Preface

Preface

Use an operating system day in and day out, and you're sure to become intimately familiar with it, reaching one of three states: love, hate, or mere tolerance. When you have to switch to a new operating system or new version, or even just try to use features you've never used before, that state can certainly change. Sometimes the problem and its solution are simple; sometimes they are not.

Windows 2000 Quick Fixes targets a selection of common problems, first-time tasks, and infrequently used features and provides quick and (usually) simple solutions to those issues. New users and users who are experienced but not familiar with the Windows 2000 interface will find tips on customizing a wide range of operating system parameters that control everything from the way the desktop looks and functions to how the operating system does its job behind the scenes. Users of all levels will find quick and concise instructions that address problems and features in many areas of Windows 2000, including hardware and software configuration, security, networking, remote access, and a range of other features and functions.

Like most computer books, Windows 2000 Quick Fixes isn't meant to be read from front cover to back (surely no one is that much of a masochist). Instead, the book provides chapters covering specific topic areas, each with simply stated problems and concise instructions on how to work through the issue. You can find a topic quickly when the need occurs and turn to that section, working out a solution in a matter of minutes. Windows 2000 Quick Fixes assumes you have a solid computer background, are comfortable using a computer, and have a relatively high level of confidence in your computer skills. This book won't teach you how to use every feature in Windows 2000. Rather, it focuses on specific problems and features that you may be aware of but aren't sure exactly how to deal with. As you browse the book you're sure to run across solutions you already know, but read anyway—you might find a simpler solution or one that better fits your need.
