Working with Programs in Windows Vista
You can find an enormous number of programs that are available to use with Windows Vista. For example, a word processing program, such as Microsoft Word, enables you to create, edit, and print documents. There are Windows programs for just about anything you can possibly dream of doing on your computer, and probably a few you’ve never thought of. You can use word processing, database management, movie creation and editing, drawing, and other programs in Windows. This variety of programs gives you all the tools you need to perform your work, do everyday tasks, or simply have fun.
In Windows, you can use one of several different ways to start a program; none of them is necessarily better than the other. Which method you use will depend on what you happen to be doing on the computer at the time you go to start up a program.
