  • Most functions in Windows are activated by clicking or double-clicking an icon or a button.

  • All the programs and accessories on your system are accessed via the Start menu, which you display by clicking the Start button.

  • Use My Computer to manage the main components of your system.

  • Use My Documents to manage your document files and folders.

  • Use the Control Panel to manage Windows' configuration settings.

  • When you can't figure out how to do something, click the Start button and select Help and Support.
