.

It really makes me miss the C> prompt!!!!

I will look for another book and/or DVD soon. Hopefully, one that is more logical and thought out.

Purchased in conjunction with a new PC as a gift for my mother for Christmas, Windows 8.1 for Dummies Book and DVD bundle has started her off on the right foot in transitioning from Windows 7 to 8 or 8.1 operating systems. I choose to upgrade her PC to Windows 8.1 (free from Microsoft) out of the box because of the security improvements and ease of use issues that were addressed by the upgrade. While subtle, they make a huge difference to those who are used to 7 and feel overwhelmed by 8's new look.

Some of the changes addressed by Windows 8.1 include:

- Ability to boot directly to desktop mode versus app interface.
- Adding back the 'Start' button in the desktop mode.
- Ability to put together more apps for easier mulit-tasking.
- Improved search capabilities system wide, integrating SkyDrive.

While none of these changes are a huge jump away from 8, they are improvements that make Windows more friendly.

In terms of a book like this one, those who are already familiar with Windows 8, probably don't need to buy this book if you already feel fairly competent at using the OS. Current users may find other books like Windows 8.1: The Missing Manual more useful.

However, if you are 'new' to the whole Windows 8 or 8.1 experience, this is a clearly written reference that will provide an easy to read book hitting on all the major learning points. The DVD helped my mother, as she is a 'visual' learner, but for some it may be unnecessary. Windows 8.1 For Dummies is the DVD-free version of this book if you simply would like to read and not watch this information.

This book the Windows 8.1 For Dummies is a superb book for so many reasons. First, it is written by Andy Rathbone, who has been writing many of the "For Dummies" computer books since 1992, his style of writing is interesting, very easy to follow, and even witty. This book is a wonderful book for anyone wanting to learn Windows 8.1 and if you are a beginner, or even a more seasoned computer user, this is a superb book. Although I am not a newbie to Windows or computers, I wanted to learn what the new features are in Windows 8.1 are and should I upgrade etc). Hence I purchased this book and am so glad that I did!

What first impressed me about this book is that the book is for the Windows 8.1 beginner or even a seasoned Windows 8.0 user who wants to learn "what is new and better in Windows 8.1 and should I upgrade etc..

PROS:

-- Each chapter is like a mini lesson on Windows 8.1. These bring you to the most common things that you want to do in Windows 8.1 such as this I found in Chapter 22 on page 380 called Skip the Start Screen (how to boot to the Desktop (like in Windows 7) If this change is made then EVERY TIME Windows 8.1 starts the DESKTOP will appear rather than the START SCREEN. This chapter showed me how to do this. And there are illustrations of the menu selections so I knew what to check etc.

Also, in Chapter One, this book explains about why 8.1 has so many advantages and gives more info on the upgrade info. It also describes the improvements in Windows 8.1 over Windows 8.0.

-- Even though this is a beginner type of book, it also serves as reference book. Since I have finished reading the areas (new things about Windows 8.1), what I am doing is when I want to know something new, I look it up in the INDEX, as this is much faster to find it rather then sifting though chapters etc.

-- In every chapter, he gives important info that is easy to learn and to follow without being boring!

If you are a newbie on Windows 8 or especially 8.1, this book I believe will serve you well.
Highly recommend this book!

When we first bought our new computer it had windows 8.1 After using it we found that we absolutely hated it. Tried working it and found we hated it all the more. Found that it sucked all the joy out of using the computer. We thought we would give the windows 8.1 for dummies a try. Reading this book helped us to understand the program. It worked us through all areas we had trouble with, and did it in a way that was easy to understand. We now love the windows 8.1 It has brought the joy in using the computer back
