This report shows the Operating Systems (O.S.) most used by visitors to your site utilising a desktop device.
In the report called “Desktop Operating Systems”, all visits to your site are classified according to which Operating Systems (O.S.) were used by visitors to your site utilising a desktop device. The first table provides the following information:
  • Number of listed Operating systems, that is the total number of Operating Systems (and their versions) used to access your site utilising a desktop device in a given time period
  • Total visits    
  • Visits from Desktop Devices (% out of the total number of visits)
  • Visits from Mobile Devices (% out of the total number of visits)   
The Operating Systems (and their versions) are listed in the table herebelow grouped by Operating System.

Filters
  •  Time period: by using the drop-down menu you can filter the data for the time period you want to analyze.
  • Advanced calendar: you can select specific time periods other than those available with the drop-down menu "time period", thereby choosing freely the time period to examine.
    For more info on using the Advanced calendar, click here.
Pie Chart
The pie chart shows the percent distribution of all visits utilising a desktop device using different Operating Systems (O.S.) in a particular time period.

Trend Chart
This chart allows you to compare the performance of the most used Desktop Operating Systems (O.S.) to visit your site.
So you can identify which desktop operating systems are becoming more or less relevant to your visitors at a glance.
On the horizontal axis, the chart shows the days or the months of the represented period and, on the vertical axis, the number of visits for the first four Operating Systems (O.S.) used to visit your site utilising a desktop device in the same interval.

It is possible to choose a different graph chart by clicking on the icon corresponding to the graph type (FL means "Flash Chart").
For intervals no longer than 6 months the chart shows a dotted line representing the 7-day mobile average.
For the other intervals, the chart shows only the 7-day mobile average.

The real time data and the daily forecast for the current day are represented in different colors. The color-coded chart is available only in case the 'Latest 31 days' interval is selected.


Table
Each line of the table shows the following information:
  • Operating System (O.S.): it shows the name of the Operating System used to visit your site utilising a desktop device
  • Visits: it shows the total numbers of visits to your site utilising a desktop device for a given Operating System
  • Percent (%): it shows the percent of visits to your site utilising a desktop device for a given Operating System, out of the total numbers of visits
  • Daily Unique Visitors: it displays the total (intended as the sum not de-duped) daily unique users who visited the site using the considered Desktop Operating System
  Clicking on the “Day-by-day” icon in connection with each Operating System, you can access the report showing the trend of daily unique visitors and visits to your site using a desktop device for a given Operating System in a particular time  period.
