Windows Me, The Missing Manual

Creator: David Pogue | 2000-09-08

"Windows ME" is the ideal user's guide for the world's most popular operating system.

Publisher: Oreilly & Associates Incorporated

About this book
Windows Me, the hotly anticipated successor to Windows 98, comes with dozens of important new features. They include a home-networking Wizard; Movie Maker, for creating digital sounds and movies; and self-healing, self-updating software components. But one major failing of Windows remains unaddressed in the Me edition: it comes without a single page of printed instructions. In Windows Me: The Missing Manual,author David Pogue provides the friendly, authoritative book that should have been in the box. It's the ideal user's guide for the world's most popular operating system. The book begins at the beginning: with a tour of the Desktop, the enhanced Start menu, and instructions for customizing the Taskbar and toolbars. There's a special focus on organizing files, folders, and windows for maximum efficiency and minimum clutter. More advanced chapters explore each control panel and built-in application; walk readers through every conceivable kind of configuration (for Internet use, for peripheral equipment, and so on); and guide them in setting up a small network--an essential skill in today's home or small office--including how to share a single Internet connection among several PCs. The book even shows readers how to access one of today's hottest PC features: listening to live radio, or watching live TV, from all over the world, via the Internet. Special appendixes cover more technical ground: the various DOS applications that govern the startup and shutdown process, instructions for installing and updating Windows, and so on. Windows Me: The Missing Manualis a one-stop reference for the professional and consumer Windows user. In keeping with the high standards of the Missing Manual line, the book features superb writing, offers special features for both absolute novices and power users, and covers its topic completely. If Microsoft could close its eyes and wish for the perfect user's guide for its flagship product, Windows Me: The Missing Manualwould magically appear.

    Not worth the money - 98 with a pretty face

    Windows ME just isn't worth the investment. It is just Windows 98 with some added features. The core operating system is still the same, unreliable OS it always was.Let's start by looking at the plus side. The new features are pretty nice. Windows Media Player is much better than its predecessors. Internet Explorer 5.5 is a great browser and not having to download the beast is an added bonus. The auto update feature (while somewhat annoying at times) is much easier than searching the web for the latest software updates. If you feel these features are reason enough to upgrade your to ME, then go for it.As I said, ME still has plenty of reliability problems. It is still possible for a single application to bring down the entire operating system. In my experience it has been rare that I actually get the OS to shut down properly. I have used Linux and NT for years and gotten used to their stability. I had forgotten just how bad the stability of this line of... 2/5 Douglas Welzel (Seattle, WA) - See all my reviews, December 29, 2000

    0 1/5 Steve - See all my reviews This review is from: Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition Upgrade w/ Encryption Coded Software [Old Version] (CD-ROM) Two weeks ago, I carefully installed Windows ME on my computer, replacing the preinstalled Windows 98. That was a mistake. While ME has some nice features and improvements over 98, it left my system more unstable and buggy than it had ever been before. For the record, my computer easily met the system requirements for ME. Anyway, after the upgrade, I found IE 5.5 to be slower than IE 5.01, Media Player 7 was a piece of garbage, my McAfee VirusScan loaded much slower, there were video driver glitches, etc...I had similar hassles years ago when I upgraded another computer from Windows 95 to 98.After the experiences I have had, I do NOT believe in upgrading your PC's operating system. If your machine came preinstalled with Windows 95, 98, or ME, then leave it alone. Putting in a new OS totally upsets the equation and causes innumerable problems. Many of these problems don't develop right away. Also, upgrading your OS often violates your manufacturers warranty. So if you...

    0 1/5 Phil Buglass (Waynesboro PA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Amazon Music with Prime Music [PC] [Download] (Software Download) I cannot see the purpose of a music player where you have to log in with a password every time you want to listen to your music...The final straw came a week or so after I installed the program, having tested it once and never touched it since. My PC was running really slowly, and investigation revealed 2 instances of a process called something like &#34;amazonmusichelper&#34; were running, each taking up nearly 40% of the capacity of my 6-core processor.I don't need help with my music, thank you very much. I certainly don't need or want any program which will activate itself and use up all my CPU cycles, without any kind of permission or notification.The player was uninstalled and trashed. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, August 9, 2013

    0 1/5 J. A. Moriello "swirlnut" (Newark, DE USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Amazon Music with Prime Music [PC] [Download] (Software Download) This product cannot handle a large collection. The older version still has a few problems but at least if you play with it a bit you can get satisfactory results on your PC and great results on your Kindle. When I download the new cloud player for pc it looks like it's working but it does not hold your collection after you shut off your pc and then will NOT allow you to reload your collection. I have started over many times and it only gets worse. Probably works great with 2000 songs, but I need it to work with 60000 songs like the old version does if you've paid the premium. Please advise all members when this obvious problem has been corrected. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, July 8, 2013

    No graphic equalizer. No bass or treble adjust.

    0 2/5 techmannn "techmannn" - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Amazon Music with Prime Music [PC] [Download] (Software Download) I appreciate the slimmed-down functionality of the amazon player, but it has no built-in graphic equalizer. There's not even an option to add or reduce bass or treble as near as I can see. Whether you are on a laptop with ear-buds or a desktop with full speakers, you want to be able to adjust the sound.That is going to be a deal-breaker for some, and perhaps many people. For me, it means uninstalling the amazon cloud player. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, June 25, 2013

    Not worthy of a paid upgrade, but finally stable after several months

    I truly believe that what they do is grab one marginal new feature such as free credit score and package it with the latest set of bug fixes and call it a paid upgrade. It's truly shameful, especially to users like myself that continue to buy it year after year. Most of the time when I review products I think the 1-star reviews are outlier bad experiences, but with Quicken, this is my third year in a row of a terrible experience.Here's the way it went:Day one:Back up everything, twice, just to be sure.

I let Quicken 2015 uninstall v. 2013 and install v.2015, data conversion, etc... The installation appeared to crash when the wizard reaches the "convert your Quicken Cloud data. The only way out is with task manager. I completely removed the v.2015 installation and the data file.The second installation attempt was a clean install. However it crashed at the exact same point.Again, only task manager can terminate the failed installation.After both failed installations, Quicken V.2015 seemed to work except for action under the Mobile tab.Any selections you chose there would crash the program.
