Chapter 1. Getting Started with Windows XP

1. Getting Started with Windows XP

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

This chapter and the next one get you up and running and introduce you to Windows fundamentals. 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 becoming a power user.
