Throughout this book, you'll find sentences like this one: " Open the My Computer C: Windows folder." Thats shorthand for a much longer instruction that directs you to open three nested folders in sequence, like this: "On your hard drive, there's an icon called My Computer. Open that. Inside My Computer, there's a folder for your C: drive. Open that. Inside your C: drive is your Windows folder. Open that." Similarly, this kind of arrow shorthand helps to simplify the business of choosing commands in menus , such as File New Window, as shown in Figure I-1.
