Using the Mouse

You use the mouse to perform many actions in Windows NT and in Windows applications. With the mouse, you can easily select an icon, folder, or window, among many other things. Selecting involves two steps: pointing and clicking. You can also open icons and folders by double-clicking them, and you can move an item by clicking and dragging that particular article.

To point to an object (icon, window title bar, and so on), move the mouse across your desk or mouse pad until the on-screen mouse pointer touches the object. You can pick up the mouse and reposition it if you run out of room on your desk. To click, point the mouse pointer at the object you want to select, and then press and release the left mouse button. If the object is an icon or window, it becomes highlighted. When following steps in this book, click the left mouse button unless the directions specify otherwise.
