Description and Table of Contents


Now, the three minds behind DOS 4.0 tell you how to get the most out of this exciting new development. This book has been written by the IBM staff members responsible for the contents, architecture and design of DOS 4.0. These experts take you far beyond the user's manual with insider's tips and techniques for getting more power and greater versatility from your PC. As a beginner, you'll find out how to do practically everything through the new user shell with pull-down menus, windows, and help screens that step the user through basic DOS services. Using either keyboard or a mouse, you'll be able to find files, copy them, rename them, move them between directories or disks, and delete them - all without typing back-slashes, colons, asterisks or other cryptic symbols. Descriptions of the many commands and utilities that are part of DOS are included, as well as tips and techniques that will help make you a power DOS user. The volume has been developed to help business users of PS/2, AT, XT, XT 286, PC and PC Convertible.
