Getting Started

This section gives you a quick overview of the desktop: help and where to get it; the K menu, from which you can start almost any program (analogous to the GNOME menu); the title and scrollbars and how they differ from others; mouse clicks and which do what; the input focus and different ways of changing it; the Main panel, which is the key to the desktop; and menus. Figure 8-1 shows a KDE workspace.
