Identifying New Features in Windows XP

Windows XP comes with new features that make your computer significantly easier and faster to use than earlier versions of Windows. Windows XP makes it easier to open files and programs, find information, and accomplish other common tasks, such as send e-mail, browse the Internet, scan and view pictures, play music and videos, and change settings. Windows XP design improvements include a two-column Start menu with frequently-used programs and files, similar windows grouped on the taskbar, a task pane with common commands, and Control Panel icons organized by category. If you share a computer with others, Windows XP makes it easy to create individual accounts with customized settings for each user and provides a Welcome screen that allows you to switch between accounts.

Welcome screen and Fast User Switching

With the Welcome screen, you can share the same computer with family and friends and still maintain privacy and control over your personal files. You can use Fast User Switching to switch between users without having to close each other's programs.
