Update May 2017

A May 2017 Microsft security update for Windows 10 conflicted with a major routine in FileBoss resulting in FileBoss not starting on some Windows 10 systems.

Versions V3.101 and later, fix the problem. You can read more about this at the page

PDF Manuals

PDF Getting Started Manuals

The Getting Started manual is an overview of what FileBoss can do for you and how to get it done. For those unacquainted with FileBoss it provides an introduction that is organized with the first time user in mind.

For experienced users it is a great way to find out how to use FileBoss to a better advantage.

The manual is loaded with screen shots to make understanding painless and to enable scanning of the topics easy.

Both manuals are two megabytes.

    Getting Started (Best for printing one sided and reading on the computer)

    Getting Started - 2Up (Best for printing double sided) 

PDF Main Manuals

FileBoss's main manual (everything except context help for dialogs) is available in PDF format. Both of the following downloads are the same in content. The only difference is that the second is formatted for two-sided printing.

Both manuals are just under 2 megabytes and are 235 pages including the Table Of Contents and Index.
