Installation intro, not really an intro, but needing a short name.
April 28, 2006 6:56 AM   Subscribe

What should the first tab for online product installation instructions be named, if that tab presents an intro solely to the instructions, but is not an intro to the overall product demo? Therefore the word "intro" cannot be used.

The word Intro cannot be used, because it is already being used as a "main menu" option in this product demonstration.

The main menu option in question is the Installation Guide, where the first tab gives an introduction to installation, but the second tab is actually step one.

Presently, the first tab, i.e. the intro, is numbered #1, then the second tab, step one is numbered #2, which may confuse people.

The word I'm looking for has to be short and concise, since it is part of a sub-menu bar, with 4 numbers (1-4) next to it as the four installation steps. I hope I explained this properly!

Not "Guide"?

How about "QuickStart" or "ReadMe"? You want people to hit this tab first, right?

"Start"? "Setup"? not that you wouldn't have thought of these.
