  1. Windows 95 is now 23 years old, but you can still use it for simple tasks. There is some software that is supported on windows 95. What hardware is compatible with windows 95? Computers from 1995 to 2000 will run windows 95 well. However Any CPU faster then 2.5 GHz will not work without problems to make it work without problems you have to use patch for faster CPUS Download link: https://winworldpc.com/download/c39dc2a0-c2bf-693e-0511-c3a6e280947e I highly recommend to use windows 95 osr 2.5 because it is the latest version of windows 95 and works best. Running Windows 95 in a VM is also an option. When running Windows 95 in VM i recommend to use VMware And Microsoft Virtual PC 2007. However in VMware screen doesn't fill 100 % when using in full screen and virtual pc works only in windows vista and 7 and doesn't support windows 8 or 10 (it is possible to use virtual pc in windows 8 or 10 but it requires patching vpc's files.). Note: If you use windows 95 in VM you will need cpu patch too. If you using VirtualBox You have to download and install Scitech display Doctor Download link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1faF9TlRYkGQElyIFIUPwsmLMo4A_RPZs/view?usp=sharing Also i will need to setup network manually; Network Setup (Only for VirtualBox users) 1. Go to start control panel and add remove hardware. 2. Then windows will prompt you to scan for devices choose no 3. Select Network adapters and search for Advanced Micro Devices and select it. Then find AMD PCNET family ethernet adapter {PCI&ISA) and click next. 4.After installation and reboot go to control panel and click network. 5. Click and add and choose Protocols and add TPC IP. 6.Done Note: if after setup network adapter has exclamation mark remove it and do the steps. Done with basics now we can move to the supported software and tasks.
