The Design Views of Windows 95

Microsoft Windows 95 is a major release of Windows from the Personal Systems Division at Microsoft. The design views of Windows 95 is to define a mainstream Windows operating system that would make PCs easier to use, would be faster and more powerful, would integrate network connectivity and manageability, and would preserve the users' investment in software and hardware.

For novice users, the most common features of Windows 95 , such as launching an application, task switching, finding a file, are easily "discoverable" via the TaskBar, with its Start button and push-button task switching. For experienced users, Windows 95 promotes efficiency, customizability, control via such power user capabilities as the Windows Explorer, rich secondary mouse-button clicking, properties sheets, and shortcuts.
