Chapter 14. Using Windows Accessories > Calculating with Calculator

Calculating with Calculator

Like a calculator you keep in a desk drawer, the Windows Calculator is small but saves you time by performing all the calculations common to a standard calculator. The Windows Calculator, however, has added advantages: You can keep this calculator onscreen alongside other applications, and you can copy numbers between it and other applications.

The Standard Windows Calculator, shown in Figure 14.3, works so much like a pocket calculator that you need little help getting started. The keypad, the onscreen representation, contains familiar number keys, along with memory and simple math keys. A display window just above the keypad shows the numbers you enter and the results of calculations. If your computational needs are more advanced, you can choose a different view of the calculator, the Scientific view (see Figure 14.4).
