Friends ! I told you in the previous post “What is a computer?” I was told that a computer is made up of two things, first software, second hardware. Both these things are needed for the computer to complete. You can understand from their names that software is soft and hardware is hard. Software is the soul of the computer and hardware is the body, both are useless without each other. So a computer needs both of them to become a computer. To understand computer it is very important to understand both of them. I told you about the hardware in the previous post, if you have read our previous post “What is Hardware?” If you haven’t read it, then definitely read it. Today we will learn about the software in this post of ours.
definition of software
Those which we can see and through which we can work but which we cannot touch are called software.
What is software?
Software is used to do any work in a computer. Software is also called program. Both software and hardware are complementary to each other, that is, hardware without software is of no use and without hardware, software is of no use. Work is done on the computer through software. The same software is used for the work you do on the computer, such as a music player is used to listen to songs on the computer and a browser is used to run the internet. Software is used to do any work in a computer. Software in computer is same as application in mobile.
What are the types of software?
- System Software
- Application Software

what is application software
The software using which we complete our work. For example, music player to play songs, photo editor to edit photos, web browser to play internet, etc.
