What is Microsoft Windows and its history

Do you have any information about Microsoft Windows ? Many of you have already used Windows OS, or have used a Windows Mobile. But many in you probably will not have complete information about it.  So today I thought why not give you all the information about what Windows is.

From today’s post you will also know what works of windows software. Before we came to the Window OS, we have to understand the operating system. So let’s know today what is the Window Operating System

If I talk about Microsoft Windows, this Graphical interface Operating system which Microsoft Corporation salt develop by a well-known IT company. Microsoft Windows is a very friendly, popular and the most used operating system. This is a lot of fun among the people due to their excellent Graphical Display and other features. Prior to the release of the Microsoft Windows Graphical OS, users used to work on the MS-DOS OS command line.

Microsoft always wanted to keep the name of its product in a word that would accurately define the GUI interface of Microsoft, so that Microsoft chose the word “Windows” as the GUI (Graphics User Interface). Multiple windows software is used to run different work and program. That’s why Microsoft added a new name to its product by adding the word of Windows to its company name, which was “Microsoft Windows”. Somehow Microsoft Windows was born this way.

What is the operating system?

The operating system is a computer system that acts as a medium between the user and the computer. Computer is a machine so it can not understand our given command. So the job of the operating system is to explain the instructions given by us to the computer. With the help of the operating system, the computer is able to understand the instructions given to us. Simply put, the computer without an operating system will not exist.

The second definition of the operating system can also be that by itself the hardware is organized. The operating system keeps the data of every program in the computer. With the help of which the operating system decides which length of resources the program will use.
