    After clicking on the icon of internet explorer on computor desktop, the computor screen shows the page of yahoo. Do we call the showing of the page of yahoo as the window of yahoo?

    eg. My computor showed the window of yahoo means I have gone up to Yahoo.

    For the icons appear on the computor desktop, do we call them applications?

    eg. I have a lot of applications in my computor desktop.

    For all the messages printed inside a box pop up on the computor screen while I am surfing , shall we call them all as windows?

    eg. A window popped up and warned me the computor is going to turn off.

    You can open or bring up a window by double clicking on a desktop icon.
    I open my internet browser to look up some (or to search for) information about unemployment.

    No, it's your Yahoo home page. Or you open a website in your browser.
    You opened the Yahoo home page in your browser.

    Some icons are for applications, others aren't. They're all desktop icons though.

    I'm not sure what you're referring to. System messages and/or warnings are in pop-up windows.
    A pop-up window warned me that the computer is going to shut down (or restart).

    Sure. Or you're browsing.
