Unit 2
Browsing Around the New Windows

Objectives for This Unit

  • Eliminating the default Active Desktop wallpaper
  • Getting around in Windows, as modified by the Active Desktop

Windows changes a lot under IE4. Yet, after you get past the most visible changes, it really doesn't change that much at all.

For one thing, the changes affect only activities you do generally in Windows, either on the desktop, in a folder, or in Windows Explorer; they have no effect at all on what you do inside programs, such as Word or Excel.

For another thing, you'll get used to them pretty quickly (trust me).

Lesson 2-1: Removing that Funky Wallpaper

The icky Active Desktop wallpaper that commandeers your display after you install IE4 is not a functioning part of the Active Desktop. It's just decoration. You can remove it, restoring your original Windows desktop appearance (except for other, subtler changes made by the Active Desktop).

To remove the wallpaper:

  1. On the desktop, find the line "Tell me about Active Desktop" in the lower-right corner.
  2. Click that line just once.

    In a window, a brief description of the Active Desktop opens.

  3. Find the phrase "Click here to restore your original wallpaper" near the bottom of the description window.
  4. Click that line just once.

Lesson 2-2: Learning to Click Again

In the Active Desktop, files, folders, and program icons are links. A link is something that makes something else happen when you click it. When you surf the Web, you click links to get from place to place (see Unit 3). In the Active Desktop, you click links to open files, folders, and programs -- all of the things you used to do by double-clicking file and folder icons.

Look at your Windows desktop now. You can tell that all of the icons on it are now links (see Figure 2-1) because:

  • Their labels are underlined, just the way text links on the Web are underlined.
  • When you point to them, the Windows pointer turns into a pointing finger, which always indicates a link.
  • Depending on your configuration, you may see the underlining at all times or only when you point to the icon.

The change to links affects both the way you open files and folders, and the way you select them when performing activities that require selecting.

After installing IE4, you see link formatting on file and folder icons on your Windows desktop, in folders, and in Windows Explorer (which is the file manager, and not to be confused with Internet Explorer, the Web browser). Whenever you see the link formatting, the techniques described next apply.

However, within your Windows programs, you often will not see the link formatting when working with file icons. When you do not see the link formatting, you simply use the regular Windows techniques you've used in the past.

Opening a file or folder

On a link (or on a file or folder icon that looks like a link), opening the file or folder takes only a single click, not the double-click you're used to, as follows:

  • Single-click a program icon, the program starts.
  • Single-click a folder, the folder opens.
  • Single-click a data file (such as a document), the program that displays or edits that file opens.

Practice single-clicking on your Active Desktop:

  1. Point to My Computer.

    The pointer changes to a pointing finger, and My Computer is highlighted.

  2. Click the mouse button once.

    My Computer opens.

  3. In My Computer, point to the icon for your hard disk (probably C:).

    Observe that the disk icon is a link. Observe also that a handy description of your hard disk now appears on the left side of the folder window. These descriptions appear in all folders when you have the Active Desktop installed.

  4. Click once.

    Icons appear for all of the folders on your hard disk.

  5. Point to any folder, and click.

    The contents of the folder appear.

  6. Point to the X in the upper-right corner of the window, and click to close it.
  7. Open Windows Explorer (choose Programs-->Windows Explorer).

    Observe that all of the folders and files in Windows Explorer appear as links, which you may open by single-clicking.

Q&A session

Question: How come the My folders have that fancy title along the left side of the window?

Answer: In addition to all of the other changes, the Active Desktop enables folders to contain all of the features and formatting of a Web page, including graphics, backgrounds, and more. Initially, you'll see this feature implemented in all folders as a fancy, graphical title. But soon, you'll see much more elaborate application of this feature.

You don't need to do anything differently when you see such formatting, so there's nothing to learn here. Just get used to the fact that folders in Windows are going to start having very individual personalities, thanks to Web formatting. And note that you can display a description of any icon by pointing to it.

Selecting files and folders

When and where icons appear as links, you must not only change your clicking techniques but also change your techniques for selecting objects, highlighting one icon or a group of icons to perform some action, such as copying or moving files. In the old Windows, you single-clicked an icon to select it. But now, single-clicking opens stuff.

Selecting now works like this:

  • To select an icon where icons appear as links, point to the icon and wait a second. After a moment, the icon is highlighted.
  • To select multiple icons, point to one icon to select it; then press and hold Ctrl as you point to each icon that you want to select (see Figure 2-2). When all the icons you want are selected, release Ctrl.

In case you didn't know, pointing to almost anything in Windows and then clicking the right mouse button (not the usual left) displays a pop-up menu of items for dealing with that item. Because you can't accidentally open something by right-clicking it, right-clicking is a convenient and reliable way to perform many activities under the Active Desktop. Try it.

Lesson 2-3: Using the Quick Launch Buttons

Mmmmmmm, that sounds good right now. I am a little hungry. I believe I could go for a Quick Lunch.

Ohhhh...Quick Launch. That's different. I'll wait for supper.

The new buttons in the taskbar are the Quick Launch buttons, all of which do things you can do other ways but not as quickly. The function of each button is made pretty obvious by its appearance, but you can display the name of each button, too, simply by pointing to it and waiting a moment. Figure 2-3 shows the Quick Launch buttons, with the name of one displayed.

The buttons are:

  • Launch Internet Explorer Browser: Opens IE4 (see Units 1 and 3).
  • Launch Mail: Opens Outlook Express for using e-mail or newsgroups (see Unit 9).
  • Show Desktop: Minimizes all open programs and folders to your taskbar so that you can see and use icons on your desktop.
  • View Channels: Opens the list of channels (see Unit 7).

