Create Shortcuts to Your Favorite Programs

One way to start a program is to double-click the icon for its executable file. To begin working with Microsoft Word, for instance, you could open the My Computer window, double click the icon for your drive C icon, then the Program Files folder, then the Microsoft Office folder, and finally the Office10 folder. Then you’d scroll to the bottom of the folder until you find Winword.exe and double-click it.

Yikes! Your index finger will wear out in no time if you have to do that much clicking every time you want to start a program.
