Opening a Window

Generally, windows open themselves when you launch an application or when you open a document within that application.

When you launch an application from the Start menu, from a Windows Explorer listing (discussed in Lesson 10, "Drive, Folder, and File Management Options,"), or by double-clicking its icon on the Desktop, the application responds by opening its own main window. For an application such as WordPad, which comes with Windows 98, the window that pops up will be empty, ready for you to enter data into it and save that data as a document file. But for more sophisticated applications such as Word 97, that empty document window might be contained within the application's main window.
