The Windows 7 Desktop
The Windows 7 desktop (Figure 5) and the objects on the desktop emulate a work
area in an ofi ce. Think of the Windows desktop as an electronic version of the top of
your desk. You can perform tasks such as placing objects on the desktop, moving the
objects around the desktop, and removing items from the desktop.
When you start a program in Windows 7, it appears on the desktop. Some icons
also may be displayed on the desktop. For instance, the icon for the Recycle Bin , the
location of i les that have been deleted, appears on the desktop by default. A i le is a
named unit of storage. Files can contain text, images, audio, and video. You can customize
your desktop so that icons representing programs and i les you use often appear
on your desktop.
