An operating systems (OS) controls all the workings of a computer, including hardware and peripheral devices. Created in 1985, Windows® is a graphical operating system from Microsoft® that has made it easy to operate a PC. Microsoft continuously upgrades the operating system to enhance features for increased functions. Most business and personal computers run on Windows operating systems due to their compatibility with multiple brands of software and hardware.

A GUI Makes the Computer Easy to Use

The GUI is the interface through which users interact with smartphones, tablets, laptops and computers. Microsoft Windows provides users with a GUI that adapts to user requirements and environments, while making it simple to use a business computer. First introduced in Windows 7, Professional Windows Touch makes using PCs with touchscreens easier and more intuitive.

Get More Done With Multitasking in Windows Operating Systems

The ability to multitask with Windows OS saves you time and increases productivity when there are computer tasks you need to complete simultaneously. If you deal with many open programs, take advantage of the virtual desktop feature in Windows 10 that unclutters the taskbar and organizes programs across multiple desktops. Use Windows 10 Pro 64-bit with a 64-bit processor computer to download files from the internet while simultaneously running a sophisticated analytical program, without worrying that one process will change the data in the other.

Defend Against Cyberthreats With Enhanced Security Features

Windows operating systems and software services come with innovations and security updates that allow organizations to stay up-to-date against threats to their investments. Windows Hello and Microsoft Passport in Windows 10 help businesses get rid of passwords and use biometrics and hardware-based techniques for authenticating employees. Credential Guard protects corporate identities in a hardware-based secure execution environment, while Device Guard protects your device against malware from questionable apps. Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (Microsoft Defender ATP) works alongside antivirus internet security software to protect your computer from malware threats and malicious online links.

Driver Support for Hardware

Microsoft sells Windows operating systems licenses to PC manufacturers to load on tablets, laptops and desktops, so you can get a Windows machine in any shape, size and price range. The OS boasts compatibility with a wide array of hardware due to extensive driver support, which is significant if you want to work with high-powered software for computer-aided design or video editing. As an operating system for the average home user, Windows 10 Home 32-bit has plug-and-use support for third-party add-ons, so you can add a mouse, keyboard, storage drive, microphone or monitor and start working right away. When you update a driver, Windows stores details of the previous driver so you can quickly revert to it if the updated driver is not satisfactory.
