1. Getting Started > 1.4. Using a Typical KDE Application

Using a Typical KDE Application

Most Linux applications look and behave very much like the applications you use every day in Windows. Even how you launch programs is similar. For example, to launch the text editor KWrite, you would click K Menu All Applications More applications Editors KWrite. This is similar to launching Notepad in Windows: Start Menu Programs Accessories Notepad. Launch KWrite now so you can perform the tasks in this section. Most KDE applications behave similarly to KWrite, so it is a good “starter” program.

KDE application windows contain a title bar, drop-down menus, a toolbar with buttons for commonly used commands, and a work area. In the case of KWrite, the work area is a place to do some typing. In other applications, the work area might be your email or a web page.
