The Add or Remove Programs window opens. Click the Add New Programs button.

INTRODUCTION

When you bought your computer, it might have come with certain programs already installed. If you want to add to these, you can purchase additional programs and then install them on your system. Different programs employ different installation processes. That is, the steps you take to install one program will differ from the steps you'll take to install another. Windows XP's Add or Remove Programs function enables you to begin the process of installing programs from a CD-ROM, a floppy disk, a network, or Microsoft Windows Update.


To add a program from a CD or floppy disk, click the CD or Floppy button.

Insert the program's CD-ROM or floppy disk, and click the Next button. What happens next depends the software you are installing; follow the onscreen directions.
