Computer hardware and software

Dear Folks,

In this post, we will teach you about the computer hardware and software. Generally all the physical parts of computer that we can see and feel and touch those are considered as computer hardware. And the other part which helps in running the computer and other necessary program are known as computer software.

Computer Hardware:

Basically, hardware can be anything that we can touch such as table chair iron and etc.

So in the similar fashion, the parts of computer which we can touch with our hands are

considered as computer hardware such as monitor, keyboard, mouse, CPU and etc.

Computer Software:

Computer software is a program or code which is build to perform a specific task such as notepad.
We can not touch it physically, these are the soft codes written in the editor.

Types of software:

The software is classified into two categories:

  1. Application software: 

    Application software is that software which is used to perform a specific task for the user such as ms word, notepad.

  2. System software: 

    System software is that software which is used in booting up a process of the system or to operate the system and configure it for our use, for example, Operating software.