Lesson 2-4: Using the New Folder Toolbars

When you opened My Computer in Lesson 2-2, you may have noticed that its toolbar has changed. Actually, the toolbar on every folder in Windows -- and on Windows Explorer -- has been changed by the Active Desktop so that the toolbar more or less matches the toolbars on the IE4 browser.

Three toolbars are actually in IE4 and in the folders on the Active Desktop (see Figure 2-4):

  • Standard Buttons toolbar: Has the buttons you use for moving among folders on your PC or among pages on the Web.
  • Address Bar: Is a text box in which you type or choose a path and filename to jump directly to a file, folder, or Web page.
  • Links toolbar: Has a group of buttons (called Quick Links) that takes you quickly to certain Web destinations. (You learn about using and creating Quick Links in Unit 3.)

You control which of these three toolbars appear at any given time and the order they appear in, top to bottom.

Turning toolbars on and off

Use the Toolbars menu (see Figure 2-5) to turn each toolbar on or off. To open this menu, choose View-->Toolbars. In the Toolbars menu, checkmarks appear next to the names of toolbars that are already on. Click the name of a toolbar to turn it on or off.

Arranging toolbars

The three toolbars can be arranged in any order, and they can overlap one another.

At the left end of each toolbar, you see a small, vertical bar (see Figure 2-6). To move a toolbar to a new spot in the toolbar area, point to its vertical bar, click and hold, drag up or down to the new position, and release.

To overlap toolbars, you drop one toolbar on top of another. The overlapping toolbars share the same line in the toolbar area. When two toolbars share a line, one appears in full, and the other is mostly hidden, except for its name and its vertical bar. (The Standard Buttons toolbar doesn't show its name; instead, the Back button appears with the vertical bar.)

When two toolbars share a line, you can display one toolbar in full and hide the other in either of the following ways:

  • Double-click the vertical bar on either toolbar.
  • Drag the vertical bar on the hidden toolbar over the other toolbar.

Practice arranging toolbars:

  1. Open a folder, such as My Computer.
  2. Choose View-->Toolbars.
  3. Observe which toolbars are checked, and check any that aren't checked so that all three toolbars appear in the folder (even if two share a line).
  4. Point to the vertical bar in any toolbar.
  5. Click and hold, drag the toolbar to a new position, and release.

Using the Address Bar

In Unit 3, you learn how to use the Address Bar in IE4 to go to a particular Web site. You type the site's address in the Address Bar, press Enter, and off you go. In a Windows folder, you use the Address Bar differently. There you use it like a drop-down directory list, like those used in Windows programs for picking files to edit.

When you click the down arrow at the right end of the Address Bar (or double-click inside the list box), a complete directory of your PC's contents appears (see Figure 2-7). From that list, you can click an entry to open a disk, folder, file, or program.

Using the Standard Buttons toolbar

The buttons in the Standard Buttons toolbar change, depending on whether you're online in IE4 or in a Windows folder. In a folder, the buttons include only those that are useful there.

Back and Forward

These buttons move you back and forth within the list of folders you've just opened or closed.

Suppose you open Folder A, then Folder B, and then Folder C. From the Standard Buttons toolbar in Folder C, you can click Back once to go back to Folder B. Clicking Back twice takes you all the way back to A. After you reach A, the Back button becomes unavailable because there's no "back" left to go to.

Forward undoes Back, moving you forward in the order of folders after you've used Back. After using Back to go all the way back to Folder A, clicking Forward once opens Folder B and clicking Forward twice opens Folder C. After you reach C again, the Forward button becomes unavailable because there's no "forward" left.

When the Back or Forward button is available, a tiny black arrow appears on the right side of the button. Click that arrow, and a list drops down (see Figure 2-8), showing all the folders to which you can go back (or forward). Click an item in the list to go straight to that folder.

Up, Cut, Copy, Paste, Undo, and Delete

There's nothing new about these buttons; they were always on the folder toolbar, even before the Active Desktop. They must have been useful there because Microsoft has paid them the ultimate compliment: carrying them over to the Active Desktop.

In case you've forgotten what these buttons do, here's a refresher. (If you never knew what these buttons did, you didn't need them, and you still don't. Nobody said you had to know everything about Windows.)

  • Up moves you up one level in the directory hierarchy, the list you can display from the Address Bar.
  • Cut, Copy, and Paste are used to copy or move selected files and folders.
  • Undo undoes the last thing you did.
  • Delete sends all selected files or folders to the Recycle Bin.

Views

Use the Views button to switch among the folder views, just as you always could (and still can) from the folder's View menu. Views determine the way files and folders appear within the folder window (or Windows Explorer). The Views are as follows:

  • Large icons: Files and folders appear in rows of large icons.
  • Small icons: Files and folders appear in rows of small icons.
  • List: Files and folders appear in a list, with small icons.
  • Details (see Figure 2-9): Files and folders appear in a list that includes detailed file information, such as file size and date modified.

Recess

Well, in a few short pages you've adapted to the new ways Windows works in the IE4 age. You can confidently operate stuff that other users will be scratching their heads over for months. It's up to you to decide whether to ease their suffering by telling them how to get around.

While you're deciding whether to let your friends and coworkers sink or swim (Hint: friends swim, coworkers sink), get all of your important phone calls out of the way. You're going online in Unit 3.
