Office 365 eBookWindows 10 eBookPeriodically, Microsoft makes an assortment
of its publications available for free. Another selection has just been made
available for download and includes free Microsoft eBooks, User Guides,
Deployment Guides, Step-By-Steps, and other publications. The offerings can
be seen and downloaded
at this MSDN link.

There are eBooks in EPUB, MOBI, and PDF format and many shorter documents in
PDF format. Among the eBooks is the new offering, “Introducing Windows 10
for IT Professionals, Preview Edition”. There are many specialized
publications for technology professionals but also starter guides for
Microsoft Office programs such as Outlook, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
Altogether, there are nearly 500 publications.

Here is Dan’s experience downloading a few Windows Ten tutorials.

After visiting the link shown above, I did the following.

1. I was looking for tutorials regarding Wndows ten. So I activated the
find option of IE with the keyboard command of control plus the letter f. I
am using JAWS and System access since that is what on the current computer I
am using.

2. Next I typed in “windows 10″ without any quotes and hit enter.

3. The cursor was placed upon ” Introducing Windows 10 for IT
Professionals, Preview Edition”

4. Directly below the book title are three file types to choose from.


5. I selected the pdf format by arrowing down to it.

6. Next press the application key and arrow down to “save target as.”

7. Hit enter.

8. B=Navigate to where you wish to save the file.

9. Press alt plus the letter s and the file is saved.

10. Most screenreader software read pdf files now. However, if you have
Opened Book, DocuScann, or Kurzweil scanning software on your computer,
those programs will open a pdf file where one can save the file in rtf etc.

Below each publication there the same three choices for formats to download.

How to Connect External Speakers in Windows 10

By Andy Rathbone from Windows 10 For Dummies

To accommodate a variety of speaker setups, Windows 10 includes a speaker
setup area, complete with a speaker test. Most PCs come with only two
speakers. Others come with four, and PCs that double as home theaters or
gaming rigs sometimes have up to eight.

If you’re installing new speakers or you’re not sure your old ones are
working, follow these steps to introduce them properly to Windows:

From the desktop, right-click your taskbar’s Speaker icon and choose
Playback Devices.

The Sound window appears.

Click (don’t double-click) your speaker’s icon and then click the
Configure button.

Click the speaker’s icon with the green check mark, because that’s the
device your computer uses for playing sound. The Speaker Setup dialog box

Click the Advanced tab, then click the Test button (as shown here), adjust

your speaker’s settings, and click Next.

Click the Test button to hear your speakers one at a time.

Windows walks you through selecting your number of speakers and their
placement and then plays each one in turn so that you can hear whether
in the correct locations.

Click the tabs for any other sound devices you want to adjust. When you’re
through adjusting, click OK.

While you’re here, check your microphone volume by clicking the Recording
as well as tabs for any other sound gadgetry you’ve been able to afford.

If your speakers and microphone don’t show up as devices, Windows doesn’t
know they’re plugged into your computer. That usually means you need to
install a new driver.
