Your computer's operating system performs management and interface tasks that fall into six main categories:
- Processor management involves putting the tasks into order and paring them to manageable size before they go to the CPU.
- Memory management coordinates data to and from RAM (random-access memory) and determines the necessity for virtual memory.
- Device management provides interface between connected devices.
- Storage management directs permanent data storage.
- Application interface allows standard communication between software and your computer.
- User interface allows you to communicate with your computer.
