(5.2) Making OS/2 Warp Resemble Windows

I prefer Windows. How do I make OS/2 Warp resemble Windows?

Spend some time with the Workplace Shell first. Browse the online Tutorial, Master Help Index, and Information folder. Once you are used to the Workplace Shell, you may find that you will never want to go back.

If you still prefer Windows-like behavior, follow the instructions in your OS/2 Warp printed manual (or consult the online Command Reference) to use the MAKEINI utility with the WIN_30.RC configuration file.

Note that you can run the Win-OS/2 Program Manager "seamlessly" on your OS/2 Warp desktop, and you can use it to launch DOS, Windows, and even OS/2 Warp applications. Using the Program Manager in this way can make even hard core Windows users more comfortable.
