5.1. Applications Menu

The Applications menu contains a hierarchy of submenus, from which you can start the applications that are installed on your system.

Each submenu correponds to a category. For example, in the Sound & Video submenu, you will find applications for playing CDs and recording sound.

To launch an application, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the Applications menu by clicking on it.

  2. Move the mouse down the menu to the category the application you want is in. Each submenu opens as your mouse passes over the category.

  3. Click the menu item for the application.

When you install a new application, it is automatically added to the Applications menu in a suitable category. For example, if you install an instant messenger application, a VoIP application, or an FTP client, you will find it in the Internet submenu. (Next: Places Menu)
