There is a stripe at the bottom of your screen that is called the task bar. Moving right to left: On the right you will see the clock. Next, is the System Tray. Then an open area in which you will see from zero to many “buttons” that represent windows that are either open or minimized to the button. Then you may see the Quick Launch area where a number of icons lie. They are shortcuts to the applications they represent –ONE click will do. Then you will see the Start button. Windows 7 has a globe instead of the word Start.
