feature. On some versions of Windows, it also includes Flip 3D and the charms. However, the Windows shell
Windows shell
also implements a shell namespace that enables computer programs running on Windows to access the computer's resources via the hierarchy of shell objects. "Desktop" is the top object of the hierarchy; below it there are a number of files and folders stored on the disk, as well as a number of special folders whose contents are either virtual or dynamically created. Recycle Bin, Libraries, Control Panel, This PC and Network are examples of such shell objects. The Windows shell, as it is known today, is an evolution of what began with Windows 95, released in 1995

Isometric Projection
Isometric projection
Isometric projection
is a method for visually representing three-dimensional objects in two dimensions in technical and engineering drawings. It is an axonometric projection in which the three coordinate axes appear equally foreshortened and the angle between any two of them is 120 degrees.Contents1 Overview 2 Rotation angles 3 Mathematics 4 History and limitations 5 Usage in video games and pixel art 6 References 7 External linksOverview[edit]Isometric drawing of a cubeCamera rotations needed to achieve this perspectiveThe term "isometric" comes from the Greek for "equal measure", reflecting that the scale along each axis of the projection is the same (unlike some other forms of graphical projection). An isometric view of an object can be obtained by choosing the viewing direction such that the angles between the projections of the x, y, and z axes are all the same, or 120°

Recycle Bin (Windows)
In computing, the trash (also known as the recycle bin in Windows and by other names in other operating systems ) is temporary storage for files that have been deleted in a file manager by the user, but not yet permanently erased from the file system. Typically, a recycle bin is presented as a special file directory to the user (whether or not it is actually a single directory depends on the implementation), allowing the user to browse deleted files, undelete those that were deleted by mistake, or delete them permanently (either one by one, or by the "Empty Trash" function). Within a trash folder, a record is kept of each file and/or directory's original location. On certain operating systems, files must be moved out of the trash before they can be accessed again. Whether or not files deleted by a program go to the recycle bin depends on its level of integration with a particular desktop environment and its function

Pop-up Notification
The terms Pop-up notifications, toastings, Poptart, passive pop-ups, desktop notifications, notification bubbles, rustings, balloon notifications or simply notifications all refer to a graphical control element that communicates certain events to the user without forcing them to react to this notification immediately, unlike conventional pop-up windows. Desktop notifications usually disappear automatically after a short amount of time. Often their content is then stored in some widget that allows the users to access past notifications at a more convenient time.Contents1 Support on different systems 2 Capabilities 3 External links 4 ReferencesSupport on different systems[edit] In Windows 2000, Microsoft

Year 2000 Problem
The Year 2000 problem, also known as the Y2K problem, the Millennium bug, the Y2K bug, or Y2K, is a class of computer bugs related to the formatting and storage of calendar data for dates beginning in the year 2000. Problems were anticipated, and arose, because many programs represented four-digit years with only the final two digits — making the year 2000 indistinguishable from 1900

Toolbar
In computer interface design, a toolbar (originally known as ribbon[1][2]) is a graphical control element on which on-screen buttons, icons, menus, or other input or output elements are placed. Toolbars are seen in many types of software such as office suites, graphics editors and web browsers. Toolbars are usually distinguished from palettes by their integration into the edges of the screen or larger windows, which results in wasted space if too many underpopulated bars are stacked atop each other (especially horizontal bars on a landscape oriented display) or interface inefficiency if overloaded bars are placed on small windows. Variants and derivatives[edit] There several user interface elements derived from toolbars:Address bar, location bar or URL bar is a toolbar that mainly consists of a text box. It accepts uniform resource locators (URLs) or file system addresses
