Whatever version of Windows you're using (including Windows 10) you'll likely need to maintain compatibility with older software that the company must use for mission-critical operations, or older hardware that's required for specific purposes, but you don't want to sacrifice security for the sake of compatibility. In this briefbook you'll learn how to maintain optimal compatibility with the older software and devices that you need to use. The authors are well-versed in training in classrooms and video, with Andrew Bettany running the IT Academy at the University of York, and IT Masterclasses and Mike Halsey being a teacher, tech-book author, and having produced many tutorial videos under the brand PC Support.tv."@en ;
