The rapid development of Science and Technology has changed the world. In recent years computers have been used in all fields of human activities: business, industry, education, culture, health care service, economics, politics, mass media, arts, in everyday life of different people. At the present time people have to keep step with the times and not to be lost in the world of information. So computers are becoming of great importance for most adults and youth.

Nowadays more and more people use computers at work and home. They can not tear themselves away from their computers. Especially children and teenagers are hooked on them.

 II. Computers

Do you know a computer’s parts and software? Here are some of them.


Read and learn the parts of a computer.

III. The Desktop

Let’s switch on our computers. Can you see the Desktop?

What is located on the Desktop?

Desktop – рабочий стол

My Documents – Мои документы

My Computer - Мой компьютер

Recycle Bin – корзина

Taskbar – панель задач

Folder - папка

File – файл, документ

We can save on the Desktop our own folders and files.

The My Documents folder is your own personal folder in which you can store your documents, graphics, and other personal files. When there is more than one person using the computer, Windows creates a My Documents folder for each user on the computer.

By default, the target or actual location of the My Computer folder is

C: / Documents and Settings / user name / My Documents, where C is the drive in which Windows are installed. You can change the target if you want My Documents to point to a different folder location.

  • to store - хранить
  • to use – использовать, применять
  • user – пользователь
  • by default – по умолчанию
  • target – задание, план
  • to be installed – быть установленным

The My Computer folder is also located on the desktop. It contains resources of your Personal Computer (PC): Discs (3, 5 {A :}, {C :}, {D :}, etc.) the Control Panel, and Printers.

The Recycle Bin provides a safety net when deleting files or folders. When you delete any of these items from your hard disc, Windows places it in the Recycle Bin and the Recycle Bin icon changes from empty to full. Items deleted from a floppy disc or a network drive are permanently deleted and are not sent to the Recycle Bin. Items in the Recycle Bin remain there until you decide to permanently delete them from you computer. These items stiff take up hard disc space and can be undeleted or restored back to their original location.

When it fills up, Windows automatically cleans out enough space in the Recycle Bin to accommodate the most recently deleted files and folders. If you are running low on hard disc space, always remember to empty the Recycle Bin.

  • items – документы, файлы
  • icon – изображение, значок
  • to delete - удалять
  • to take up hard disc space – занимать место на диске
  • to clean out – очистить
  • empty - пустой
  • to empty - очистить

Taskbar is a panel where Start, English / Russian and Time buttons are located. The Start button allows users to access their computer. We begin and finish working on the computer pushing the Start. English / Russian button is a pointer of the current alphabet. When we operate the computer we don’t need to look at our watch or clock the Time button shows us what time it is.
