    Windows 10 Home

    Windows 10 does not have Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode?

    Hello, I am on Windows 10 Home and have a program which must absolutely run in Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode for it to actually run properly, I saw on the internet that Windows 10 does have such a compatibility mode and even down to Windows 95 but in truth it actually only has down to windows vista for me?

    In this screenshot I have my compatibility choices:

    I don't understand, do I need a special update or something| I mean, the compatibility choices are the same for all programs, and I tried on both Pro and Home editions :|

    Try Microsoft Compatibility Administrator, a free program from Microsoft. It allows enabling compatibility modes which are hidden from the property page.
