Customizing Your 2-Foot Look and Feel

Clearly, one of the big payoffs for plugging in a Media PC is the capability to work and watch TV—all on the same box, all at the same time. To achieve this marvel of multimedia multitasking, simply start Media Center and select Restore Down (the center icon in the upper right that looks like two windows, one on top of the other). This places Media Center in a movable, resizable window.

Now all you have to do to multitask is start the program you want to use; for example, surf the Web by using Internet Explorer, or check your email by using Outlook Express. Resize the window of the program you are using so that you can see both it and whatever you're watching with Media Center.
