Creo parametric's user interface is an intuitive, user friendly experience. This Getting started PTC Creo Parametric 3.0 Tutorial will guide you the menu's and tool bars in Creo parametric 3.0 and basic settings and there application while designing a 3D part model. This include how to open Creo parametric, various basic graphics tool bars, saving a file , opening a file etc.

Starting Creo parametric in Windows

Creo Parametric 3.0 will Run in almost all Windows versions including Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10. Windows XP is not supported for Creo parametric 3.0 . If you are a student and studying Creo parametric you can download a free copy of Creo Parametric as I mentioned earlier or you can watch the video on Youtube. It's absolutely free for educational purpose.
After Installing Creo parametric you can see the shortcut of the software created on your desktop. You can double click on the icon and open the software.
if the shortcut is not visible on your desktop you can open it from your start menu,
All programs > PTC Creo > Creo parametric 3.0 from the start menu ( If you installed version 2.0 click on Creo parametric 2.0 )
Or you can simply search the software name Creo in the search bar of Windows 7/ 8/8.1/10
The opened window will look like below mentioned picture

The software window will not be opened in maximized state. You don't need to maximize the window, because the space left is for tool bars. Newly opened tool bars will be located at the right corner. if you maximize the window the tool bars may be hidden underneath
