Chapter 5. Using the Windows 2000 Interface > Parts of the Windows 2000 Screen

Parts of the Windows 2000 Screen

At this point, you should be booted and signed in. Now the Windows 2000 starting screen (called the Desktop) appears, as shown in Figure 5.4. Take a look at your screen and compare it to the figure. If you're used to the Windows 3.x desktop, this is quite different. You don't have the Program Manager (or File Manager) to run your programs from but instead have an interface that emulates a physical desktop and office a bit more.

Your screen might look a bit different from the one shown in the figure, but the general landscape will be the same. You may see a Welcome to Windows 2000 box, accompanied by music and an optional tour of Windows, or get some help about Windows. Just click the close button (the X in the upper-right corner) to close the Welcome box. We'll discuss the Help system and the Windows tour later. When you close the Welcome box, it will ask you whether you want to see it every time you boot up and log on. That's up to you. Click Yes or No. If you find it a nuisance, click No, but you might want to click Yes so that it runs the next time you start up your computer. You can always turn it off later.
