Microsoft Windows Complete History
Do you have any information about Microsoft Windows (MS 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. That's because somebody has never written well about Windows on the Internet before. So today I thought why not give you all the information about what Windows is.

It may also be that most of you have already heard about Microsoft's Windows operating system. But very few of you people will know what an operating system (OS) is and how it works. From today's post, you will also know what works of Windows. Before we came to Windows OS, we have to understand the operating system. So let's know today what is the Windows Operating System

What is Windows?
Microsoft Windows If I talk about it, this is a Graphical interface Operating system that was developed by a famous IT company, called Microsoft Corporation. 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 their product in a word that would accurately define the GUI interface of Microsoft, so Microsoft chose "Windows" word because the GUI (Graphics User Interface) has multiple Windows Different task and program is used to run. 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 A 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 on the computer. With the help of which the operating system decides which length of resources the program will use.

Types of windows
There are many types of operating systems and can be divided in different ways, but the main types of these are only two. So know about different types of windows
  1. Single User OS:- Only one person can use the computer at a time in a single user OS.
  2. Multiple user OS:- At one time, multiple users can work with one or more people on multi-user user OS. Multiple user operating systems are used in large companies etc. where people have to work in conjunction.
