CHAPTER 4: Using Native Applications > Using the Traditional Tools

Using the Traditional Tools

Many tools have existed in Windows since the earliest versions, and several still exist in Windows 7 today that were in Windows 3.1 in the early 1990s. Among these are text editors, image editors, and the Calculator. In this section, you will review these tools and the features they offer.

Editing Text

When it comes to text editors, Windows 7 offers two primary tools. For editing simple text files, the Notepad application is provided. For editing more complex documents, Windows 7 provides the WordPad application (formerly known as Write in Windows 3.1). Administrators can use these text editors to modify configuration files on servers and clients. Of course, they can also use them for the same purposes that end users do: to edit text documents.
