Written by a combo of a Microsoft developer and renowned Windows internals expert, this classic guide is now fully updated for the latest releases of Windows 10 up to the 2104 update. As always, it combines unparalleled insider perspectives on how Windows behaves "under the hood" with hands-on experiments that let you experience these internal behaviors firsthand.
