GUI Stands For Graphical User Interface
A graphical user interface (GUI) is a type of computer interface that allows users to interact with electronic devices through graphical icons and visual indicators rather than text commands. A GUI uses graphical representations of physical objects, such as windows, menus, toolbars, panels, and buttons on the screen instead of text-based interfaces. GUIs were popularized in the late 1970s and early 1980s by desktop computers like Apple’s Lisa (released in 1983) and IBM’s PS/2 (released in 1987). Apple’s Macintosh was released in 1984 with an early version of the Aqua GUI, which is still used today. Microsoft Windows also adopted GUIs while AmigaOS used NewTek Photon Video Toaster hardware graphic acceleration hardware
As you might have gathered, there are a lot of principles that go into designing a GUI. And they don’t just apply to one specific area—they’re not just for programmers or designers. Any aspect of your business can benefit from paying attention to the little details that make it easier for customers and employees alike to do their jobs.
In the end, though, it boils down to making things as easy and intuitive as possible for people who have different needs and preferences than you do. The more streamlined your workflow becomes (for both yourself and other users), the better off everyone will be in terms of efficiency and productivity—which means less time spent doing busywork with good results!
GUI applications are also easy to use. This is because they have a user interface (UI). UIs make it easy for non-technical users to interact with the software. For example, Microsoft Office has a UI that allows anyone who knows how to use a mouse and keyboard to create documents and spreadsheets.
GUI applications have another advantage over command line interfaces (CLIs), which can only be used by more technically skilled users: GUIs are easier to learn than CLIs.
