*     Starting and Application

 

 

You have learned some useful information about Windows, now you will learn to work with one of its applications. We will select an application called Paint, which is often used for drawing and painting. It helps you create simple drawings.  

 

 

*    Steps to start the Paint application.

  • Click the Start button on the Taskbar. A menu will pop up, showing the options available to you.
  • Stop your mouse cursor on Programs. This automatically opens up the list of application programs your computer has.
  • Select Accessories and the options under Accessories will be available to you.
  • Select Paint. (See Figure 4.6.7)

   

 

 

There is another easier way to open Paint (or any other application). You can double- click on the Paint icon, if it is there on the Desktop. This is a shortcut to open an application you want to work with. Well, having opened Paint, let us become familiar with some common items of a window and their functions. Title Bar is a horizontal bar on the top of the window. The title bar tells you in which application you are working. In this case, it tells you that the window that is opened before you is that of an application program called Paint. Close button is located at the upper right corner. The window will close if you click this button. With that the application will close too. Minimize button is again located at the upper right corner. You can click this button to minimize the window. Now the window will be available on the Taskbar. You can see its name there and the icons for restoring it back to its usual size or for closing it. Maximize button is for bringing the window back to full screen. Once the window occupies the entire screen, the maximizing button is replaced by the restore button. Menu Bar displays the menus that are available with an application and the items on each one of the menus. Scroll Bars work like lift boxes. There are two of them. One is for horizontal and the other for vertical movements. They help to move text (or any other object) up and down or left and right. Resize for resizing a window, take the mouse pointer to the corner of the window to get a double headed arrow. Click and drag to increase or decrease the size of the window diagonally. If you take the pointer to any of the four sides of the window, you get the double headed cursor. By clicking and dragging you can perform the same operation horizontally or vertically.
