Make Sure You Understand Windows Controls

Before getting into specifics of Windows operations in the upcoming hourly lessons, make sure that you have a fundamental grasp of routine Windows operations. As you work with Windows XP, you'll see all kinds of windows appear and disappear.

A Window such as the one shown in Figure 1.7 is sometimes called a dialog box. Dialog boxes contain various controls with which to manage Windows XP. These controls can be command buttons that you click with your mouse to start or cancel a task; check boxes with a check mark, indicating an item you selected by clicking the mouse over the box; and option buttons that you select from a choice of options.
