Chapter 3. The KDE System Settings Modules

In order to make it as easy as possible, the KDE System Settings has organized options into five categories. Under each category, there are icons grouped together under subcategories. Each icon is called a module. When you double click on a module icon, you will be presented with the options of the module in the main window.

Each module will have some or all of the following buttons:

Help

This button will provide help specific to the current module. Clicking the button will open KHelpCenter in a new window providing detailed information on the module.

Defaults

Clicking this button will restore this module to its default values. You must click Apply to save the options.

Reset

This button will "Reset" the module to the previous settings.

Apply

Clicking this button will save all changes to KDE. If you have changed anything, clicking Apply will cause the changes to take effect.

Note

You must either "Reset" or "Apply" the changes before changing to another module.

If you try to change without saving or resetting your options, you will be asked if you want to save your changes, or discard them.
