1500 Windows 3.1 programs and games for free in your browser

1500 Windows 3.1 programs and games for free in your browser

Back in the early days of home computing, way before the modern Internet, Windows 3.1 ruled the PC world. The days of DOS weren't quite over yet, but more people embraced the idea of multitasking and using a mouse. That showed in the programs available for Windows.

Now you can relive those glory days with a brand new software library over at the Internet Archive. You might remember that we previously told you about its library of more than 2,000 DOS games. It's expanded that with 1,500 Windows 3.1 programs that you can use in your browser.

There are five collections covering games, shareware, desktop toys, productivity and a showcase of the best items. Some of the classics you'll find include SkiFree, Brickbuster, WinRisk, Castle of the Winds, TDK Pinball Machine, WinTrek and much more.

You can also fire up a stock version of Windows 3.11, which is a great way to appreciate just how far we've come in design and technology. There's also a demo for Windows 95.

Look through the archive and have some fun. Then let us know in the comments if your favorite game or program made it.
