In this part . . .

The first part of the book explains how to manipulate Windows 8 by poking and prodding its sensitive parts with the mouse or, on a touchscreen, your fingers.

This part of the book finally lets you get some work done. For example, here’s where you find out how to run programs and Start screen apps, open existing files, create and save your own files, and print your work when you’re through.

A primer details the Windows essentials: copying information from one window or program and pasting it into another.

And when some of your files wander (it’s unavoidable), Chapter 7 explains how to unleash Windows’s robotic search hounds to track them down and bring them within reach.
