Chapter 2. Working in Windows NT 4.0 > Working at the Desktop

Working at the Desktop

The most prominent component of the Windows NT user interface is the Desktop. Windows NT uses the concept of the desktop to organize and present your documents and applications. The Desktop in Windows NT is much like the real desktop in your office or home.

Look at your desktop now. You probably see items you work with often, such as a file folder containing information for a project you're working on; different tools, such as letter opener; and probably your phone or fax machine. Your Desktop in Windows NT can contain the same types of items. You can place a folder on the desktop that stores documents you are working with, such as letters to the IRS. This enables you to quickly open the document rather than having to open the application associated with the document first. Also, you can keep a tool right on your desktop, such as your e-mail reader, giving you quick access to mail you send and mail sent to you.
