Information for Students

At Microsoft, we get a lot of questions from young students—so many that we cannot answer each one of them personally. So we have put together a package of information just for kids that answers most of their frequently asked questions. This information includes key events in our company's history, biographies of our top executives, current facts and figures, and an FAQ.
