What's the correct way of expressing IT related software names? From what it seems, many would be using "the Internet Explorer", "the My Computer", "the Firefox" without adding the proper descriptor. For example:
You can find the Internet Explorer on the Desktop; as opposed to:
You can find the Internet Explorer application on the Desktop.
From what I know, it's important to define the subject, especially if it's not something you can touch with your bare hands.
This is similar to expressing:
I'm eating a Jonathan each day.
I'm eating a Jonathan apple each day.
Maybe someone can shed some light onto this matter. Sorry If I didn't post this correctly or if it's a re-post.
Thank you in advance,
Thank you for your prompt response. Somehow, I just wanted to bring into discussion the excessive use of "the" when expressing IT related names/objects/properties. Still, would the form "the Internet Explorer application..." be more correct than just "the Internet Explorer..."?
Is it (really) important/correct to define the object you're talking about in IT/Computers language? Or not that much?
