If you "upgraded" to Windows 10 on a (rhymes with 8-B) flagship computer (glorious bird rising from it's ashes) originally loaded with Windows 7 (Pro), or many other 5+ year "old" 7 & 8 computers...
then "Windows 10 Plain & Simple" is a contradiction in terms.
Please understand, this is not a critique of the book!
It was thorough and comprehensive in explaining the OS's features and capabilities....
I guess.
It just didn't help me. Nor did the other Windows 10 manuals.
This is just a warning to the growing number of poor souls in the above community, hoping this book will provide some understanding......
to ease the frothing-at-the-mouth, hell-on-earth-nightmare wrought by switching to Windows 10......
after naively succumbing to Microsoft's "upgrade or else" tactics.
Just an FYI: While desperately searching for a remedy to a crippling problem, should you too encounter a Windows-10-Tech reply in their "Feedback Hub" forum claiming "rest-assured! We're placing an especially-high priority on fixing this particular problem!" ......
that dates back to over two years ago, with no new entries since........
then it is time, my salvage what meager vestiges of rationality may remain from your depleted surrender of all hope & trust.......
and go MAC.

A great little book, with BIG info regarding Windows 10, which looks like Win 7 but has all the apps and features in different places. That's where I found reading this book extremely helpful.
