A Window's Menu

Most of Windows XP's windows contain a menu bar. Even non-program windows such as the My Computer window displays a menu bar. You can use the menu bar to close the window, open additional windows, copy, cut, and paste information from one window to another, get help, and even access the Internet for related information. (The Internet's never far away in Windows.)

As you progress over the next 22 lessons, you'll learn ways to use the window menu bar options to traverse windows and to find the information you need. When you select an option from a menu bar, that option's menu opens (drops down) to display a list of actions. For example, Figure 2.7 shows an open View menu. Throughout the remaining lessons, when asked to select View, Details, for example, you will click the View menu bar option and select Details with your mouse or arrow keys.
