Questions tagged [window]

In computers, a window is one of the fundamental elements of a GUI (graphical user interface), usually rectangular in shape and connected to a process, allowing that process to display output as well as accept input. In modern operating systems, multiple windows can overlap each other and be resized and arranged at will by the user.
