Because of media information and the popularity of the Internet, many first time users and seniors are becoming more interested in computers. The demand for senior computer instruction is basically the result of people retiring before computer use in the workplace became common or retiring from jobs where computer use was not emphasized. A different approach is presented in this book revealing hidden programs and utilities that every first time user would want to know, and unlocking hidden codes that first time users can use to maintain and fix any and all problems that may come up with their computers using the MMC, CMD, Explorer Shell and other built-in utilities.

Not Just Another Computer Book


Alfonso J. Kinglow



After reviewing many computer books over the years, I discovered that they all assume that the reader’s have some basic knowledge of computers and that they understand the entire computer lingo’s that are used. All of their assumptions are wrong, and lead sometimes to misconceptions.

Almost all of the computer books I reviewed did not have, or did not include basic computer terms used, or did not explain the meaning of some basic computer concepts.

This book assumes nothing, and tries to present basic computer information in a plain and simple format, which includes some hidden features and commands that all users should know; but are not published. These hidden features are basic information built into the hardware and software that are in the public domain; but are not considered important enough for the readers to know.

This book gives the user a complete knowledge of computer hardware and software and current related standard’s up to date.

An emphasis is placed on current and new standards that applies to new technology today, and why they are important. We review the current Wireless standard (802.11 bgn) and the new standards ac and ad.

We also explain the defacto standards that are used in today’s technologies.

This basic knowledge help’s the reader to understand why some hardware and software features that are used operate the way they do, and explains the difference between standards related to computer networks, hardware and software.

The material presented provides an in-depth of introductory computer subjects; which includes how to use computers, how to access information and data on computer networks and the Internet World Wide Web, and hidden features and commands embedded into your computer hardware and software.

The objectives of this book are to:
