Its headquarters are located in Redmond, Washington, United States but it also has offices throughout the world.
- How it start? Pioneers of MICROSOFT Bill Gates and Paul G. Allen 1975 made a basic programming language for a personal computer. Afterwards, International Business Machine Corporation (IBM) requested them to make an operating system for their personal computer.

The process of making and installing software continued and by the mid of 1990’s Microsoft was noted as one of the most profitable companies in America.
- Browser: MICROSOFT was flourishing in Software development but Software was not the only thing the world need. The world was near the 21st century so as technology and the commercialization of network systems and the internet as well. MICROSOFT UPDATES itself by jotting the current and future needs of the world and quickly developed its own browser, which was called Internet Explorer. Later they renamed it Microsoft Edge.
- Gaming: Things did not go in the right direction regarding developing their own browser and the company has to face bankruptcy. However, the journey did not stop here. In the early 21st century MICROSOFT entered the gaming industry and created its own video gaming brand Xbox. Later on, they launched Xbox Live and Xbox 360 which hit its competitors in the gaming market.
