II. The Components of Windows 2000 > 7. Running Applications

Chapter 7. Running Applications

While it’s true that you need to be able to use your computer’s operating system, the operating system isn’t the reason you have a computer. The operating system is the platform, but the objective is to run programs.

Starting Programs

Windows 2000 Pro lets you start programs in many different ways. You’ll probably use one or two of these methods all the time, and rarely use others:

  • Double-click the program’s icon or shortcut, wherever it may be: in the Windows Explorer window, on the desktop, in a folder, and so on. Or right-click such an icon and choose Open from the shortcut menu.

  • Highlight a program (or program shortcut) icon and then press Enter.

  • Choose the program’s name from the StartPrograms menu.
