The Start Menu

Saturday, January 8th, 2005 by | Filed Under: Computer Terms

Many of our tips tell you to go to the “Start” menu. That’s the button down in the lower left hand corner on your tool bar. If you click it or press the Window key you’ll be taken to the Windows command center.


In this wonderful world you can access programs, the Control Panel or Help & Support. You can do searches or get the “Run” box for launching programs and files. Best of all, it is customizable.

The XP Start menu has three main areas: on the left are shortcuts to favorite programs, on the right you find links to special folders and features, while at the bottom are your Log Off and Turn Off options.

For more info on customizing your Start Menu, check out these tips on our web site…
