    Where can I find documentation for the parts of the window that I get
    when I open WindowsXP-Pro or Windows7-Home?

    Thanks for looking into my question.

    1. WinXP-Pro/SP3, e.g., window displays a caption at the top, a status
    bar at the bottom.
    The latter is divided into
    1a. tabs? for various windows, e.g, 3 Windows Explorers, 2 Microsoft
    Words, etc.
    1b. Unoccupied areas where one can right-click to get a menu that
    enables showing the desktop
    1c. the rightmost group of icons (called what?) for various
    activations
    1d. the day and time-of-day

    2. Windows7, which I got on a recently purchased laptop, where it took
    me hours to find out how to find the equivalent of WinXP Start button

    Best Wishes,
    Richard

    In each case the answer is much the same: Type one of the following phrases
    into a Google search box (including the surrounding double quotes), then
    take your pick:

    "Windows XP tutorial"
    "Windows 7 tutorial"

    The Start button in Windows 7 is in exactly the same position as in Windows
    XP - it only looks different. Pressing and releasing the Windows key on your
    keyboard has the same effect as clicking the Start button.
