Starting Scratch

You access Scratch from the desktop environment, so switch on your Raspberry Pi and then use startx to access it (see Chapter 4 for a guide to using the desktop environment).

To start Scratch, either double-click its icon on the desktop (which shows the head of a smiley orange cat), or select it from your Programs menu in the bottom left of the screen. You can find Scratch in the Programming folder.
