Microsoft Windows is a family of operating systems by Microsoft. They can run on several types of platforms such as servers, embedded devices and, most typically, on personal computers. Microsoft first introduced an operating environment named Windows in November 1985 as an add-on to MS-DOS in response to the growing trend of graphical user interfaces (GUI) popularized by the Macintosh. Microsoft Windows eventually came to dominate the world's personal computer market.

Microsoft Windows operating systems include desktop editions like the new Microsoft Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows ME, Windows 98, Windows 95, Windows NT, Windows 3.11 and older.

There are also server editions like Windows Server 2022, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2016, Microsoft Windows 2012 Server, Windows 2008 Server, Windows 2003 Server, Windows 2000 Server, Windows NT Server etc.
