Chapter 3. Turn on Your Pavilion: You're... > A Bounty of Computer Productivity

A Bounty of Computer Productivity

Starting up your HP Pavilion is like opening a treasure box filled with some very cool things. There are programs you can use to play music, write documents, calculate, and play games. You'll find media samples from music to video that you can get creative with. There are Web browsers and email programs and multimedia players. To help you discover all those programs, here's somebody you should know . . .

Meet the HP Tour Guide

When you first turn on your HP Pavilion, the Windows XP desktop appears. Windows XP is what drives all the programs on your computer, and the desktop is Windows' home base. Icons on the desktop (see Figure 3.1) represent shortcuts to often-used programs (and you can add more, which you'll learn about in the next chapter). There's a little Recycle Bin, which is where deleted files go. There's also a Start menu, which you can use to access computer controls, software programs, and documents you create.
