Adding Web Content to the Active Desktop

The Active Desktop represents a key change to the Windows interface Whereas the classic Windows 95 interface uses the desktop simply as a holding area for icons, the Active Desktop treats the entire Windows desktop as if it were a Web page You can still store icons there, but you can also add live Web pages, components written in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), ActiveX controls, and Java applets To see the Active Desktop in operation, look at Figure 30.1
