In CDE you run an application by clicking its control on the Front Panel, by double-clicking its icon in Application Manager, or by choosing it from the Workspace menu.
|Task or Feature||OpenWindows Method||CDE Methods|
|Run an application from the desktop||Choose a menu item on the Workspace menu||
Click a control on Front Panel
Choose a menu item from the Workspace menu
Double-click an icon in Application Manager
|Add a personal application to Front Panel||Not applicable (no Front Panel)||Drop a program icon on an Add Icon drop zone on a subpanel|
|Run an OpenWindows application||Choose a menu item on the Workspace menu||Double-click an icon in the OpenWindows folder in Application Manager|
You can also run an application by dropping the appropriate file on a drop zone on the Front Panel. For example, dropping a file on the printer icon prints the file.
You can also start an application by entering UNIX commands on a command line in a terminal window. To display a terminal window, choose This Host on the Hosts subpanel of the Front Panel.
Application Manager enables you to organize applications for easy access by storing their icons in special folders. For example, you can launch your OpenWindows applications from icons in the OpenWindows folder (see Figure 1-2).
