A software technique that allows a rectangular area of a computer screen to display output from a program. With a number of programs running at one time, several windows can appear on the screen at one time. Information can be cut and pasted from one window to another. The best known version of “windows” is that developed by microsoft, although that is but a pale imitation of the macintosh operating system developed by apple computers.
