Windows is a “graphical interface operating system” created by a famous IT company called Microsoft Corporation.

This operating system is used to manage and control different devices.

For example, computers, laptops or smartphones use Microsoft’s Windows OS to manage and control them.

Microsoft Windows is the most popular, popular and widely used operating system.

Due to the modern and high quality graphical display and features, this OS has become popular nowadays.

As such, Microsoft Windows was the first operating system to be accessed through Graphical Display.

However, before the advent of this advanced and modern operating system, people used the command line of MS-Dos OS.

The reason why Microsoft Windows is so popular and famous is that this OS is very easy to use.

When we install Windows OS on a computer device,

Then that device became useful for the use of common people.

Because, after installing Windows, you can easily do different things in your computer device.

For example, using different applications, storing files, playing games, watching videos & movies, using internet etc.

The first version of Microsoft Windows was released on November 10, 1983 with version 1.0.

Since then, however, many improved and updated versions of Windows have been released.

Currently, Microsoft Windows 10 is the latest Windows version.

Windows OS is widely used in personal computers (PCs) at home and in the office.

So you understand, “what is windows“?

Windows is a GUI-based operating system.

Why was Windows named?

Now you may be asking, “Why was Windows named after an operating system?”

But the answer is very straightforward,

Earlier operating systems had command line-styled interfaces where computers could be instructed using separate command lines.

However, Microsoft Windows was a modern GUI-based OS where each content, file or software was opened on Windows with a different screen.

That is, if you open an application, it will open in a separate windows screen,

And again if you open another application or media file at the same time, it will also open in a separate window screen.

Therefore, this operating system was named “Windows“.

And, thanks to the convenience of Windows operating system opening in these different windows screen, Multitasking between computer devices has become much easier.

What is operating system?

I have already told you about the operating system.

However, since Microsoft Windows is an operating system (OS),

So if you want to understand what OS is first.

Operating system can also be called system software.

Its main function is to manage computer hardware, software resources, etc. and to help computer programs to work.

It is important to have an operating system for any type of computer device.

Again, an operating system is a computer system that acts as a means of establishing a connection between the user and the computer.

We all know that computer is a machine and computer cannot understand the instructions given in our language.

So, in this case, the job of the operating system is to explain the instructions given by the user to the computer correctly.

Through an OS the computer can understand the instructions given by each user and thus provide the output.

Simply put, users cannot use it without an operating system.

What is the function of Microsoft Windows?

Windows does all the work that an operating system does.

  • Managing computer hardware, software resources, etc.
  • Creating a simple environment for the user to use the computer.

Because,

1. Windows 7 operating system will work much faster in any low hardware configuration system.

Auto updates and security features are a must see in this version of Windows.

Gaming, official work or entertainment Windows 10 is the best with me in every case.

However, keep in mind that your computer must have at least 4GB RAM and a good dual-core or quad core processor to install Windows 10.

Otherwise, the computer may slow down or hang.
