    thanks for sharing. I downloaded and installed it and I haven't tried yet but if it lets you drag & drop and copy & paste files from your actual OS then that's a total win, 'cos I don't see a different way to play W95 games with this app.

    Still, it is great to have Win95 back. It was my first OS ever and I hold it in high regard despite its flaws.
