Every window in Windows, and every window in software written to run in Windows, has a menu bar. Menu bars usually have a menu named File at the left end, and Help at the far right. What comes between depends on the type of software and its functions.
This appendix covers the commands in the Windows 2000 Professional desktop windows.
Frequently, you'll find that some menu commands are grayed out, meaning that they're not available for use. You can usually figure out why. For example, the Copy command is grayed out unless you've highlighted something to copy. Other reasons for inaccessible commands can be a little more difficult to parse; this appendix also addresses what to do to make grayed out commands available.
Along with the Help menu, the File menu is the most universal one in Windows and Windows applications. Its commands may vary depending on whether or not you've highlighted an icon in the window.
Opens the selected icon:
If the icon is a drive or a folder, this command opens a window that displays the drive/folder's contents.See more

If you’re like most job seekers (and professional resume writers), you have worked long and hard to write a powerful resume that proudly showcases your career, your promotions, your achievements, and other highlights of your professional life. You’ve probably reviewed and edited your resume over and over, making certain that the wording is accurate and positions you precisely for your targeted career objectives.
Now comes your next challenge: the design, layout, and presentation of your resume. It’s not enough that your resume read well; your resume must also have just the right look and feel for its target audience. As such, you must make a few decisions about what your final resume presentation will look like.
In decades past, this would have been only a brief discussion, during which we would have told you how important it is to use a nice typestyle and to leave plenty of white space so that hiring managers and recruiters can easily peruse your resume. Resume production and distribution were easy. You typed (maybe even word-processed) your resume; printed it on white, ivory, or light gray paper; put it into an envelope; and mailed it. There were few decisions to be made. Even with the introduction of the fax machine, the process was largely the same.See more

GRAPHIC AIDS: Bar Graphs
A bar graph visually compares the details of different things. The bars show the amounts of whatever is being compared.
A. The following bar graph compares microwave ovens. Notice that this is the same topic as a table in the last exercise. Also notice that the table gave more information, but the bar graph emphasizes the comparisons.
Study the bar graph. Circle a word or words to correctly complete each comparison.
1. The Zap It is the ( most / least ) expensive oven in the group.
2. The Cookmaster is the ( most / least ) expensive oven in the group.
3. The Peabody costs ( more / less ) than the Zap It.
4. The Acme costs ( more / less ) than the Peabody.
5. The New Age Z100 is a ( high-priced / low-priced / mid-priced ) microwave oven.
B. Select a consumer product. Find out the prices for similar models
of several different brands (suggestions: soccer shoes, skateboards, car stereos, fast food hamburgers). On the back of this sheet, make a bar graph that shows the prices. Then use the information in the graph to write two statements of comparison.See more

The actual form that discipline takes alters from year to year with the growth of the child, and, of course, varies from T child to child. We must continue to bear in mind that our aim is to help our children towards disciplining themselves, and in such a way that they can find a style of life where their talents reach fullest expression and realization. This can usually be achieved only by learning to co-operate with others. If we remember these things we have some rational thread to follow when trying to decide on the difficult issues of what is and what is not permissible.
At all ages, one of the problems is to decide when a child should be curbed for his own good, when he has to be protected against himself, or when it may be advisable to let him have a little rope and learn from bitter experience. The eleven-year-old who has already had years of experience of a firm but kindly discipline from his parents is likely to be preparing for a less stormy and defiant adolescence than the child who has encountered erratic, unpredictable, and unreasonable handling. This often produces a child who expects his mum or dad to be “on to him” if they happen to find out when he is up to something he should not be, but who takes a sporting chance of not being found out, as he does not see why he should not try to get away with it if he can. We have to take our children with us if we want them willingly to endorse our standards. That means at times re-examining these standards ourselves and being willing to discuss them with the child when he is really questioning. If our rules are founded on reason they will bear examination.See more
