Without downloading software that may already be available on the copy of windows xp, what are the programs available, what are they for and how to use them? Heaven forbid that someone should go out and pay for software that, unknown to the user is free to use and already installed.

There is a whole lot more to Windows XP than solitaire, pinball and internet checkers.
If it's the Home Edition you are referring to, have a look at Windows XP Home Edition Product Information.

I know that you don't know this...but a lot of information on the subjects that you tend to query about...can be found by using Google. The material so found would be much more complete and exhaustive than any response anyone here can give you about these things...and includes written refererences.

Command-line reference A-Z
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
