Kurzbeschreibung

Windows 8.1 continues the evolution of the most radical redesign in Microsoft’s history. It combines the familiar Windows desktop with a new, touchscreen-friendly world of tiles and full-screen apps. Luckily, David Pogue is back to help you make sense of it—with humor, authority, and 500 illustrations.

The important stuff you need to know:

  • What’s new in 8.1. The update to 8.1 offers new apps, a universal Search, the return of the Start menu, and several zillion other nips and tucks.
  • New features. Storage Spaces, Windows To Go, File Histories—if Microsoft wrote it, this book covers it.
  • Security. Protect your PC from viruses, spyware, spam, sick hard drives, and out-of-control kids.
  • The network. HomeGroups, connecting from the road, mail, Web, music streaming among PCs—this book has your network covered.
  • The software. Media Center, Photo Gallery, Internet Explorer, speech recognition—this one authoritative, witty guide makes it all crystal clear. It’s the book that should have been in the box.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well written and very helpful 2. Dezember 2013
Von R. Laudig - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I just bought a new ASUS Transformer that is running Win 8.1. Coming from a laptop with Win 7, I needed considerable hand holding in order find my way around 8.1. After reading the reviews (something I really appreciate with Amazon) I decided to try this book. It not only looked like it had what I needed, but it was also available as an eBook. I got it instantly on my Fire 7HD and was able use it right at my side as I wandered through my new ASUS. I am impressed with the overall coverage which seems to me to be written in a rather 'middle of the road' manner. This is, not too simplistic, but also not too technical. The author has included small side notes on either side if the main text that will explain some things in a simpler manner for those with limited experience as well as side notes for those who would appreciate more technical details. I have just read the first four chapters, but have found them very helpful in understanding how 8.1 works as well as some very handy tips and shortcuts. I am looking forward to reading through the entire book. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is migrating to Win 8.1. Incidentally, I have found it extremely handy to have it as an eBook at my side on my Fire while using the Transformer.

Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Windows 8.1

Missing manual? What manual? I’m an experienced computer user since the days of DOS, and have made my way through all the iterations of Windows since version 3.0. I recently purchased a Microsoft Surface Pro 2 and had my first introduction to Windows 8.1. There was certainly no documentation with the computer that gave any clue to navigating the new user interface, it took me several days to begin to use the computer in a productive manner, learning by trial and error. And there were more errors in the beginning for sure.

But this review isn’t on Windows 8.1, it’s on the missing manual. And this book by David Pogue is comprehensive (932 pages) and well written. It even has an index of 32 pages. For most users the biggest hurdle in dealing with the new operating system is the tiled interface. This book explains the reasons for and the use of the tiled “tablet” interface, and explains the gestures need to utilize the new interface with ease.

One of the biggest complaints that users have about any operating system is their frustration with the myriad ways to complete a particular action. David Pogue charts a middle course, he doesn’t list every way, but he tends to show how to complete the action with the mouse, with the keyboard, and if applicable, with touch. He also touches (sorry) on using Windows 8.1 in much the same way that Windows 7 is used, which will be the most common choice of those who work with programs such as Word, Excel, and Photoshop. He covers the “touch” interface which is likely to be used most commonly in tablets and some touch-enabled laptops. As is usual with David, his descriptions and explanations are clear and unambiguous.

I think this book is a must have for those who wish to understand the features of and utilize in full the productivity of Windows 8.1. Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dealing with TileWorld 13. Dezember 2013
Von Brett Merkey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I don't particularly like the new and controversial Windows "TileWorld" and I guess I'm not alone. Win 8.1 reflects certain concessions to user feedback and that is good.

The "missing manual" books are solid values. I have bought and reviewed several. David Pogue, an experienced and enthusiastic writer, is fun to read online and this book is as good and as lively as expected.

Consider buying this book *before* actually having to confront Windows 8+ for the first time. Yes, you will end up with this excellent 900 page reference (with index) on your shelf or in your e-reader but it would also be a great companion for those first moments and hours with the new operating system. Pogue starts his first chapters almost as if had that precise scenario in mind.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Great Missing Manual 16. Februar 2014
Von T. Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have said more than once that one of the biggest misconceptions people have about my skill set is that because I can develop software for the iPhone, iPad, and Windows 8 tablets, I must know everything there is to know about using them. 90% of my time spent on a computer is spent in code, UML tools, and using basic Word functionality.

I do not play games, make photo albums, plan vacations, or read books on them. In other words, I am not as computer savvy as the business user or teenager that use them to connect to the world and conduct their business or coordinate a gaming session.

I am very grateful for the Missing Manual series because they put everything I need to know about my devices in one place, and I don't have to spend the time looking for features.

I have listed the eight parts of this Missing Manual and the chapters they contain below.

