That would be beyond the scope of this forum...you would need a book to explain, in detail, the workings of an OS.
Here is the OSDev Wiki, not Wikipedia:

No one is going to explain everything about an OS in detail, like Grey Wolf said it's a big topic to cover. But if you ask a more specific question we can probably answer it. To get you started, in its most basic sense an Operating System is a suite of software that standardizes1 the way that other software communicates with hardware.


1: These standards very from one version of an OS to the next.
