    About the Microsoft Windows Logo

    Microsoft offers the Windows Logo Program to help customers identify systems and peripherals that meet a baseline definition of platform features and quality goals that ensure a good Windows experience for the end user. The Windows Logo is not intended to communicate the specific technical capabilities of any particular system.

    Products that earn the Windows Logo have been tested to ensure that they meet Microsoft standards for compatibility on the Windows operating systems designated on the logo. System and peripheral manufacturers can license the Windows Logo for use on product packaging, advertising, collateral, and other marketing materials for all systems and components that pass compliance testing.

    Manufacturer Benefits

    Products that carry the Windows Logo for hardware include these characteristics:

    • All components install and uninstall properly and do not interfere with other system components.

    • Each component interoperates well with other system components.

    • All components function normally after the operating system is upgraded to Windows XP/Windows 2000 or any later version of the operating systems for which the system or component carries the logo.

    These characteristics yield these benefits for manufacturers:

    • Increased customer satisfaction

    • Lower support costs

    • Fewer product returns
    Customer Benefits

    Windows Logo Program requirements are intended to support a good user experience with the Windows operating system. In this context, a "good user experience" means a reliable, consistent experience with system hardware, firmware, drivers, and related software components. In particular:

    • The user is assured that a product that has the Windows Logo will be stable when running under the operating systems listed on the Windows Logo carried by that product or listed in the Hardware Compatibility List.

    • The user can easily begin and complete component installation or removal. Installing and using a component that has the Windows Logo will not cause the system to stop working, or otherwise disrupt Windows or other Logo’d software running on the computer.

    • The user’s overall experience with the computer system and the operating system is the same or better after upgrading to a new Windows operating system.