Part One. TileWorld
1. The Start Screen
2. Customizing the Lock, Login & Start Screens
3. How TileWorld Works
4. TileWorld’s Starter Apps
5. TileWorld Settings

Part Two. The Windows Desktop
6. File Explorer, Folders & the Taskbar
7. Searching & Organizing Your Files
8. Redesigning Your Desktop World
9. Help at the Desktop
10. Programs & Documents
11. The Desktop’s Starter Programs
12. The Control Panel

Part Three. Windows Online
13. Hooking Up to the Internet
14. Security & Privacy
15. Internet Explorer 11
16. Windows Live Mail

Part Four. Pictures & Music
17. Windows Photo Gallery
18. Windows Media Player

Part Five. Hardware & Peripherals
19. Printing, Fonts & Faxing
20. Hardware & Drivers

Part Six. PC Health
21. Maintenance, Speed Tweaks & Troubleshooting
22. Backups & File History
23. The Disk Chapter

Part Seven. The Windows Network
24. Accounts (and Logging On)
25. Setting Up a Small Network
26. Corporate Networks
27. Sharing Files on the Network
28. The Road Warrior’s Handbook

Part Eight. Appendixes
A. Installing Windows 8.1
B. Fun with the Registry
C. Where’d It Go?
D. Master List of Gestures & Keyboard Shortcuts

As with all the Missing Manuals, the book is on the Missing Manuals web site. It has links to all the sites, software, and white papers mentioned in each chapter. They are organized by chapter so they are easy to find.

One of the things that is nice about this Missing Manual is that it covers Windows 8.1 WinRT (the book calls this the TileWorld) and Windows 8.1 Desktop in detail, and then proceeds to cover the context in which you will be using both. The book getting online, working with media and pictures, keeping your PC healthy, hardware, and networking. That makes the book a great asset for those people who need to get their devices attached to the rest of the world.

I have been using Windows 8 since Microsoft made the first pre-release available to download in 2011. Until a few months ago I went straight to the desktop and used WinRT for nothing. Then I was assigned to do a Proof of Concept in WinRT. It is moving an old Windows Forms application to WinRT to take advantage of newer technology and add long awaited enhancements.

I have been working on it for a while and have referenced this book often. It has helped me get up to speed on the WinRT ins and outs much quicker than I would have just playing around with it.

Personally I do not like WinRT. There are many features that don't work as advertised or as expected. Being able to validate how something should work with this book has helped me differentiate between things I may be doing wrong, and the things Microsoft just haven't implemented correctly.

An example of one of those things is Sharing using the Share Charm to move data back and forth between applications. Many of Microsoft's own products do not work correctly. The one that has given me the most grief is OneNote for WinRT. It cannot even Share correctly with Microsoft's own products correctly, so trying to get it to work with a custom application is out of the question. This book has helped me reach this and many more conclusions much faster than I normally would without it.

The index is very thorough and laid out really nice. This may seem trivial, but I am currently reading two programming books, and one of them has a horrible index, and the other has none. They are both great books, but they won't be very good references at all.

I highly recommend this book to the user that wants to know how to use all the applications and features included with Windows 8.1. The most amazing thing about this book is how many topics the author covers, and they cover them in detail giving lots of screenshots so you can see what they're discussing.

If you are thinking about buying your first PC or Tablet with Windows 8.1, this book is perfect for seeing what you'll be getting.

If you already own a PC or Tablet with Windows 8.1, this book can definitely help improve your experience using it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Bottom line: If Windows 8 feels strange, buy this book. 17. Dezember 2013
Von G. Mitchell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Pogue's writing style is easy to handle. He jokes about the folks in Redmond despite having a commitment to improving their product by adding his secret "missing" sauce. The general layout is convenient with lots of screen shots that are arranged to be visible from the relevant text. For a book with about 1K pages having a 30 page index and a viii page contents table are great. General subjects are provided on tabs which can be scanned by riffling through the pages... kind of like looking for books in the Bible.

Pogue also jokes about himself commenting that "...it can be done only if you have a really good computer book".

So much of Windows is context sensitive it's no surprise that there are some details missed. For example, explanations of the File (previously Windows) Explorer ribbons don't mention that it is necessary to click on a folder or file to make the ribbon visible. The much touted start button shown on page 208 actually has a different appearance when viewed on Win 8.1 Enterprise.

New words are invented here. Since Microsoft quit using "Metro" to describe the Win 8 GUI Pogue's "TileWorld" is likely to become popular.

Some good ideas from this book are on my to-try list. WindowsToGo from the Enterprise version of Win 8.1 looks like a great way to have a modern OS on a flash drive. Alt-Enter is a neat way to display properties of just about anything that can be selected by a click.

The section on Sound Recorder should include a comment about the illegality of recording conversations in many jurisdictions.

One item that I wanted to see discussed more is the abysmal backup capability provided with Win 8. File history works (barely) but the system image is hidden and buggy. Oddly, the system images is found via "Windows 7 file recovery" and it almost works unless you need to do a network backup.
