Chapter 4. Using the DOS Shell > Using the Program List

Using the Program List

In addition to providing an alternative DOS interface to the command line, the DOS Shell also provides a convenient method for running all the other programs stored in your computer. A program that performs this function is sometimes called a menuing program. The Shell's program list area provides menuing capability.

Items listed in the program area of the DOS Shell window fall into two categories: program items and program groups. A program item starts a specific software application on your hard disk; a program group is a collection of program items or other program groups.
