This 2-volume bundle includes all LangaList Plus columns published in 2014.

For many years, Windows Secrets’ paid subscribers have relied on Fred Langa’s extensive knowledge of Windows PCs to answer their sometimes simple, sometimes daunting, personal computing questions and problems. The weekly LangaList Plus columns contain a wealth of information for both novice and expert PC users.

Although Fred’s solutions typically apply to readers’ specific queries, the answers nearly always assist many other LangaList Plus readers as well.

Windows Secrets readers often tell us they archive Fred’s columns for current and future reference. So as a service to his loyal readers – and for those new to LangaList Plus – we’ve gathered the entire collection of 2014 columns into two ebooks.
