Navigating Windows 7

  • Joseph Moran
  • Kevin Otnes


In this chapter, you’ll explore the basics of the Windows 7 interface, which is often referred to as the desktop (Figure 1-1). You’ll learn how to use the start menu to run programs, how the taskbar helps you organize and keep track of multiple running programs (and launch new ones), how the notification area provides access to system information and settings, and how to manage open windows.
