Basic Guide To Windows
Two major components of any "real" office are its filing cabinet and desktop. The filing cabinet is where you store and organize things you may need access to at some time. The desktop is where you do your work. In a computer, your hard disk plays the role of the filing cabinet. Everything that's "in your computer", so to speak, is actually stored on the computer's hard disk. The Windows desktop is the equivalent of your "real desktop", where you keep things you're working on right now.
