Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
This task-based tutorial geared for the new and casual user of Windows 98 offers full-color visual explanations for the most commonly executed functions and procedures—more than 140 of them! No lengthy descriptions here—just easy-to-follow screen shots that quickly point out exactly where and what to click to complete the task. Lots of colorful graphics and bold-faced commands make it simple. The tasks range from the basics (opening and closing a window, creating and editing documents, etc.) to working with disks, folders, and files; personalizing Windows 98; installing applications; connecting to on-line services and the Internet; using Internet Explorer, the Active Desktop, Outlook Express, reviewing Web channels; and more. Includes a Glossary.
Booknews

First Chapter

Chapter One


Getting Started


Windows 98 is the newest version of Windows. Introduced in 1998, this version includes some new features designed to make your computer easier to use. If you purchased a new computer recently, this is the version you most likely have. You can also upgrade to Windows 98 by purchasing the new version from a retail store or from Microsoft.


You don't need to do anything to start Windows 98 other than turn on your PC. When you turn on your computer, Windows starts automatically, and you see a screen called the desktop. The desktop is your starting point. Here you find the key tools for working with your computer. From your Windows desktop, you can open and switch between applications, search for specific folders, print documents, and perform other tasks. This section covers the basics of working with the desktop.

Task 1: Displaying the Start Menu


The taskbar, located at the bottom of your screen, contains the Start button. Clicking the Start button enables you to start applications, open documents you recently had open, customize settings in Windows, get help, and more. You use the Start button to begin most tasks in Windows.


1. Click the Start button.


2. Click the command you want.


* If you click the Start button by mistake and want to close the Start menu without choosing a command, simply click outside the menu.


Task 2: Opening a Window


Windows 98 displays all its information in onscreen boxes called windows. To work with any of the information on your computer, you must know how to display (or open) these windows. Most windows are represented onscreen by small pictures called icons. You can double-click an icon to display the contents of the window the icon represents.


1. Double-click the My Computer icon.


2. The contents of this icon are displayed, and a button for the My Computer window appears on the taskbar.


* If nothing happens when you double-click an icon, it might be because you did not click quickly enough or because you single-clicked, moved the mouse, and single-clicked again. You have to click twice in rapid succession. A good way to practice using the mouse is to play Solitaire.


* If you have your desktop set up as a Web desktop (covered later in this book), you can simply single-click to open an icon.


Task 3: Closing a Window


You close a window after you finish working with it and its contents. Too many open windows clutter the desktop as well as the taskbar.


1. Click the Close button (the button marked with an x in the top-right corner of the My Computer window).


2. The window is closed, and the button for the window no longer appears in the taskbar.


* The Control menu, located in the upper-left corner of the title bar, contains commands related to the open window, such as Restore, Move, Size, Close, and so on. To dose the window via the Control menu, click the Control Menu icon and then choose Close from the menu. Alternatively, you can press Alt+F4.


Task 4: Minimizing a Window


You can reduce (minimize) a window so that it is still available as a taskbar button, but is not display on the desktop. You might want to minimize a window to temporarily move it out of your way, but keep it active for later use.


1. Click the Minimize button in the window you want to minimize.


2. The window disappears from the desktop, but a button for this window remains on the taskbar.


* You can tell which windows you have open by looking at the taskbar.


Task 5: Maximizing a Window


You can enlarge (maximize) a window so that it fills the entire screen. Doing so gives you as much room as possible to work in that window.


1. Click the Maximize button.


2. The window enlarges to fill the screen, and the Maximize button changes to the Restore button.


Task 6: Restoring a Window


If you maximize a window, you can easily restore it to its original size.


1. In a maximized window, click the Restore button.


2. The window is restored to its original size.


Task 7: Moving a Window


As you add more applications, folders, shortcuts, and so on to the desktops, you'll need more room to display these elements. You can easily move the windows around so you can see all the open windows at one time.


1. To move an open window, point to its title bar. Click and hold down on the mouse button.


2. Drag the window to a new position. You can see the border of the window as you drag. Release the mouse button.

3. The window and its contents appear in the new location.


* Be sure to point to the title bar. If you point to any other area, you might resize the window instead of moving it.
