Chapter 5. Using the Windows 2000 Interface > Running Your Applications

Running Your Applications

If you're just upgrading from Windows 9x, you already know how to run applications, how to switch between them, and how to manage them. If you're upgrading from Windows 3.x, however, the procedures for launching programs are a bit different from what you're used to, and you'll need a quick primer to get up to speed. Even though your programs, themselves, may work very much the same way under Windows 2000 Professional as they do with Windows 3.x, how you get them going differs. This is because the Program Manager, although available, isn't at the heart of Windows 2000 the way it was in Windows 3.x and NT 3.x.

Note

To run Program Manager, click Start, Run, and enter progman.exe. You'll have to manually add program groups, programs, and documents to your program groups. They're not migrated into Program Manager as you install programs. This is discussed in more detail in the section "Running a Program from the Program Manager."
