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

    Win98 2nd Edition fixes half-baked Win98 1st Edition hypeOS

    I don't buy 'bleeding-edge' operating systems and softwares anymore unless they've been out on the market for at least 3 months. Historically Microsoft has been so eager to make sales that most of their products have been released half-baked & the customer winds up risking invaluable data by installing them, wasting hours of time diagnosing problems that can't be fixed by an end user, and investing a significant amount of money in hemorroidal ointments. The 2nd Edition of Win98 is what the 1st Edition of Win98 should have been (in fact, it's what the 1st Edition of Win95 should have been). The 1st Edition of Win98 was garbage; a lot of hype, a lot of stuff most people remove once installed, and a total pig on system resources. This 2nd Edition is stable enough to risk upgrading from Win95 for production and home stations and has enough fixes in it to warrant its price. One recommendation: if you can avoid it, don't buy the Win98 2nd Edition Upgrade as it's buggier than... 3/5 joseph a. williamson - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Windows DE (Disappointing Edition)

    During the installation process for Windows ME (I was upgrading my laptop from 98) I was presented with a myriad of screens telling me how great Windows ME was and how much change was influenced by "customer requests" and issues from their support department.Ironically, after the install completed and machine rebooted, Windows ME greeted with the infamous "blue screen of death".After spending a couple of hours using the diagnostic tools packaged with ME and troubleshooting the problem, I was finally able to get my system up and running.After using ME for a couple days, here are the cold hard facts as I see them. This is a patch to 98, this is not an upgrade. It contains a lot of multimedia extras that are available from Microsoft's download site. The OS performance was not noticeably improved to me in any area. The startup process seemed faster by maybe 5 seconds tops on my 400mhz Pentium.The price of ME hardly justifies the added... 2/5 "bezeert" (San Francisco, California USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition [Old Version] (CD-ROM) During the installation process for Windows ME (I was upgrading my laptop from 98) I was presented with a myriad of screens telling me how great Windows ME was and how much change was influenced by &quot;customer requests&quot; and issues from their support department.Ironically, after the install completed and machine rebooted, Windows ME greeted with the infamous &quot;blue screen of death&quot;.After spending a couple of hours using the diagnostic tools packaged with ME and troubleshooting the problem, I was finally able to get my system up and running.After using ME for a couple days, here are the cold hard facts as I see them.

    3 stars is probably a bit too generous!!!

    Ok where to begin with Microsoft's newest P.O.S.? I had the chance to start running Microsoft Windows Me a few months ago, and I jumped at the shot. I was really happy to finally get a new OS on my machine. Let me begin by letting everyone know what I am running now. I have a custom built machine, by myself. It is a Cerleron 566 overclocked to 850Mhz on an Abit Rev.II motherboard, 128mb RAM, 100 gigs of Hard drive space, Road Runner cable (not so) high speed internet access, Turtle Beach: Santa Cruz soundcard and a Matrox G200 Mystique 8mb video card. Ok I'll put it this way, Microsoft's Windows ME does not let me use my computer to its best of performance capabilites. Win Me is slow and it looks like a direct rip off of Windows 2000. Well not that, that is a bad thing, Win 2k is at least a stable operating system that is powerful (to say the least). Windows ME just runs about as fast as a turtle, and it is system resource hungry. I constantly have to restart... 3/5 John Besse (Florida) - See all my reviews, September 26, 2000

    How did Microsoft dare...

    ...to release such a bad operating system.When I ordered my brand new computer with Windows Millennium Edition, I actually thought that is was a good idea. Oh boy, I was so wrong. The thing that persuaded me to buy it was the multimedia home-oriented goodies that after all proved to be totally useless. Believe me, you don't want to spend 200 dollars in this OS only for Windows Media Player and the Movie Maker and stuff, the latter is awfully horrible.This OS is, as I'm sure you've read, the worst Windows ever released (and that will ever be released!).I'm going to tell you about some of my problems with WinME. For some reason, it just has an EXTREMELY serious unstability problem. And I really mean that. And even though boot time is fast, I admit that (like 20 seconds or so), I'd rather wait 2 minutes in boot time but not have my PC crash about once every 30 minutes. For real. I find myself stuck hitting Ctrl+Alt+Del way much more than I should, and sometimes, the... 1/5 0, April 16, 2002

(Misc.) I have an older home with rickety windows and only wanted something to take the humidity out. This installed easily and has cooled my bedroom, living room and kitchen. I shut the other 2 bedrooms since they are not in use right now and have a fan in the entrance to my bedroom to get the air to the l/r and kitchen. This little thing is AMAZING. It not only gets out the humidity, but my house is cool. I had to turn it up to 77 since I don't like it really cold. I started it at 72 to cool initially and it did within 2 hours. Plus, it's Energy Star rated and doesn't get better than that. Highly recommend. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, June 28, 2012

    Hello!I was hesitant to write a review within the first few weeks of usage because I wanted to make sure I had a full season of usage before posting a review. You might notice that many of my reviews on Amazon are truly less than five stars. It is also worthy to note that I have this unit installed in a 12x15 bedroom on the second floor of an uninsulated 1947 colonial house in Connecticut.In short, I can say that I find this unit to be well-built. I previously owned a 9000BTU Frigidaire unit. That Frigidaire unit did an acceptable job, specific to cooling power, but it was too loud. Then, after doing some revised math, I purchased a 5000 BTU Sharp unit to cool the same square footage. That Sharp unit did a similarly acceptable job in cooling our room but it was almost just as loud as the Frigidaire unit. My quest at that point was to purchase a 5000BTU unit that was similar in quality to the two above listed units but quieter.So I did some... 5/5 Jason Barnes (New England USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This review is from: Keystone KSTAW05A 5,000 BTU 115-Volt Window-Mounted Air Conditioner with "Follow Me" LCD Remote Control. (Misc.) If you are looking for an air conditioner for a small-medium sized room with maximum functionality, I think this AC should be your best bet. Best thing is it comes with a remote control which may not seem like a big deal at first but if you are using it in your bedroom especially, it makes a big difference. The cooling effect is really good. Cools up to 62F and has climate control. Itt is a life saver from the scorching heat outside. It was also very easy to install, I did not need the anyone's help to get it installed to my window. Also, to help better seal the areas around the edges, I would recommend getting a high density foam tape which costs about $5.
