The main menu in KDE, (the K icon), incorporates all of the available KDE applets and applications, as well as many other applications on your Red Hat Linux system.
You can find the icon on the left of the panel. You open the main menu by clicking once on the icon. You will see the top level of menu headings first. These headings are the major groups into which the applications are placed. For example, to open KOrganizer, the KDE calendar and appointment book, you would open Main Menu K, drag your mouse to highlight the Applications menu listing, then highlight and click once on the Organizer entry in the submenu which opens.
From the Main Menu, you can also access:
The KDE Control Center, an invaluable resource for customizing your environment and locating system information.
A Home Directory listing which will open a browser showing you all the files in your home directory.
The Lock Screen and Logout icons, which will password protect your desktop and allow you to log out of your account.
