CHAPTER 5: Managing with the Control Panel > Using Important Applets

Using Important Applets

There are several additional Control Panel applets you should become familiar with, as they are used frequently when supporting and using Windows systems. These include the configuration of default programs, power management, and the System applet.

Configuring Default Programs

The Default Programs applet is a welcome addition to the Windows OS. For many years the settings configured in this applet were accessed through several different interfaces, and it was up to the user or support professional to locate and use them. This applet brings together the following four aspects of program management:

  • Set Your Default Programs
  • Associate A File Type Or Protocol With A Program
  • Change AutoPlay Settings
  • Set Program Access And Computer Defaults
