2.0 Navigating the Active@ Boot Disk Shell

2.3 System Utility Icons

On the right part of the taskbar is a system tray with a clock showing the system time (Picture 1). At the bottom of the taskbar, today’s date appears, along with the total amount of RAM and the amount of free memory available.

As well, several icons provide quick access to system utilities. To see a “hover box” with additional information about a system utility icon, hold the mouse pointer over one of the icons.

Use these icons to conveniently open these utilities:


If a network is installed, the Network connection icon displays full configuration details such as operational status, IP address, DNS server address, firewall status, and so on.

If a second language is installed, the current language is displayed, along with a hint about how to change the active language.

After you have successfully started Active@ Boot Disk, click Utilities > Explore My Computer. The Active@ Boot Disk Explorer utility appears (Picture 2). You should see all the physical and logical devices associated with your computer along with the RAM drive Boot (X:).
