Windows 95 ISO Download

Windows 95 is the successor to Windows 3.1x and the first operating system in the 9x family. It was released in 1995 and Microsoft ended extended support for Windows 95 in 2001.

Windows 95 merged Microsoft’s formerly separate MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows products. It improved the graphical user interface (GUI) and the “plug-and-play” feature. In addition, it also moved from the cooperatively multitasked 16-bit architecture to the 32-bit preemptive multitasking architecture.
