Server-Based Networking A server (sometimes referred to as a file server) is a machine that allows multiple users to access its resources, such as file storage and printing. To allow users to manage their own data on a shared resource such as a file system, a mechanism of security is often implemented. Because the file server is responsible for managing many simultaneous connections to its various resources it is often dedicated to this task alone. For performance reasons the file server is very rarely used for workstation purposes itself. Peer-to-Peer Networking In peer-to-peer networking every machine is both a server and a workstation. In this environment, any workstation can ‘share out’ an individual resource such as a printer port, an individual folder or an entire hard disk.

However, when you run the same program within a window, you have access to the Control (or System) icon. Clicking on this reveals the System (or Control) menu. • Selecting the Edit command displays a further range of choices. • Clicking on the Mark command, allows you to drag across an area of the command line window, and mark an area for copying to the Windows Clipboard. • Once an area has been marked, you can go back to the Edit command (by clicking on the System icon), and then select the Copy command. The selected area has now been copied to the Clipboard. You can paste the data taken from the command line into any Windows application such as Word for Windows. This is an excellent trick if you are producing documentation involving the command line. You can paste text- based data held on the Clipboard into a command line in the same way. However, note that you cannot paste graphics into a command line window, as the command line is a text-only environment. What do you think will be the effect of pasting the following into a command line window? Try it! DIR/W NB: You must copy the DIR/W command and a carriage return that follows it for this demonstration to work. Think about it!

When a data item is linked into an application there is only one true copy of that piece of data, each time it is updated the information can be discovered via the link. Links can be highly ‘processor intensive’ as the link constantly needs to check for updates. It is recommended that fast machines with a powerful processor be used if many links are present. Alternatively, the link may be maintained, but frozen, so that updates can be made on manual instruction only. The mechanism to do this may differ from one application to another, but is often contained under the Edit drop down menu, in a command called Links. To embed data • To embed an object simply select Paste from the Edit drop down menu. If an item is embedded it is merely copied and then pasted in its entirety into the target application (such as a graphic being pasted into a word processing document). If the original data item is updated the update is NOT replicated to the embedded data item. Embedding does not have the high performance overhead associated with linking.

To do this you will normally select the embedded object and then double click on it. What happens then depends on what type of linking the application supports. If the application is using older version of linking, then the application that created the object will be started and your object will appear in that application, allowing you to edit it. When you close the editing application, the embedded objects will have been modified. If the application supports the newer version of linking, then you should stay within the application that contains the embedded object, and the required editing tools should simply appear within the application. To activate an embedded object • Double click on the embedded object.

When a new device is installed, Windows 2000 will decide how system resources should be configured.

During the installation process Windows will keep track of the changes that the application makes to your system, so that at a later date the application can be completely removed. It is important to realize that when you install an application that files are installed all over the Windows file system (i.e. not just in a single folder containing the application). If you wish to remove a program, you should not attempt to simply delete the folder containing the applications, you should also use the Add/Remove Programs utility, as this will remove all trace of the application. Many programs also modify the Windows registry, which is a database contained within Windows. Again the Add/Remove Programs utility will remove any traces of a program from this database. The Add/Remove Programs icon is located within the Control Panel. Double click on the icon and follow the on-screen prompts. In the example illustrated Microsoft Office 2000 has been selected. To remove this application from your system you would click on the Remove button. To modify the way the program is installed, you would click on the Change button. Microsoft Office is a good example of a program that can be either fully installed or partially installed. Thus when you first install Microsoft Office you might wish to use a ‘minimal’ installation to save of the amount of disk space used. At a later date you may wish to add additional components, such as more clipart (from the installation disk).

You would proceed by selecting the components that you wish to install and then click on the Update button. Note that if you installed the application from a CD-ROM then you would need to insert the CD-ROM to complete the process.

When a shortcut is selected the real object that it points to is launched. Shortcuts can be useful as launch points directly from the desktop for commonly used applications. You should remember that if you make a copy of a file, the copy takes up just as much disk space as the original file did. Also, if you change the original then the copy will not be changed. If you have experience of using IBM’s OS/2 operating system, then creating a shortcut is similar to the concept of shadowing an OS/2 object. BEWARE: Windows 2000 does not actively track a link between an original and a shortcut. For instance, if you create a shortcut of a program, and subsequently move (rather than copy) the original to a different folder, then the shortcut may no longer function. You can create shortcuts from icons displayed within a folder, or you can create shortcuts by directly manipulating files displayed within the Windows 2000 Explorer. Normally shortcuts relate to a program or document, but you can also create shortcuts to folders which can be very useful if you are constantly needing to go to a particular folder.

By default when you drag and drop a program file, it creates a shortcut icon. 2. By default when you drag and drop a data file it moves the file from one place to another. If you wish to copy a program file, rather than create a shortcut icon, you must depress the Ctrl key while you drag and drop. To create a shortcut using Ctrl+Shift while ‘dragging and dropping’ • Hold the Ctrl+Shift keys down and use drag and drop to instantly create a shortcut. You will see the pop-up menu illustrated below, when you release the mouse button. • Click on the Create Shortcut[s] Here command. To identify shortcuts A shortcut object can easily be identified by the small arrow displayed at the bottom left of the shortcut icon. These arrows are referred to as ‘jump arrows’. To define a keyboard shortcut to run a shortcut • Click on the shortcut to select it and then depress the Alt key, double click on the shortcut icon, and then release the Alt key. This is a shortcut to display the properties pop-up for the icon. • Click on the Shortcut tab to select it. Then click within the Shortcut key text box of the dialog box. • Depress the Ctrl key (and keep it depressed), then type in the shortcut letter. Release the Ctrl key. You will notice that if, for instance, you entered Ctrl+Q, this is recorded as Ctrl+Alt+Q. • Click on the OK button. The keyboard may now be used to start this shortcut program (in this case by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Q). To start a program that runs minimized • In the Run section of the Shortcut tab of the Properties dialog box, click on the down arrow, as illustrated. • Click on Minimized, and then click on the OK button.
