6.6. Closing Documents

You close a document window just as you'd close any window, as described in Chapter 3: by clicking the close box (marked by an X) in the upper-right corner of the window, by double-clicking the Control-menu icon just to the left of the File menu, or by pressing Alt+F4. If you've done any work to the document since the last time you saved it, Windows offers a "Save changes?" dialog box as a reminder.

Playing Favorites

Most people think of Favorites as Internet Explorer's version of "bookmarks"—a list of Web sites that you've designated as worth returning to. But Windows XP lets you designate anything as a favorite—a folder you open often, a document you consult every day, a program, and so on.

You can designate a particular icon as a Favorite in any of several ways. For example, in the Save As or Open dialog box of Microsoft Office programs, you can use the Add to Favorites command. In a desktop window (Windows Explorer, for example), you can highlight an icon and then choose Favorites→Add to Favorites.

Later, when you want to open a Favorite icon, you can do so using an equally generous assortment of methods: choose from the Start→Favorites menu (if you've created it as described in Section 2.16); choose File→Open (from within a program) and click the Favorites folder or icon; choose from the Favorites menu of any desktop window; and so on.
