Windows 3.1 has become in less than two decades a fossil of the operating system world. want a “back in time” travel experience to the beginning of Windows, version 3.1 is “available” via a browser of your choice. The inverted commas are necessary because the website put together by Michael Vincent doesn’t actually offer Windows 3.1, but rather an emulated experience. “The goal of this site isn’t to create an entirely complete mirror image of Windows 3.1, but rather keep the spirit and omit features when they’re not justified by an effort to usability ratio. For e.g., Notepad lacks a find and replace feature because it isn’t worth the effort. Where features do exist, every effort is made to present them in exactly the manner that they existed in Windows 3.1,” reads the website’s description. “I have also endeavored to put plenty of features in which’re not readily apparent, hopefully making the site a fun and long-lasting process of experimentation and discovery. For example, try pressing the keystroke for full screen mode in MS-DOS Prompt.”
