Describe a graphical user interface and the Ribbon GUI.
A user interface is the portion of the application that allows you to control and to interact with the
program. Almost all applications use a graphical user interface (GUI) that displays graphical elements
called icons to represent familiar objects. The mouse controls a pointer on the screen that is used to
select items such as icons. Another feature is the use of windows to display information. A window
is simply a rectangular area that can contain a document, program, or message. Many Microsoft and
other applications use an interface known as the Ribbon GUI to make it easier to find and use all the
features of an application, this GUI uses a system of ribbons, tabs, and galleries. Ribbons replace
menus and toolbars by organizing commonly used commands into a set of tabs. These tabs display
command buttons that are the most relevant to the tasks being performed by the user. Galleries
simplify the process of making a selection from a list of alternatives.

List the four types of general-purpose applications, describe what each application is used for, and
give an example of each.
The four general-purpose applications are word processors, spreadsheets, database management
systems, and presentation graphics. Word Processors are used to create text-based documents such
as letters, memos, faxes, and reports. Microsoft Word is the most widely used word processor.
Spreadsheet programs organize, analyze, and graph numeric data such as budgets and financial
reports. The most widely used spreadsheet program is Microsoft Excel. A database management
system is a program that sets up, or structures, a database. It also provides tools to enter, edit,
and retrieve data from the database. Microsoft Access is one of the most widely used database
management systems designed for PCs. Presentation graphics are programs that combine a variety
of visual objects to create attractive, visually interesting presentations. Microsoft PowerPoint is an
example of a widely used presentation graphics program.

Describe graphics programs, including desktop publishing programs, image editors, and illustration
programs.
Desktop publishing programs, or page layout programs, allow you to mix text and graphics to
create publications of professional quality. Professional graphic artists use desktop publishing
programs to create documents such as brochures, newsletters, newspapers, and textbooks. Image
editors, also known as photo editors, are specialized graphics programs for editing or modifying
digital photographs. They are often used to touch up photographs to remove scratches and other
imperfections. The photographs consist of thousands of dots or pixels that form images often referred
to as bitmap or raster images. Illustration programs, also known as drawing programs, are used to
create and edit vector images. While bitmap images use pixels to represent images, vector images,
also known as vector illustrations, use geometric shapes or objects. These objects are created by
connecting lines and curves. Because these objects can be defined by mathematical equations, they
can be rapidly and easily resized, colored, textured, and manipulated.

Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of cloud suites or online office suites.
Online office suites are stored online and are available anywhere you can access the Internet.
Documents created using online applications can also be stored online, making it easy to share
documents and collaborate with others. One downside to cloud applications is that you are dependent
on the server providing the application to be available whenever you need it. For this reason, when
using online applications, it is important to have backup copies of your documents on your computer
and to have a desktop office application available to use.
