Microsoft Windows 3.0 and 3.1x
In 1990 along with the release of Windows 3.0, Microsoft issued the original version of the iconic 'flag' logo that would continue in one form or the other until the release of Windows 8 in 2012. This logo was tilted after the release of Windows 95.
Microsoft Windows 95
For the release of Windows 95, Microsoft started using Franklin Gothic for branding, and also altered the flag by tilting it and changing the colours.

In 2001, the Windows logo was simplified, removing the black borders and squares flowing behind it. The logo was also given a 'plastic' feel to it. It was created to match Windows XP which had a very clean feel.
Microsoft modified their 2001 logo, getting rid of the plastic feel and changing the font.
Microsoft overhauled their Windows logo to fit in with the Metro design, which uses one-color designs and the Segoe font.
