HP Notebook PCs - Using the Home Screen and Widgets in Mobile Internet Experience

This document pertains to HP Mini models with Mobile Internet Experience
Understanding the Home Screen
The home screen is the first (default) screen you see after login into the system. It is primarily designed to give quick access to E-mail, Browsing, and Multimedia (using icons more commonly referred to as widgets). The home screen also provides quick access to file browser and system settings from its top panel.
From the Home Screen, you can quickly view your photos, play music, browse the Internet, or configure and check your e-mail. You can personalize the Home Screen for quick links to your favorite Web sites, photo albums, music albums, and playlists.
Home screen widgets are meant to be gateways to actual, full-screen applications by providing quick access information functionalities in them. Widgets provide basic functionalities such as “change favorite” available through pop-up menus. At this point, the widgets themselves cannot be changed or replaced with another widget.
