Cleaning Up Desktop Clutter

The Windows 95 desktop is the large area you see when you first start your computer. Sometimes, just like your real desktop, you'll need to find something on it, but it's cluttered. Instead of minimizing all of your applications one at a time you can use your taskbar, the bar at the bottom of the screen. Simply right-click in any open space in the bar to the left of the time, then click "Minimize all Windows". Later, right-click the same area and click "Undo Minimize All".
