TechTerm_Image 2008.pngWhat is a computer desktop?

Definition: The windows environment uses the image of a desktop, with various objects lying on it, as a working metaphor.

The "desktop" itself is the first screen you see after bringing up Windows.   The "objects" on this desktop are icons that may portray application shortcuts, files, folders, or various types of documents.

Icons can be organized on the electronic desktop just as real objects on a real desktop, by moving them around with your mouse, placing one atop the other, or even throwing them into the recycle bin.
