With Windows 8, Microsoft completely reimagined the graphical user interface for its operating system, which now runs on both desktop PCs and tablets, but the overhaul was not without hitches and its dueling UIs (one designed for touch, the other for keyboards and mice) created significant confusion for users. Windows 10 (a free update to users of Windows 8 or Windows 7) fixes a number of the problems introduced by the revolution in Windows 8 and offers plenty of new features along, such as the new Spartan web browser, Cortana voice-activated “personal assistant,” new universal apps (that run on tablet, phone, and computer), and more. But to really get the most out of the new operating system, you’re going to need a guide.

Thankfully, Windows 10: The Missing Manual will be there to help. Like its predecessors, this book from the founder of Yahoo Tech, previous New York Times columnist, bestselling author, and Missing Manuals creator David Pogue illuminates its subject with technical insight, plenty of wit, and hardnosed objectivity for beginners, veteran standalone PC users, new tablet owners, and those who know their way around a network.

  1. Another superb Missing Manuals book. I have read Windows books from this author since Windows 7 and they were critical for Windows 8, 8.1 and especially 10. David Pogue’s writing style is a pleasure to read.

  2. I buy the Missing Manual for every new version of Windows. It is good for beginners but also for the advanced user who wants to delve into all aspects of Windows 10 and go deeper.

  3. I found the “Windows 10, the missing manual” to be extremely helpful and (a real bonus) delightful to read. It opens up many, otherwise hidden, treasures about this new version of Windows in easy-to-understand explanations. It goes into as much depth as most anyone but the most rabid techies could ask for (at over 670 pages who has the time or the interest?).

  4. Although this book is exhaustive, it is easily understandable by the average user. Of course, I expected that; I’ve owned several “Missing Manuals”.
