The book provides tips for people using Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. There are currently no plans to release a new book or update the existing one with tips corresponding to Windows 8, according to Jako.
While many people won’t switch to Windows 8 until it’s time to buy a new PC, Jako said, the book is useful to just about anybody who uses a PC.
“You can find answers to most things somewhere, but it takes you a long time to search for it. You go online and you look, you go around in circles and circles and you find it — maybe,” Jako said. “This can sit on your shelf until you have a problem, which you will, and when you have a problem, you can look it up.”
