Windows is the most used operating system in the world developed by Microsoft . The word Windows was used for the first time in 1983, and the beta version was released on this date. However, Windows was launched for the first time on November 20, 1985, in the sense that it was available to users.
Windows is briefly the name given to the operating system produced by Microsoft. Useful graphic interfaces use visual messages. It provides ease of operation, such as running programs, giving commands, and performing fast operations.
The biggest feature in the society is that it is easy to learn. Thanks to this convenience, it has been the most used system. Many versions of Windows have been released so far. These are respectively;
