Working with Icons

Now that you know what the various icons on your Desktop look like, it's time to find out what you can actually do with them. After all, these icons—combined with your mouse pointer—are the gateway to opening documents, arranging files, and the like.

Selecting Icons

Before you can do anything with an icon, you first have to select it. Once an icon is selected, you can apply a menu command to it, move it, or open it using the mouse.

You have two other, often more useful, ways to select icons, especially when you want to select more than one.
