Chapter 9. Making Windows Work Your Way

Chapter 9. Making Windows Work Your Way

My physical desktop is piled several feet high with papers, books and magazines, letters, pictures, CDs, and computer equipment. My Microsoft Windows desktop, on the other hand, is as neat as a pin, with every icon arranged just so and not an ounce of clutter. I keep my files meticulously organized and I make my icons easy to find, because that’s the way I prefer to work. Whether you’re a compulsive cleaner or a slob, Windows XP can adapt to your style. The more you work with Windows, the more you discover its many different ways to open, work with, and arrange programs and files. In this chapter, I show you how to take advantage of that flexibility by customizing the Windows display, the taskbar and Start menu, and various screen elements to your liking. You’ll also learn how to add fonts and fine-tune (or squelch) the beeps and squawks that are part of the Windows XP experience.
