What is Microsoft Windows? How do I know if my computer has Windows?

Microsoft Windows is the operating system used by the vast majority of users of the commonly called Pc. These are all the equipment that we know as laptops and tower or desktop computers.

Call them what you want, the safest thing is that your computer is made by one of the great technology companies, such as Sony, Samsung or Toshiba, and hundreds more companies that have made a name for themselves selling equipment that includes the Windows operating system by default.

It is easy to know if your computer has Windows, since this operating system is characterized by its horizontal toolbar which is located at the bottom of the screen. The start button has the logo of the operating system, so it is very easy to identify.

This in addition to the fact that your computer shows that same symbol when you are turning on the equipment. In addition to this, there are some system applications that open automatically when the operating system starts.

What applications open when Windows starts?

These are too varied, because the vast majority are installed by the user. For example, the vast majority of task managers for printers whose drivers are installed on the computer start automatically.

On the other hand, people who play video games will realize that there are several programs such as Discord. This is a free voice and text chat service, in which you can register for free. Also, there are other application markets, which can also handle an internal game library. An example of these is Steam. This is a market where you can download, install, and play video game titles.

When all of these applications are opened at once, they cause the computational processing unit, or CPU, to suffer from a problem called over traffic. This causes the entire operating system to slow down.
