How do you make Windows 95 software work on Windows XP?

Not all the programs may work on a different Operating system, but here are some steps to make the software from Windows 95 to work on Windows XP : * Go to the place you installed the software and find the file that launches the software. Usually is an file that has the icon of the software * Right-click on the file and select properties (should be the last option) * Enter the Compatibility tab * Check the box "Run thin program in compatibility mode for:" * Select the Operating system you want your program to run in compatibility with (in you case that would be Windows 95) * Click "Apply" and then "OK" * Run the software again This should fix the compatibility problem for most programs.
