"3. There are two handy ways to make a frequently used
application more accessible. You can place a link to the
program in your desktop or you can add it directly to the KDE
Panel. To create a desktop link, open the KDE File Manager, locate
the program, then drag it with your left mouse button to an open
spot on the desktop. When you release the button a small menu will
pop up near your mouse pointer, with "Copy," "Move," and "Link"
options -- "Link" is the one you want. To add a program to your
KPanel instead, first click on the "K" menu, select "Panel," and
then "Add Application," and finally the application itself. The
program you selected will be added to the panel. To delete the
application's entry in either place, first click on it with your
right mouse button and then select either the "Delete" (desktop) or
"Remove" (K panel) option from the pop-up menu...."
"5. KDE includes a useful system-monitoring utility, KTop, also
known as the KDE Task Manager. To run it, open the "K" menu (click
on the "K" button on the KDE panel), then the "System" menu, and
select the "Task Manager" entry. You can look at the active
processes on your system sorted by name or the ID of the process
itself or the user who launched the process, and even kill
processes. KTop can also display constantly updated graphics for
the system load, memory usage, and CPU usage, including one chart
for each CPU on a dual-processor system."
