Part II: Alphabetical Reference > Windows XP Applications and Tools

Chapter 4. Windows XP Applications and Tools

This chapter provides an alphabetical reference to all of the useful components that make up Windows XP: an encyclopedia of everything you can do with Windows out of the box. Some of the more prominent applications and utilities that come with Windows XP are available through shortcuts on the Start menu, but many useful tools aren't as conspicuous — available only to those who know where to look. What you'll undoubtedly find interesting is the large number of applications that aren't listed in the Start menu or documented in the manual or in most books.

At the beginning of each entry, you'll find all the different methods of launching (or opening) these components, including their locations in the Start menu (if applicable), their executable filenames for starting them from the command prompt, or any other means of accessing the component. See Chapter 2 for an overview of all the ways to launch programs in Windows XP.
