Chapter 13. Customizing Windows XP > Customizing the Taskbar

Customizing the Taskbar

tip

If you share your computer with other users, make sure to create separate user accounts before making any dramatic changes to the interface.


The taskbar, although small in size, actually tells you a lot. It lets you know which programs are running and which windows are open. It tells you the time and shows icons when other activities are going on. For example, if you see a printer icon, you know that your computer is sending data to the printer. If you see a connection icon, you know that you are connected to the Internet.
