By Keith Ward:

Windows is the software that runs most of the world's computers. It can be confusing and intimidating for new users, and frustrating at times for even veteran users. But it can also be highly rewarding and productive once you know and understand it. My goal is to teach you how to use Windows safely and effectively.
