"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."
