Q: Do you
know of a Windows XP Easter-Egg?
A: Nope. There shouldn't be any. The US government will not buy software with "undocumented features", and thus Easter-Eggs were banned!
What is an Easter-Egg?
A: A secret message or screen buried in an application. (For more info click the egg)
Q: Where can I
find Scan Disk?
A: Scan Disk isn't available in Windows XP. In XP there's Check Disk, which can be run from the command line (chkdsk), or by right clicking a drive in Windows Explorer and choosing Properties > Tools > Error-checking.
Q: How do I
change the Start button?
A: Without seriously hacking some files, or using 3rd party software you can't.
Windows XP still have the system resource bottleneck found in previous versions
A: No. Windows NT/2000 never had this problem to begin with, and since XP is based on Windows 2000 (that's why Windows 2000 is Windows 5.0 and XP is Windows 5.1) it doesn't have this problem.
Q: Can I
use different screen resolutions for different users?
A: No you can't. Not without 3rd party tools or drivers. The screen resolution is a "per-machine" setting in the Windows XP registry.
