Graphic User Interface (GUI)

A graphic user interface, GUI, is one of those computer terms that many lay people can’t define even though they use it every single day. A GUI is what enables you to interact with images like icons or click through a menu of options on your computer.

Before GUIs were implemented, people had to use text commands typed on a keyboard to tell the computer what program to run. A GUI allows us to use a mouse on a field of interactive icons to command the computer, or navigate around a smartphone without typing text commands. The first GUIs developed were important to bringing computers in the mainstream where every user could easily learn to run computer programs without learning how to speak to a computer in text commands.

Every window on your computer screen uses a graphic user interface to present you with its contents, such as a website, program, or email message.
