Working with Windows
Windows XP displays all programs and content in a window on the desktop. When you start a program, for instance, you see the program window. When you open a folder, you see the contents in a window.
Part of mastering XP is learning to manipulate the windows so that you can see and work with the area you want. For instance, you might want to move windows so that you can see more than one, or you might want to maximize a window so that it fills the entire desktop area. You use the window controls, as well as other window parts (the title bar and borders) to manipulate the window. This section covers common window tasks.
