In this course, you will learn all about the Windows Accessories. We will teach you what the Accessories are, why they are important, and how to use the important ones. We'll show you how to activate the QuickLaunch Bar, how to use Calculator, how to write a business letter in WordPad, how to create basic text files in Notepad. We'll teach you how to create graphic images in Paint, and how to incorporate those images into your WordPad (or other) documents. We'll go over all of the different Accessibility and Entertainment accessories, and show you how to use the Disk Cleanup system tool.

Hey, even if you don't think you'll ever need to use those "silly little Windows Accessories," you'd be surprised how powerful and functional they are. What happens if you're at a friend's house and he doesn't have Microsoft Word? Use WordPad. What happens if you need to quickly edit a bitmap picture and you don't have Photoshop? Use Paint. The Accessores are very useful and surprisingly powerful - if you know how to use them properly!
