Starting Windows XP

Windows XP automatically starts when you turn on your computer. When you first start Windows XP, you see a Welcome screen, or a Log On dialog box depending on your installation. The Welcome screen identifies you on a shared or workgroup computer, while the Log On dialog box identifies you on a domain network. After you enter a user name, password, and in some cases a domain name (for large network purposes), you see the Windows XP desktop.

Start Windows XP Using the Welcome Screen

Turn on your computer, and wait while Windows XP loads and displays the Welcome screen.

Click your user name.

Type your password. Be sure to use the correct capitalization.

Click the green arrow, or press Enter.

The first time you start Windows XP, a ScreenTip pointing to the Windows XP Tour icon on the taskbar appears, asking if you want to take a tour of Windows XP. Click the ScreenTip to take the tour, or click the Close button.
