Starting Windows Vista

Windows Vista automatically starts when you turn on your computer. When you first start Windows Vista, you see a Welcome screen that you use to log on to Windows. The Welcome screen displays all the user accounts on the computer. Unlike Windows XP, the Welcome screen can’t be turned off. After you click a user name, and enter a password, you see the Windows Vista desktop and the Welcome Center window (New!), which displays options to view basic computer details, transfer files and setting, add new users, connect to the Internet, install Windows Ultimate Extras, view new feature in Windows Vista, and view Microsoft offers available on the Web.
