Graphical User Interface

A graphical user interface, or GUI, is navigated by a combination of a keyboard and pointing device like a mouse, touch pad or track ball. This type of interface presents information in a graphical manner, and uses its ability to display visually lists of commands, programs, and data files to replace much of the typing required in a CDI.

Figure 4 shows the Windows 2000 file viewer GUI, known as Explorer. Most file management functions can be accomplished by moving the mouse; in a GUI very little typing is required.
