Introducing the Software

The operation of your PC is controlled by two kinds of software:
The Microsoft Windows XP operating system, which displays the desktop
on the monitor and controls your PC's hardware, peripherals, and software
applications.
Software programs that perform specific functions, such as a word processing
program.
Software programs included with the PC may vary by model and by
country/region.

Learning More about Software

Information about using software and about the Microsoft Windows XP operating
system is in the printed manuals and onscreen Help. The Microsoft Windows XP
guide is included with your PC documentation. For Microsoft Windows, you can
also press the Help button, labelled with a question mark icon on your keyboard
(select models only), to open the built-in Help and Support Center, or you can click
Start on the taskbar and then click Help and Support. For help with specific
software, refer to the onscreen Help within the program.

Using the Desktop

The desktop is the work area that appears on the display monitor. It has the
taskbar (along one edge), and shortcut icons that make it easy to find the things
you need.
The taskbar shows the Start button, a button for each open window so you can
switch between programs, and the notification area that includes the time.
A shortcut icon is a small picture that you click to open a folder or start a
program. One icon on the desktop performs a special function; the Recycle Bin
collects files that you delete. You can retrieve files from the Recycle Bin until you
empty it. When you empty the Recycle Bin the files are permanently deleted.
