  9. 9. The XP Desktop – Icons, Shortcuts, Folders, etc. To make it easier for you to identify each type of item, I have removed the graphics from the background.
  10. 10. Internet Service – Dialup , DSL, Cable Very Slow but very inexpensive
  11. 11. Internet Service – Dialup, DSL , Cable Faster than Dialup but Slower than Cable. However, speed is consistent if only 1 pc used per modem on a single line
  12. 12. Internet Service – Dialup, DSL, Cable Fastest speed available for normal home users Slower than satellite (military) However, speed is consistent if only 1 pc used per cable line – cable lines are like old telephone party lines.
  13. 13. Internet Explorer – Web Searches Google is one of the most common search engines available to users. It and other search engines enable users to search the Web, images, Maps, News, Shopping, Groups, and many other topics. Today, we’ll use it to complete different types of web searches. We’ll be looking at different tabs and then search on a favorite topic of your own.
  14. 14. E-Mail – How does it work? <ul><li>Okay. You write a letter and take it to the mailbox. It sits in the mailbox until the mail carrier picks it up. The address on the front of the envelope directs the letter to a specific person at a specific location. It's taken to the addressee's mailbox and put inside. It sits there until the addressee walks out to the mailbox and gets the letter. </li></ul><ul><li>This is basically how e-mail works. You address the email - [email_address] - the part before the &quot;@&quot; signifies the person; the part after the &quot;@&quot; the server. </li></ul><ul><li>Your e-mail sits in a queue on a computer - called a server - at your I nternet S ervice P rovider (AOL, Yahoo, etc.). Your ISP sends out all the queued up e-mails. </li></ul><ul><li>Those e-mails go to the specified servers and then are routed to the specified users (your friend). The e-mail sits there until the user (your friend) goes online to pick up their e-mail. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Internet Explorer – e-mail <ul><li>E-Mail stands for electronic mail. </li></ul><ul><li>Normally e-mail is a free service of your internet service provider, or you can use other sites such as Google (G-Mail), Yahoo (Yahoo mail), AOL (AOL Mail), MSN (Hotmail or Livemail) </li></ul><ul><li>Names can be made unique by your own creation or you can have the company create a name for you. </li></ul><ul><li>Space is limited as set by the provider you choose. </li></ul><ul><li>Old e-mails can and will be deleted after a certain time frame. </li></ul><ul><li>Convenient because you don’t take up space on your pc </li></ul><ul><li>Inconvenient because you can’t get to your e-mail if you loose internet connection unless you have alternate methods of accessing your internet – such as a mobile device </li></ul><ul><li>Junk Mail – Don’t open it if you don’t know the person who sent it to you. Also, don’t click on the remove me from the mail list, because then they know they have a good address and sell your address to other Junk mail companies. </li></ul>
