I am new to windows 10 so there were some questions that needed answering and this book did help. They were very thorough in their explanation of Windows Defender, security settings and the importance of getting Windows updates.

The two things I did not get answers for were working offline (the closest they came to that was airplane mode) and a few questions about Notepad. Notepad comes with Windows 10 for you word processing or document work. I have had both Vista and XP previously and they were both better than Windows 10 for doing simple things like letters.

I ended up downloading Open Office. It's free and interacts well with Windows 10. If you don't know about it, it's been around for years and is a nice alternative for those of us who cannot afford Microsoft Office.
