About These Arrows

Throughout this book, you’ll find sentences like this one: “Open the My Computer C: Windows folder.” That’s shorthand for a much longer instruction that directs you to open three nested folders in sequence, like this: “On your hard drive, there’s an icon called My Computer. Open that. Inside My Computer, there’s a folder for your C: drive. Open that. Inside your C: drive is your Windows folder. Open that.”

Similarly, this kind of arrow shorthand helps to simplify the business of choosing commands in menus, such as File New Window, as shown in Figure P-1. You’ll also see this arrow notation used to indicate which tab or pane of a dialog box you’re supposed to click: “Choose Tools Options General,” for example.
