A Beginner’s Guide to the Windows System

The windows system is a popular operating system that is used on the majority of computers. Its features include a Graphical User Interface, multitasking and support for many peripheral devices.

The windows system also includes a task manager that displays the current tasks and applications running on your computer. It also shows how much memory, CPU and disk I/O they use.

Task Manager

Task Manager is a utility that monitors and controls processes, applications and services running in your Windows system. It’s a handy tool for identifying and resolving issues, terminating stubborn software without restarting, and optimizing your system and network performance.

The Processes tab lists all running programs and apps, as well as Background processes and Windows processes. It lets you close them, bring them to the foreground, see how they’re using resources, and more.

The Performance tab shows you CPU and memory usage, as well as disk and networking details, in real time. You can also choose a “Percents” view of resource use, or a “Values” option that shows the actual level of available resources being used.

Search Box

A search box is a rectangular field on a screen that accepts typed-in text in order to look up something or launch a search.

Users often use the search boxes on websites to find information they can’t find otherwise (like the right answer to a question, for example). To help them locate it, you should place your search box clearly so that users know where to click when they need to submit their query.

The input field and the submit button should be designed carefully, using rounded corners to make them look more attractive. In addition, they should be labeled with concise button text.

Event Viewer

The Windows system “logs” every significant activity while it runs, making Event Viewer an essential tool for troubleshooting various errors and warnings. These can range from system crashes, to Blue Screens of Death (BSoD) and more.

The application helps you see all of these logs in one place, and it’s a handy tool for troubleshooting problems with your PC or tablet. It also lets you track processes so that you can pinpoint a specific error and determine if there’s a fix for it.

The logs can be organized by type under different categories, including Security, Setup, Applications and Services, and Forwarded Events. Each event includes a level and source, which can give you additional information about the originating process or component.

File Explorer

File Explorer is a Windows file management application that can be used to navigate folders and files on your computer. It also allows you to copy and transfer two or more files simultaneously in a single window/screen.

A folder’s view can be arranged in different formats, including thumbnail image arrays, icons, lists and details (name, size, type, date, time). Customizing the display is easy using File Explorer’s templates.

The File and Folder List displays all the files and folders you currently have open. It also shows you the name and icon of each item.

You can use the Search text area to search for files and folders by name or keyword. Windows will update the search results as you type them in.

Control Panel

Control Panel is one of the most important parts of your windows system. It is a set of various programs that help you to change and adjust many different settings in your computer.

It also helps you to change the settings of your hardware, software, and security etc. These settings can be used to perform a wide range of functions like changing your desktop background, setting passwords and power options, audio and video settings, and other system settings.

Control panels can be included as part of the Windows operating system, or they can be installed by third-party applications. For example, if you buy a new mouse for your computer, it may carry with it a CD that installs control panels specific to the mouse. Some graphics cards also install additional control panels to give you more control over your machine’s visual settings.
