Solaris Transition Guide

Accessing the Workspace Applications Menu

In the OpenWindows environment, the main way to start an application is through the Workspace menu. A Workspace menu still exists in Solaris CDE, however, the main access point for workspace functionality is the Front Panel.

The applications available through the Workspace menu include the items on the Front Panel and also a subset of the applications available to you within Application Manager. Refer to Chapter 6, "Running Applications from the Desktop," in Solaris Common Desktop Environment: User's Guide for complete information on Application Manager.
