9.5. System Tools

Most of the programs included in this folder are utilities designed to keep your PC in good health. They include Backup (Chapter 18); Disk Cleanup, Disk Defragmenter, and System Information (Chapter 19); and Scheduled Tasks (Chapter 8). That leaves only Getting Started (the brief Windows 2000 tour that greeted you the first time you turned on your Windows 2000 computer) and Character Map, described next.

9.5.1. Character Map

In addition to the standard letters, numbers, and punctuation marks, your PC can create hundreds of different typographical symbols, such as the currency symbols for the Yen and British pound, diacritical markings for French, Spanish, and other languages, various scientific symbols, and trademark and copyright signs. Obviously, these symbols don't appear on your keyboard; instead, they're hidden behind the keys you do see.
