You have reached a worldwide forum community for open Microsoft Windows help and support. About Us WindowsForum.com is an open community for Microsoft Windows customers and enthusiasts. It is not owned or operated by Microsoft Corporation, but the website has produced many dozens of instructional YouTube videos, has received over fifty million unique visitors, and has drawn support from Microsoft's well-trained and highly dedicated employees, including, at one time, members of the OS development team. WindowsForum.com is conceptualized by a single idea: Make discussion about Microsoft Windows free and unbiased. Make support accessible and fun. Redefine the forum experience through a dedication to website development as an applied science and an art form. With accounts on MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, and more, Microsoft Windows Forums on Google+ is an extension of the website in a new social networking platform. We are excited to be here! WindowsForum.com is owned by Mike Fara and operated by a team of dedicated supporters. Mike is 7x certified by Microsoft, the Computer Technology Industry Association, and CrossLoop Inc. He works on the business side of the website as a programmer, web developer, marketer, salesman, and chief executive. He is joined by many volunteers from around the world who share similar, and in some cases, even greater levels of expertise. The Migration It may seem new here! WindowsForum.com used to be: Windows Vista Forums (winvistaforums.com) - A forum site, started in July 2005, which merged with Windows 7 Forums (windows7forums.com) several years later.

It has received over 50 million page views. It produced over 1 million YouTube channel views, and offers nearly one hundred instructional videos. While that was going on... Windows 8 Forums (windows8forums.com) - This forum site was started not soon after and altogether became... WindowsForum.com! Now all content and all users are accessible to one platform.
