Quick and Easy Windows is a magazine aimed at Windows users and it has got to be one of the most informative on the market.

If you are a absolute computer novice,this mag will be a means of easy learning about your pc.If you consider yourself a pc expert i almost gauruntee you'll find stuff in the magazine that you did not no about.
Here’s a PC magazine from the respected Future Publishing stable that’s suited to virtually all users of PCs regardless of their level of expertise. What’s so good about this mag? Well, for a start off it’s another ‘Plain English’ mag, so there’s a bonus for everyone because we all hate the technical waffle that goes with computers! Pricewise Quick & Easy Windows comes in at about the normal price of £4.99 & you get some good programs on the cover CDs most of the time. What’s in the mag & why should I buy it? Well, those are good questions that you should always consider before parting with your money. Contentwise Q & EW has the usual run of the mill stuff…letters pages, help pages, tutorials, tips & tricks sections, reviews of hardware & software, competitions & the cover cd. Q & EW are more geared towards helping you fix, maintain & upgrade your PC than the usual PC related magazine is. There’s regular tutorials of how to upgrade PC components, fix problems, hardware & software related & then the tutorials of how to get your PC to run faster & more stable. All this & a lot more besides & all in easy to understand good old Plain English! Any technical waffle is fully explained in the Jargon Buster, which appears wherever there’s tech waffle. I have bought this magazine since issue one & will probably continue to do so for the near future. Yes, I do buy a lot of PC & Internet related mags each month, but then again I really enjoy the content in the mags & I never throw any mags away! I have had to build a special cupboard to house all my mags as I had about 1500 or so at the last count. As for Quick & Easy Windows, it’s basically a good magazine that caters for all levels of expertise & is well worth the cover price of £4.99. You should always have a browse through the mag before buying as it saves a lot of money
in the long run if you do. There’s no point buying something & then realise that it’s of no use to you!
Being an ex-Cross Stitcher before getting my computer, this magazine caught my eye as I used to subscribe to a sister publication called Q & E Cross Stitch, which I found to be a good buy. Quick & Easy Windows turned out to be one of the best computer magazines I have read. It is aimed at new, and more experienced, users but without getting TOO technical. It has a wide variety of articles, ranging from basic Word Processing to Web Sites, all clearly written, with no room for error. An added bonus is the free cover disc, with full programmes and plenty of extras for the more adventurous.
