Subject:Terminology for Windows 95/MS Office 97 From:"stephen.p.reynolds" <stephen -dot- p -dot- reynolds -at- AC -dot- COM> Date:Sat, 26 Apr 1997 15:56:50 -0500
I would like to find a reference that gives the terminology for all the
components of the user interface for Windows 95/97 applications. I suppose this
means that I am looking at an "official" Microsoft publication. Similarly, I am
looking for a publication that makes recommendations for the words to use when
describing user actions (selecting, choosing, pointing, clicking, etc.) in
procedures for Windows 95/97 programs.
Does anyone know of any suitable books, articles, or (preferable) Web sources.
