Clicking Start displays a menu that lets you easily access the most useful items on your computer. Clicking All Programs  opens a list of programs currently installed on your computer. The list of programs on the Start menu is divided into two parts: the programs displayed above the separator line (also known as the pinned items list) and the programs displayed below the separator line (also known as the most frequently used programs list). The programs on the pinned items list remain there and are always available for you to click to start them. You can add programs to the pinned items list. Programs are added to the most frequently used programs list when you use them. Windows has a default number of programs that are displayed on the most frequently used programs list. When that number of programs is reached, the programs you have not opened recently are replaced by the programs you used last.

The Control Panel  To open Control Panel, click Start and then click Control Panel. Control Panel is full of specialized tools that are used to change the way Windows looks and behaves. Some of these tools help you adjust settings that make your computer more fun to use. For example, use Mouse to replace standard mouse pointers with animated icons that move on your screen, or use Sounds and Audio Devices to replace standard system sounds with sounds you choose. Other tools help you set up Windows so that your computer is easier to use.   When you first open Control Panel, you will see some of the most commonly used Control Panel items organized by category. To find out more information about an item in Control Panel while in Category view, hold your mouse pointer over the icon or category name and read the text that appears. To open one of these items, click its icon or category name. Some of these items will open to a list of tasks you can perform, as well as a selection of individual Control Panel items. For example, when you click Appearance and Themes , you will see a list of tasks such as Choose a screen saver along with individual Control Panel items. If you open Control Panel and do not see the item you want, click Switch to Classic View .

Display Properties   Windows provides different options for the look of the screens. To get to the display options in Control Panel  click on Display then on the Appearance tab. This is the screen that will appear:   
 
   
 
 
 Under Windows and Buttons you can change the look of a Window Box to the XP style (above) or you can select Classic style, which is the style that was used in Windows 98.  Under Color Scheme you can choose different color for the windows boxes.  Under Font Size you can choose between small, normal, and large icons.

 Mouse Settings  The mouse option can also be found in the Control Panel under Mouse.   
  Mouse Properties allows you to choose whether you want it as a right-handed or left handed mouse, the double-clicking speed, and also click-lock: which is a NEW! feature. This enables you to highlight or drag without holding down the mouse button. You can choose your pointer, the pointer speed, and the visibility of the pointer. You can choose how many lines you can scroll over when using the mouse.

 Setting a Screen Saver  A screen saver is a program that displays moving graphics or words on your screen when you are not working. To choose a screen saver, select Display in the Control Panel then choose the Screen Saver Tab. This is the screen that will appear:  
  
 
 Use the Screen Saver pull down menu to choose a screen saver. If there are settings that you want to change for the screen saver, use the Settings  button. The Wait prompt allows you to change the time it takes for the screen saver to appear while the computer is idle.
