I. Getting Started > 3. The Desktop and Start Menu

Chapter 3. The Desktop and Start Menu

The first time you turn on a PC after installing Windows 2000 (or after un-packing a new PC that has Windows 2000 preinstalled), you encounter a Getting Started wizard that offers three choices:

  • Register Now. Register your copy of Windows 2000 with Microsoft, so that you’re eligible for exciting new streams of junk mail.

  • Discover Windows. Take a quick tour of Windows 2000 features (you’ll be asked to insert your installation CD).

  • Connect to the Internet. Sign up for an Internet account using the Internet Connection Wizard (see Section 11.1.3).

Once you’re beyond this big hello, however, you encounter the digital vista shown in Figure 3-1, a screen that greets tens of millions of people every morning: the Windows desktop.
