Part IV

Customizing and Upgrading Windows 8


In this part . . .

When your life changes, you want Windows 8 to change with it, and that’s where this part of the book comes in. Here’s where you discover the Windows 8 Control Panel, which lets you change nearly everything but your computer’s disposition.

Chapter 13 describes easy click-through tune-ups you can perform to keep your computer in top shape, backed up, and running smoothly. If you’re sharing your computer with others, you discover how to dish out user accounts to each of them, with you deciding who can do what.

Finally, when you’re ready to buy that second (or third, fourth, or fifth) computer, a chapter walks you through linking them all to create a home network, where they can all share the same Internet connection, printer, and files.
