Hour 1. Taking a Bird's-Eye Look at Windows XP > Windows XP Simply Works Better

Windows XP Simply Works Better

Microsoft redesigned the entire Windows interface to produce Windows XP. Windows XP is more colorful than previous editions. Windows XP's user interface is improved to allow you easier access to your programs and data. The icons (small pictures that represent options) and menus and windows have a more modern look to them. You'll enjoy working with Windows XP but if you really like the former Windows Me look, Windows XP enables you to easily change to the more traditional Classic view inside most windows.

As you become accustomed to Windows XP, you'll see that the entire operating system not only is more visual than previous Windows but XP has a similar feel to working on Web pages. With each version of Windows, Microsoft has attempted to tie the Internet more into the operating system's interface. The Internet will continue to play an important role in all computing and the Windows XP's graphical interface provides a Web-like feel.
