1. Windows Central Question's Avatar
    I am looking for a Microsoft or after market book that covers all of the operations and use (Actually a "Users Manual") for Microsoft Windows 8.1. Is there such a publication and if so where can I look for one. I would like to have a WRITTEN publication so I can refer to it when I need to find how to do something with my phone.

    There's plenty of user guides at the Windows Phone site here:

    Windows Phone 8 | Windows Phone How-to (United Kingdom)

    Check out the "how to" section...

    And of course you have us! Which is even better. Windows Central is the most comprehensive and informative site on the web regarding Windows Phone and all the respective devices. Check out the device specific sections of the forums!

    A written guide for just about any OS would most likely be out of date in short order.
    Remember the old Windows 95\98 for dummies?
    :)

    My first MS Office suite came with a softback manual that probably weighed 2 Kilos.
    I ended up taking extension classes for Office when getting my A+ hardware cert.

    Ahh, the A+ hardware test! I thought it was funny how there were so many questions about dot-matrix printers and CMOS batteries.

    The panel test was no fun for me.
    I failed the first go-round.

    Funny thing...the air force sent me thru a compressed MCSE course.
    I graduated then left the service a few days later.

    Your tax dollars at work

    I passed both hardware and software on the first round, but I took courses that were old-school. My professor knew that the tests included loads of legacy stuff, so he taught us that stuff. I installed Win98 in a virtual machine and bought an external floppy drive just for the old-school hardware/software courses.

    Gee...
    Those were the days.
    Both the wife and I worked for Shugart Associates when they had an assembly facility here in the early 80's.
    Shugart eventually crapped when floppies were replaced by the 3.5 disks.
