Windows 95 was the successor operating system to Windows 3.x and Windows for Workgroups (WFW). It was a stand-alone 32-bit operating system with many features improved over its predecessors.
These include the redesigned graphical interface, extended file names, and better multitasking capabilities. In addition, Windows 95 made hardware installations easier through plug-and-play (PnP). This method of automatic hardware configuration allowed, among other things, network cards to be installed that could be used to access NetWare, Windows, and Unix networks.
Windows 95 had a display with 32 bitcolor depth, it also had extended multimedia functions and supported the TCP-IP protocol.
