Hour 2. A Tour of the Desktop > Understanding the Shortcuts Bar

Understanding the Shortcuts Bar

The Shortcuts bar, shown in Figure 2.2, simplifies your workflow by providing buttons that correspond to the most common functions located on other menus. If you’ve used other software with similar button bars (Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel have them, to name just a few) then these buttons will be very familiar. The icons on the buttons should help you remember what’s what. Starting with the first icon on the left and moving right, the Adobe logo opens your browser and takes you to www.adobe.com. The blank page icon, of course, means New image, and the partly open file folder icon stands for Open. The same folder icon plus a magnifying glass initiates a search by opening the File Browser. The last icon in this group, with a tilted image window and a right-pointing arrow, is used to import an image from a scanner, digital camera, or other source.
