Windows Shell

The Windows shell is the main graphical user interface in Microsoft Windows, and since Windows 95 has been hosted by Windows Explorer. The Windows shell includes well-known Windows components such as the taskbar and the Start menu. The Windows shell is not the same as a "command-line shell", but the two concepts are related. The Windows shell is also not to be confused with Windows' window manager (the Desktop Window Manager in Windows Vista and forward or the USER subsystem in previous versions), which displays windows and controls how they look.

Famous quotes containing the words shell and/or windows:

    We want some coat woven of elastic steel, stout as the first, and limber as the second. We want a ship in these billows we inhabit. An angular, dogmatic house would be rent to chips and splinters, in this storm of many elements. No, it must be tight, and fit to the form of man, to live at all; as a shell is the architecture of a house founded on the sea.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    And Saints—to windows run—
    To see the little Tippler
    Leaning against the—Sun—
    Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)
