For those writers who document software applications, when you are
describing a window/screen, do you identify every part of the
window/screen or do you only specify the parts that aren't obvious? We
typically identify all parts and pieces, but I'm wondering if this is over
kill. I know this answer will be partly based on the audience, but I want
to know what others consider in making this decision.

Thank you,
