    • D.

These scroll bars can appear either vertically on the right side of the window or horizontally at the bottom, depending on the orientation of the content. They provide a means for the user to scroll up, down, left, or right to view the hidden content that is not visible within the current window size.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When programs or folders are opened on a computer, they typically appear in separate windows on the screen. Each program or folder opens in its own window, allowing the user to interact with multiple applications or folders simultaneously. This allows for better organization and multitasking, as users can easily switch between different windows and access the content they need.

This pane is useful for quickly accessing and viewing important details about files or folders without having to open them.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    You can move a window anywhere on the desktop using mouse only.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because you cannot move a window anywhere on the desktop using the mouse only. To move a window, you need to click and hold the title bar of the window and then drag it to the desired location on the desktop. Simply using the mouse without clicking and holding the title bar will not allow you to move the window.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Maximized and minimized windows can be moved anywhere on the desktop.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Maximized windows cannot be moved anywhere on the desktop because they are displayed in full screen mode and cover the entire screen. However, minimized windows can be moved anywhere on the desktop as they are reduced to a small icon or thumbnail and do not occupy the entire screen. Therefore, the given answer "False" is correct as it correctly states that maximized windows cannot be moved anywhere on the desktop.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    You change the size of the window to see more or less information in multiple windows by pressing:

    • A.

      Ctrl + Spacebar

    • B.

      Alt + Spacebar

    • C.

      Windows Key + Spacebar

    • D.

      Tab + Spacebar

    Correct Answer
    B. Alt + Spacebar
    Explanation
    Pressing Alt + Spacebar opens the window menu for the active window. From this menu, you can select options such as "Size" to resize the window, allowing you to see more or less information. This shortcut is commonly used to quickly adjust the size of windows without needing to use the mouse or navigate through menus.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    One of the following is NOT a scroll bar contents.

    • A.

      Arrow button

    • B.

      Scroll box

    • C.

      Search box

    • D.

      Scroll area

    Correct Answer
    C. Search box
    Explanation
    The search box is not a scroll bar content because it is not a part of the scroll bar itself. The scroll bar typically consists of an arrow button, which allows scrolling in small increments, a scroll box, which can be dragged to scroll through the content, and a scroll area, which indicates the portion of the content that is currently visible. The search box, on the other hand, is a separate input field used for searching specific content within a larger area, and it is not directly related to the scrolling functionality of the scroll bar.

    A file that includes very detailed instructions for microprocessor on what tasks to perform is called:

    • A.

      Application file

    • B.

      System file

    • C.

      Folder

    • D.

      Subfolder

    Correct Answer
    A. Application file
    Explanation
    An application file is a type of file that contains detailed instructions for a microprocessor on what tasks to perform. It is specifically designed for a particular application or program and provides the necessary information for the microprocessor to execute the desired functions. Unlike system files, which are essential for the operating system to function properly, an application file is specific to a particular software or program. Folders and subfolders, on the other hand, are organizational structures used to store and manage files, but they do not contain instructions for a microprocessor.

      Application file

    • D.

      Folder

    Correct Answer
    A. Data file
    Explanation
    A file that contains information entered and saved in an application is called a data file. This file stores the data inputted by the user and can be accessed and manipulated by the application. It is different from a system file, which is used by the operating system to run the application, and an application file, which is the executable file of the application itself. A folder, on the other hand, is a container that can hold multiple files and directories.

It allows users to group related files and programs together, making it easier to locate and manage them. Folders help maintain a hierarchical structure, allowing for better organization and navigation within a computer's file system. They are commonly used to store documents, images, videos, and other types of files. Folders can also contain subfolders, allowing for further organization and categorization of files and programs.
