The desktop9 l.jpg
The Desktop

The Desktop is where Windows puts icons for standard applications that are frequently used, for example:

:My Computer

:My Documents

:Recycle Bin

You can also add other icons to your desktop. These icons are often called Shortcuts. Some shortcuts will have a small curved arrow on the left


The taskbar l.jpg
The Taskbar

The Taskbar is along the bottom of the computer screen and is almost always in view. It is possible to lock the taskbar on your personal computer, by right clicking the mouse when the cursor is on the bar.

You can also add the Quick Launch option which allows you to place shortcuts on the taskbar so that you don’t have to return to the Desktop to open the application


The tool bar l.jpg
The Tool Bar

The Tool Bar is at the top of the screen on many applications. There are many toolbars that can be added to the standard one you see when you open most MS Office applications.
