Chapter 2. The Start Menu and Taskbar > Exploring the Start Menu

Exploring the Start Menu

The Start menu lets you access useful software and services, including programs, documents, folders, and commands, while the majority of Windows XP’s files run in the background quietly to support Windows itself and other programs.
