Review Text

  • By Mark Murphy on 11 October 2013

    If you're expecting, as I was, reems of registry settings that don't have exposure via the GUI and descriptions of how to tweak them to fine tune Windows, then you'll be very disappointed.If, on the other hand, you need a pocket consultant to explain how and why you should defragment a drive than perhaps this book is for you.The definition of "optimizing" that this book embraces also doesn't meet my expectations. For example, at the front of the book, under the "who is this book for" section it states (amongst others) "developers ...... Who want to optimize core system components"; but then goes on to sections that describe how to rename desktop icons, configure the 3D text screen saver (the one that first appeared in Windows NT 3.5 which predates Windows 95) and how to customise mouse pointers.It also describes flip views as one of the most powerful features of Windows 7. The flip view is what everyone else calls Alt-tab and has used it to switch between running applications since the early 90's. It does go into some detail about things like bcdedit (change boot options) but warns that this advanced and for IT professionals, which suggests to me that this is not who thus book is for.
