Have you every wanted to watch YouTube videos on Windows XP, SP3 but only have Windows 10?

No worries! Download a Windows XP SP3 ISO file and install it on your VirtualBox. To achieve full screen just install Guest Editions however you need to change Group Policy setting for unsigned device drivers from "Warn but allow install" to "Silently succeed" on the XP OS.

IE 6 that comes with XP will not play videos and neither will Chrome, but Firefox Mozilla works great.

If I had to connect to legacy equipment I would use a legacy computer.

I have access to two desktops running XP and a laptop running Windows 7.

I use Chrome for the rare occasions that I need to access the Internet with either desktop. IE6 won't work on most of the sites I visit.

The laptop is still a bit more functional, but, it too is rarely connected to the Internet.
