The Absolute Minimum
This chapter explains not only how to start programs but also how to work with common program features such as menu bars and toolbars. In summary, keep these points in mind:
You can start a program using the Start menu or a shortcut icon.
The menu bar enables you to select commands. Click the menu name to display the menu and then click the command you want. You may be prompted to select additional options for the command in a dialog box. Make your selections and click the command button (usually OK).
Other methods for selecting commands include keyboard shortcuts, shortcut menus, and toolbars.
When you are finished working in a program, save your work (covered in the next chapter) and then exit the program. You can exit using the File, Exit command or by clicking the program window's Close button.
