  • Pg 67Objective 1-3.2.2, 1-3.2.4Discuss how students have the option of using other methods to start application programs besides from the Start button, and when they might use these. The first portion of this topic will begin the process of introducing the students to working with applications and the latter portion on Run may require you to spend a bit of time discussing when or why you might use this command.
  • Pg 68Objective 1-3.2.2, 1-3.2.4Ensure students understand what multitasking refers to and how you can switch between programs or files. Go through the different ways they can switch and provide an example of when you might prefer to use the Alt+Tab method, e.g., playing an older game on the system which takes full screen. You don’t want to exit the game but you receive notification that someone you’ve been waiting to come online, is now active. You have to use this option as you do not see the taskbar on the full screen game.No method for switching between programs is better than the other; it will come down to user preference and what they feel most comfortable doing. Discuss with students show you may never use the keyboard options to switch, especially if you only ever use newer Windows programs. Give examples of when you may still wind up using a keyboard option such as if you choose to hide the taskbar so you can take advantage of full screen for all programs and pressing a keyboard shortcut is a fast way of moving to another program.
  • Pg 68Objective 1-3.2.2, 1-3.2.4Provide examples of some commands you can run using the Run command, e.g., ping, msconfig, regedit, sysedit, etc. Many of the commands listed here are more for technical support, but a simple command such as command can demonstrate how DOS used to work (although this isn’t really the same). This can then tie back into the different operating systems and how the newer operating systems make working with commands much easier in newer operating systems.
  • Pg 71-72Objective 1-3.2.4Most people will not need to have the Windows version displayed as it can be pretty obvious to tell the difference between XP and Windows 7 from the display of certain items, e.g., breadcrumb trail, different control buttons, etc.This is mainly for sharing information for technical support to ensure you will get the best solution for the help requested.
