How about:

"About Windows"
"Using Windows"
"Windows Basics"
"Getting Started with Windows"
"Stuff Novices Need to Know (MIS need not apply)"

Also, how about breaking your project into two books and putting the
mishmash into it's own tome? However, have you considered that MIS
management might need the basics even more than the non-computer users?
