To select a menu command:
1. Click the Start button on the taskbar. The button appears to be pushed in, indicating that
it is selected.
2. Point to (but don’t click) All Programs on the Start menu. When you first point to the All
Programs command, it is highlighted to indicate it is selected. After a short pause, the
All Programs submenu opens. See Figure 5.

Trouble? If a submenu other than the All Programs menu opens, you pointed to the
wrong command. Move the mouse so that the pointer points to All Programs.
3. Click the Start button on the taskbar to close the Start menu. You return to the desktop.
In addition to clicking an object to select it, you can double-click an object to open or
start the item associated with it. For example, you can double-click a folder icon to open
the folder and see its contents. Or you can double-click a program icon to start the pro-
gram. Double-clicking means to click the left mouse button twice in quick succession.
You can practice double-clicking now by opening the Recycle Bin. The Recycle Bin
holds deleted items such as folders until you remove them permanently.
To view the contents of the Recycle Bin:
1. Click the desktop, and then point to the Recycle Bin icon on the desktop. After a few
moments, a ScreenTip appears that describes the Recycle Bin.
2. Click the left mouse button twice quickly to double-click the Recycle Bin icon. The Recycle
Bin window opens, as shown in Figure 6.
