The operating system helps us run the computer and acts as the interface between us and the machine components, which includes the components active in processing the booting up of a computer.

An operating system helps us input our instructions and generate some output of data or information. For example, we may input URL address instructions for eNotes.com and receive the output of the entry page to the eNotes website, or we may input instructions for a saved file to be attached to an email and receive the output of a shared file that flowed from one part of the computer to another. 

One can get a number of different operating systems for computers and use them as per the needs, such as uploading software instructions (like uploading instructions to activate an antivirus software program) and processing data (such as processing virus data identified by the antivirus software).

Windows from Microsoft is the most famous operating system series, with the latest operating system, Windows 10, just launched few months ago. APPLE's computers use OS, while many people like to use Linux based operating systems. All these operating systems enable saving, retrieving and deleting of files.

Now you know that operating systems help boot-up your computer; control input and output operations and the flow of data; upload software instructions and process data; and enable saving, retrieving and deleting of data.

Hope this helps.
