Windows Vista – The Pocket Guide [Book of How To’s] is written by Rich Robinson, the creator of, a very helpful Windows Guide website. This free e-book covers the basics of customizing, improving, and organizing your Windows Vista machine. It can be treated both as a reference, when you have a problem and don’t know how to solve it, and a study guide – to deepen the general knowledge about your Windows machine.

It contains many useful tips in the following categories:
– Getting Started
– Backing Up Early and Often
– Security
– System Maintenance & Management
– Increasing Performance
– Working Efficiently
– Personalizing Vista
– Taking Control of Your Files

I am not a Windows user, but I found this e-book very well written, easy to follow & containing just the right amount of technical information (in plain English!).
