WindowsTips Annual Archives

Summary: WindowsTips is a weekly newsletter that provides tips on how to effectively use the latest Windows operating systems. At the beginning of every year we put together an archive of all the tips published the previous year.

WindowsTips Annual Archives

Thousands of people currently benefit from receiving a free issue of WindowsTips on a weekly basis. Past issues of WindowsTips are available in our convenient WindowsTips annual archives. Imagine having your own enhanced archive of WindowsTips to use at any time! Imagine how much you will learn with all that information at your fingertips!


Each download volume of the WindowsTips archives includes the following valuable items:

  • The original issues of WindowsTips (in plain-text format).
  • Individual tips organized by subject in an electronic book, in PDF format.

The electronic book version of WindowsTips is especially helpful. The book is provided in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. In this format you enjoy the following features:

  • Updated content not originally in the electronic newsletters.
  • Screen shots that illustrate what you see on your screen as you follow the step-by-step instructions.
  • The ability to view, search, and print the book.
  • The ability to select and copy sections of text.
  • Hyperlinks to internal content (in the book itself) and referenced resources on the Web.

If you purchase an archive on CD-ROM, you get everything that is in the download (above), plus you receive two versions of the archive e-book in Microsoft Word format. One version works with the newest versions of Word (DOCX format) and the other works with older versions (DOC format). Both Word versions contain the exact same content as in the PDF version. The Word versions are not provided with the download because they would make the download file too large.

Both the Word-formatted and PDF versions are suitable for printing and maintaining your own book of WindowsTips.
