DOS was the most prevalent operating system for IBM PC compatibles prior to the creation of Windows. DOS stands for Disk Operating System, and it’s what you’d use if you didn’t start your computer with Windows as you do now. The distinction was that DOS was a text-based operating system rather than a graphical one.

That meant you had to manually input commands to execute applications or change the operating system. When Windows was initially released, it was only a graphical user interface designed to make the DOS operating system easier to use for newcomers. With the development of successive versions of Windows, DOS was eventually phased out with Windows ME.
