Create,Share, and Enjoy Movies on Your Computer With Windows Movie Maker, Windows XP Home Edition delivers great software that helps you create, edit, and share the home movies you make with either an analog or digital video camera. When your movies are complete, you can view them and share them with family and friends using Windows Media™ Player for Windows XP.

Communicate Any Time, Anywhere, with Your Computer Because staying connected is more important than ever before, Windows Messenger in Windows XP Home Edition provides features that let you communicate online with your friends and family any time, anywhere. Now it's easier to contact anyone, whether they're just across town or all the way on the other side of the country. What's more, Windows XP has improved the way audio and video are processed and transmitted across the network, delivering an improved experience.

Record and Share Your Memories with Digital Photos, Windows XP is the best Windows operating system for working with digital photographs. You'll find support for digital cameras and other imaging devices, easy ways to view and manage image files, and lots of interesting ways to share photos with friends and family-including sending them by e-mail, posting them to a Web site, or printing them.

Discover, Download, Store and Play Your Favorite Music Windows Media™ Player for Windows XP is the true all-in-one way to enjoy music and video on your computer. Windows Media Player for Windows XP maximizes your system resources, creating high-quality audio and video files that take just over a third of the storage space as MP3 and other media file formats. That means you can store and enjoy more music on your computer.

Share All Your Home Computing Resources In many households, more than one person uses a single computer. Whether you have one computer or a whole network, whether your peripheral hardware includes a single printer or a wide range of devices, and whether you connect your devices and computers with conventional cables or new wireless technologies, Windows XP Home Edition helps everyone in your home access all of the resources they need, from printers to the family photo collection.

Designed to be the best operating system for home networking, Windows XP supports a complete set of home applications along with the infrastructure to support even richer experiences coming in the near future. Windows XP makes it easy for every computer on a home network to share a single connection to the Internet, to access peripheral devices including printers and CD-ROM drives, and to make files such as digital music or photos accessible to everyone. Windows XP supports wireless and home phone line network (HPNA) connectivity, which means you can set up a home network without having to drill holes and run cable. What's more, Windows XP Home Edition can be used as the server for Windows XP Professional, so you can take your work laptop home and plug it right in to your home network.

User Profiles Make Everyone's Computer Experience Unique User Profiles allow everyone who shares a home computer to create a distinct profile that has all of their favorite settings saved. Now, when you log on to your account, you'll find your choice of wallpaper on the desktop, the sites you've chosen in the Favorites folder in Internet Explorer, your preferences for viewing folders, and more.

The New Welcome Screen: Keeping it Personalized The Welcome screen can be personalized for everyone who uses a home computer. When you create a User Profile, either during Setup or from the Control Panel, you can personalize the Welcome screen by adding a photo or illustration next to your account name. You can also set a password on your account if you choose.

Fast User Switching Makes it Easy to Share a Computer With Fast User switching, you don't have to close the applications you're working on when someone else needs to use the computer. You simply switch out of your account and let the other person log on to his or her own account. For example, if you are working on a spreadsheet and someone else needs to check for an important e-mail, all you have to do is log off and let them log on. When they are finished, you just log back on-your spreadsheet and the other applications you were using will be open and waiting for you.

The Network Setup Wizard Guides You Through the Networking Process When you're ready to set up your own home computer network, the Windows XP Network Setup Wizard walks you through all the steps, making it easier than ever to link computers and devices. With a home network you can share files (including music and pictures), multiple printers, CD burners, and more.
