Example text

Even if you have used these versions of Windows before, I would strongly recommend that you study Chapters 3, 4 and 5 before assuming that your experience with these systems will carry you through. Windows 7 seems to be a much more user-friendly system than Windows Vista and compares very well with the old XP system, but it does many things in a different way and this is what this book is designed to teach you. If you’ve never used any version of Windows before, fear not as this book will provide all the basics you need to get started.

Use the weight of your hand to keep the mouse steady and try moving the mouse using the palm of the hand only. You should see a pointer following its progress around the screen. Move the pointer so that it points to one of the shortcut icons on your Desktop. You need to be quite accurate in the placing of the pointer, as shown by the two images below. It is the very tip of the pointer that determines its position. 24 The target icon will become highlighted when the pointer is in the right place and will lose its illumination when the pointer moves away.

There are, however, a number of decisions that you will need to make before visiting the store: ● First of all there is the type of computer. Laptops are smaller and incorporate the monitor screen and keyboard. They take up less room and can usually be used in different parts of the home. Laptop batteries, which negate the need for a power supply, last longer nowadays but even the best ones will only provide 6–8 hours of use and there is nothing more frustrating than a battery that suddenly dies on you.
