Lesson 1. Introducing Windows 98 > Starting Windows 98

Starting Windows 98

Windows 98 should start automatically every time you turn on your computer. When Windows 98 starts it prepares your computer for use, a process called booting the computer.

Next you'll see a log on dialog box. This dialog box contains either two or three text boxes. The User Name box should already contain your name or the name under which your computer is presently registered. The box marked Domain, if it's there, should also be filled in already with the name of the domain your system administrator wants you to use. The box marked Password should be blank, except for a blinking cursor. Type your password and press Enter. (If you are part of a network and don't know what your password is, consult your network system administrator.) As you type, Windows inserts asterisks into the Password box. These aren't the characters you're actually typing—they just represent the fact that you are typing characters, in case anyone is peeking over your shoulder.
