    I took the liberty to email you the guide. However, in order for you to download future guides yourself, would you please provide some more details?

    How did you try to download the guides?

    What you need to do is go to the MakeUseOf Facebook page, Like the page, then you can access the tab with all the guides (sidebar: ALL MakeUseOf Guides) and download them.

    So do you see the tab with the guides in Facebook?
    What happens when you try to download one?
    Which browser are you using?

      The answer to this question is, almost always, right-clicking the file and then clicking "Save As". The problem is almost always that the end-user is using Firefox, and their PDF plugin is corrupt. Saving the file directly to disk bypasses this.

      In the future, the right-click, save as instructions will be beside all downloads.

      Good choice, by the way: Windows On Speed is really great.
