Workshop

The quiz and exercise questions are designed to test your knowledge of the material covered in this hour. The answers are in Appendix C, "Answers to Quizzes."

Quiz

1:Which option enables you to keep the taskbar off the screen until you're ready to use the taskbar?
2:What happens when you right-click over a blank area of the taskbar?
3:What are the two ways to change your PC's date and time?
4:What does it mean to tile windows?
5:How can you make more room for your taskbar when you start a lot of programs at the same time?

Exercises

1:Move your taskbar to each edge of the screen. Determine which is best for you. Remember that you can hide the taskbar with the Auto Hide option if the taskbar consumes too much screen real estate.
2:Locate the Start menu item that contains the Solitaire game. Drag the icon to the left of the game's name to the Quick Launch toolbar. The icon appears on the toolbar so that you can now play the game quickly when you get a chance.

One problem with doing this is that Solitaire will no longer appear on the Games menu. You can drag the icon right back when you're tired of Solitaire, but doing so is rather tricky because you first drag it to your Start button, wait for the Start menu to appear, then drag the icon to the More Programs command; then wait for the menu to appear, and then keep on until you place the icon back on the Games menu. Whew! To save this effort, if, when you first move an icon to your Quick Launch toolbar, instead of using your left mouse button to drag the icon you use your right mouse button, Windows XP asks you if you want to copy or move the icon to the Quick Launch toolbar when you drop the icon there. If you select Copy, the Solitaire icon will appear both on your Quick Launch toolbar and on the Games menu where it belongs.
