Part 2: Working with Windows XP > Working with Programs

Chapter 35. Working with Programs

Obviously, the steps you take to alter a digital photograph in an image-editing program are different from those you take to write a letter in a word-processing program. Likewise, two competing word-processing programs may have subtle differences in the way they work. But most Windows programs have some similarities. That's good, because once you've learned to use one, the rest are a lot easier to master. It also makes transferring data between programs a much simpler task.

No matter what program you're using, there are a few basic tasks—things like creating, opening, saving, printing, and closing files; moving, copying, and deleting parts of files; and exiting the program—that you'll always need to do. The steps covered in this chapter are likely to be the same or nearly the same with almost all of the programs you use. In some cases, you may click an icon instead of selecting a command from a menu, but most programs offer both and let you choose.
