    Configure The Windows 8 "To Work" Options

    I would like to recommend an excellent book on installing, setting up, and tweaking Windows 8 from the point of view of the power user.

    The title is 'Configure The Windows 8 "To Work" Options' by Noel Carboni of ProDigital Software.

    Price is $4.99.

    I have gone through it page by page and item by item. I knew quite a few of the things discussed, but I still learned quite a bit.

    I'll attach screenshots of the chapter pages.

    Thanks Jim:

    I'll get a copy of the book.

    Checked your other links too. Cyber crimes!

    FYI here's a link to Infragard.

    Needless to say the illicit activity is monumental and getting bigger and worse.
