Computer-related words used by Microsoft Windows 8 Quechua translationEdit

Microsoft Windows has a Quechua translation. This is probably quite groundbreaking in terms of computer terminology in Quechua because it is perhaps the only desktop operating system with a GUI translated into Quechua (at least, Ubuntu and Mac OS X do not have Quechua translations as of May 2013). As such, it is appropriate to document the precedents set by it.

Note that many of these words are very obvious to use, for example "maskay" - "to search" for searching.

Also, the Windows translation is not 100% complete as of April 2013, and many words were borrowed from Spanish.
