What Is All This?

Although you no doubt have collected your own arsenal of workhorse programs to assist you in your daily chores, Windows 2000 Professional, like past versions, comes replete with numerous freebie utility programs to handle common, everyday tasks. These utility programs range from the bizarre to the useful—from pinball and solitaire to streaming video, CD and DVD players, word processing programs, and a calculator, to name but a few. Whether they are intended for entertainment or as daily helpmates for such tasks as jotting down simple notes or making quick calculations, none of these programs require a degree in rocket science to figure out. They are fairly self-explanatory, and it's also likely you've used them before in their previous versions. Therefore, this chapter covers them only briefly, suggests a few tips, and leaves the rest to you and the Windows Help file. This chapter is offered as reference material (listing updates to the utilities in Windows 2000 Professional when applicable) and as a brief introduction to beginners.
