Step by step, McFedries shows you how to easily organize and manage all your digital photos, music, and movies. You'll learn great new ways to work, learn, and play online...how to safely use Facebook and other social networks...and how to keep your computer secure and private. McFedries even teaches simple PC troubleshooting skills that could someday save you hundreds of dollars in repair costs! Why should kids have all the fun?
