Chapter 1. Getting Started With Windows XP

Chapter 1. Getting Started With Windows XP

When you first meet it, you might think that Windows XP is quite complicated—and you’d be right. But its interface is designed to let you unlock a lot of Windows’ power with a relatively small amount of learning. The secret is to understand the underlying consistency of the ways that Windows works. As you use Windows XP, techniques like switching programs, sizing windows, drag-and-drop, and cut-and-paste will become as familiar to you as typing your own name.

This chapter and the next one get you up and running and introduce you to the fundamentals of Windows. Chapter 3 tells you how to get help with learning and configuring Windows, on or off the Internet. After that, you’re on your way to making Windows your tireless servant and becoming an XP power user.
