A virtual machine allows you to try out a new operating system or app risk-free. Here’s How to run a virtual machine on Windows 10.
If you need to run more than one operating system on your Windows 10 PC there are several ways to do it. You can have separate hard drives for each OS, and connect only the one you need before you press the power button. Or, you can dual-boot two or more operating systems on the same hard drive, with each version of Windows or Linux – say – in its own partition. Here, though, we’ll show you how to install another operating system in a virtual machine so you can start it up on your Windows desktop whenever you need it.
