Welcome to HP VUE
HP VUE is Hewlett Packards fancy new Graphical User Interface or GUI for short.
It is quite powerful and has a lot of nifty features that make using a UNIX
based workstation much more user friendly. This is a basic introduction to HP
VUE to help get you started, for more indepth coverage of its features the
included with the package is excellent and if your really in a bind there is
always the manuals which should be somewhere nearby.
HP VUE Features
This is a short list of HP VUE's general features:
- Windows and workspaces.
What your reading right now is printed in
a window. The HP VUE windows are similar to MS windows and are handled in a
similar manner. The main advantage of windows is that they allow you to run
several different programs or applications, as the computer literate call them,
at the same time. This multi-tasking capability is extended even farther by the
use of workspaces. Workspaces let your single display work as several displays.
Changing your workspace is done with the push of a "button".
- Icon-based file management.
Files and directories are represented by icons that can be selected and moved on
- Easy to use Text Editor.
- Easy customization. Colors, fonts, window behavior and other aspects
of the appearance and behavior of your workstation are easily changed and
- Front Panel and
toolboxes. The front panel allows easy access to most
applications by simply "clicking" on the icon representation.
