The Open Option
Right click or Double Click on 'My computer" will produce the Window shown in Figure 38.
When we choose the open command from "My Computer" we will see all the floppy, hard drives and cd-rom drives represented by icons. We can also click on the folders there for printers, the Control Panel, networking and the task scheduler in Windows 9x. In Windows 2000 we see all of the drives and have links to click on for networking and the control panel
Double-clicking on any of these drives or folders will take us directly to the options or contents. Right clicking on any of these icons or folders will also bring a sub-menu of options. As usual, the options vary depending on what we click on.
If we double click on "My Computer" we will also be brought to a window like the screen example shown above.
8 Practice the open command
8 Practice ALT +underlined letter keys to open
8 Practice TAB on the desktop to the open command
From this we can see the Start menu and open command is another navigation option.
