Q&A

Q1:When will I have to log on to Windows XP?
A1: If your computer is connected to a network, chances are good that you will have to log on before you can use Windows XP. In a network environment, computers have connections to each other so users have physical access to other people's files. By delegating usernames and passwords, the system administrator assigns protection and privileges to all users on the system.
Q2:Why do asterisks appear when I enter my account password?
A2: Asterisks appear in place of the actual characters that you type so that someone looking over your shoulder cannot steal your password.
Q3:Don't the pop-up ToolTips replace the need for toolbar labels?
A3: When you hide a toolbar's text labels, you make room for more buttons and you get more screen real estate for the window's contents. If you forget what a button is for, rest your mouse cursor on the button without clicking the button, and the ToolTip shows the button's description. The ToolTips don't appear when you display the buttons'text labels. As you grow more familiar with Windows Me toolbars, you won't need the text labels and you'll want to make more room for the rest of your window elements. You can rely on the ToolTips when you need to know what a button does.
