What Software Works on Windows 8?

Know Your Bits 1 of 3

There's no need to worry about software compatability in Windows 8. This operating system runs almost all software compatible with previous versions of Windows, but it does have the same restrictions as Windows 7.

The 64-bit version of Windows 8 runs 64-bit and 32-bit software, while 32-bit Windows 8 will be able to run 32-bit and 16-bit software. The 64-bit version can also run 16-bit software, but it may not work perfectly.
