How to Run Windows Software on Mac

How to Run Windows on Mac

Our tests require Windows 7 or later to run. There are several options for installing software that allows you to run Windows and Windows applications on macOS.

1. Virtual machines

You may need a Windows license to install Windows on your Mac.

2. Dual-booting

Apple’s Boot Camp allows you to dual-boot between macOS and Windows. Like Virtual Machines, you will need a Windows license to install Windows on your Mac.

3. Wine

Wine offers a free option that does not require a Windows license. Download WineBottler to get started.

4. Remote Desktop

Users with access to a Windows system can use remote desktop software to access the Windows machine from your Mac’s desktop. Chrome users can use Chrome Remote Desktop to connect to a Windows system from your Mac running Chrome.
