Microsoft Windows applications are ...

In the case of "Microsoft Windows", windows programs are software applications that are run on a computer that is also running Microsoft Windows as an operating system. A software application, or program, is a set of logical conditions grouped together to perform some function. Typically a Microsoft Windows application will be run within a "window" although that is not a requirement. A "window" in the context of software is an area of the screen set aside to run a single program and may or may not have options for controlling the position and size of the program area.

Some examples of Microsoft Windows applications are:

  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer
  • Notepad
  • Mozilla Firefox
