Windows 95 Is Now Available As an App. Literally.

Posted on August 23, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows with 22 Comments

We have seen Windows 95 run on almost all kinds of modern devices, including smartwatches with tiny displays. But a developer has now turned Windows 95 into an actual app that you can run on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Felix Rieseberg, a developer working at Slack built an Electron-based app that emulates Windows 95. The app itself lets you enjoy a trip drown memory lane with the full Windows 95 experience. It lets you use almost all the apps, including things like Paint, Notepad, Minesweeper, Recycle Bin, Control Panel, and many more.

Rieseberg is a well-known developer in the Electron world who developed a bunch of different projects for Electron app development. The Windows 95 emulator is also based on Electron (and open-source), which means it is cross-platform and works across Windows, Mac, and Linux. If you are interested, you can give the emulator a try by downloading it right here.
