WinWorld from the past, to the present, for the future

WinWorld is an online museum dedicated to the preservation and sharing of vintage, abandoned, and pre-release software, as well as any and all knowledge associated with such works. We offer information, media and downloads for a wide variety of computers and operating systems. Our collection includes abandonware operating systems (like Windows 3.1 or 95), beta operating systems (like Chicago, Whistler, and Longhorn), abandonware applications (like AfterDark, the epic screensaver software we all grew up with) and more.

We offer all of our content free of charge to any interested party. Whether you're doing looking to go down memory lane and re-visit Windows 3.1, do some research on computing history, or repurpose an old system that can't run the latest and greatest, WinWorld is here to help by providing unrestricted access to our entire library at no charge. We do not accept donations, just download and enjoy. WinWorld provides you with large amounts of downloads and high quality information that other sites can't compare with! Get Windows Abandonware, Games, Macintosh old software and more from our software library right here at WinWorld!

Friendly Reminder

NO! No Windows XP!

Microsoft has asserted their copyright status regarding Windows XP. WinWorld respects this and therefore will not host Windows XP.

Microsoft still supports various incarnations of this software, and its availability competes with newer Windows product sales. Windows XP is not rare or in danger of disappearing, and therefore has no real place on WinWorld anyway.

Anyone who can not comprehend this and requests Windows XP or later will be immediately banned.

EMails now going through SendGrid

Posted by: stitch

We have switched the site and boards to send all site related EMails through the SendGrid SMTP servers in place of our own. This will greatly assist with EMails being delivered to the Inbox and help some other issues like iCloud delivery failures. Please remember all EMails sent by us are for direct site related activity, including signing up for accounts, board topic subscriptions, uploads, and GC responses. We do not send any 3rd party promotional spam and if you ever get EMails like that claiming to be from us it should be reported.
