The Task Bar
(Page 1 of 3)
The task bar is also found on our desktop and is used for managing several task at a time. By default it is at the bottom of our desktop.
Clicking on the task bar allows us to manage our open windows and what information we want to appear on the taskbar.
The different areas of the Task Bar correspond to different functions available on it. You already know that the Start button displays a menu of programs and other features of your system. Immediately to the right of that area are shortcuts to frequently-used programs and areas of your system. The items in the individual boxes, in the middle of the task bar, are tasks that are underway.
In Figure 33 you can see that there are 2 folders open, plus a number of Word documents and other programs in the middle of the task bar. You can also see the Start button, and frequently-used programs to the left, and the time, mouse and CD-ROM (and other) options to the right. These are all programs either running or items open on the computer. By Clicking on one of these icons will take you directly to the item or to a menu.
