F150 STARTER OR SOLENOID?

1999 Ford F-150

Electrical problem
1999 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles

As I went to start my '99 Ford F150 this morning, it didn't even try to turn-over. All my electronics were on and running (radio, lights, air, etc), I assume its isn't the battery or alternator. I tried it a second time and it turned over which makes me think it has something to do with the starter. If I'm wrong please correct me. My question is how do you know if it is just the solenoid or if it is the starter? Thanks.

The starter and solenoid is one unit on this vehicle. Have you checked the starter relay?
