user32.dll error fix

What is a DLL?

DLL is short for Dynamic Link Library and is a file  that contains computer code and resources that can be used by multiple programs at the same time. DLL files allow programers to use the same code to add features to multiple programs without having to write new code for each one.

There are many programs that rely on DLL files to function properly so when a DLL file is damaged or missing it causes system errors and program crashes.


What is user32.dll?

User32.dll is at the very core of the Windows Operating System. User32.dll is a basic dynamic link that starts the Windows User Application Programing Interface (API). User32.dll is a DLL that Windows can not do without and if it is missing or damaged Windows will not function.

User32.dll acts as the connection between the operating system and applications you are running on your computer. The user interface gives the ability to create and manage screen windows. The user32.dll interface also includes the basic controls like scrollbars, buttons, mouse and keyboard inputs, as well as other tasks for the GUI (Graphic User Interface).

The user32.dll also includes the SDK (Software Development Kit) which gives users the tools needed to develop and create software using the Windows API and other Windows technology. Every program written for Windows must use the Windows API so having these tools easily available makes Windows a easy operating system to develop for.
