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

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.

    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 | Unlimited Devices | 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 | Unlimited Devices | 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 | Unlimited Devices | 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

This review is from: iAnder USB Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter(Class 2 Smart Ready)High Speed - Compatible with Windows 8 / Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit) / Me / 2000 / 98 / Vista / XP For Computer, Laptop, Cell Phones, Printer, Headphone, Audio, iPhone, iPod (Electronics) If you are using Windows 8.1 (64-bit) DO NOT install the drivers from the cd-rom that came with it. It will never pair with your devices. My advise BEFORE plugging this is to UNINSTALL your current/existing Bluetooth drivers (if any) by going to CONTROL PANEL -- PROGRAMS -- PROGRAMS & FEATURES. Then Restart your computer. Go back to the Control Panel and make sure that the old/existing drivers has been removed and does not show up. Go to the Device Manager and make sure that NO Bluetooth devices are showing up. When it's all clear, make sure you are connected to the internet, then plug the iAnder USB Bluetoth 4.0. Let Windows 8.1 automatically install the drivers. Now pair your devices (keyboards, mouse, etc). It works flawlessly for me after I removed & cleaned out the existing and old Bluetooth drivers. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, February 13, 2015

This review is from: 688i Hunter Killer - Windows 7 Vista & XP Compatible (Computer Game) Item was stated to be compatible with Windows Vista and Win 7 as well as earlier systems. It's not and was known to be so. The game functions fairly well except that there are NO sound effects or "crew voices" though the intro music plays. Aside from "atmosphere" the lack of "crew communication" makes the game almost imposssible to play.Contacted tech support at the game's distributor who immediately replied that it was a known problem and that there was no patch to correct it (In other words... TS).Emailed a request for assistance to the company that made the game and as of this date, some 4 weeks later have no response.Thoroughly disenchanted with folks that KNOW there's a defect and do not advise the potential buyer that the product won't come close to performing as it should. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, November 27, 2011

    Still One of the Best Sub-Simulation Games Ever

    I believe this is still one of the best submarine simulation games ever. It takes some learning, and thankfully the (soft) manual that comes with it (both accessible on the CD-ROM as well as from within the game) is quite thorough and gives you a real feel for submarine operations.I myself used to work on a cruise liner, and am trained in both helm and radar. Plotting tracks and computing heading and speed of another vessel using radar is vary similar to doing so with sonar -- only with sonar, you only have DIRECTION to work with (radar gives you distance as well). This makes this game particularly exciting for me, because I'm an engineer type of person and love the math associated with this stuff -- though you don't need math in this game, because the excellent target tracking display helps you estimate distance, speed and heading by matching lines up with a very useable record of what direction the sound was heard in from which sound sensors.

    readable, few topics in depth, good insight into GUI

    With Windows XP soon upon us, please pity the few hundred thousand ME users who are stuck with a dead-end OS. ME was really only a stopgap solution, a way to implement new features in Win 98 while Microsoft worked on XP. Some of these features included system restore, an image viewer, better multimedia and better hardware support. ME inherited a lot of Win 98 stuff while being new enough to force users to pay for software updates (including Photoshop, Norton Anti-Virus and Home Site).Typically, a first release of a OS is buggy, and after a few years, it really becomes robust and useful. But after XP is released, it is unlikely that consumers will buy ME anymore or that OEM manufacturers will ship computers with it. It also is unlikely that Microsoft will release a service pack, now that its efforts are focused on XP. That means that the people unfortunate enough to have bought consumer PC's during the intervening year will be using a legacy OS with diminishing support for... 4/5 Robert Nagle "idiotprogrammer (idiotprogramme...

    Very good for help, tips and explanations

    0 5/5 Justo S. - See all my reviews This review is from: Windows Me Annoyances (Paperback) This book will not explain the meaning of all those error messages, but instead will give you solutions for them. It has detailed information on Windows registry, hardware updating, interface customizing and so on. Maybe one chapter is indispensable to read (the registry), but in most cases, you'll get directly the solution for your problem, without having to read a whole chapter; however, just read it as a textbook and you'll understand a lot about your system. Most tips and solutions work for the generic W9x (95, 98, 98 2Ed) and some even for W2000. Anyway, the book explains the differences (if any) between WME and the former. One recommendation: Try one solution or tip at a time, otherwise Windows will not let you know how well are you working. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, September 20, 2001
