Ivan, You mentioned virtual machine, but I'm not sure that relates to the original post? I've used it in the past to run XP programs at work that weren't capatible with Windows 7. Even then, it wasn't a good experience. It ran in a separate window and was quite laggy. Also, I recommend that anyone using Windows 7 unplug from the internet immediately. The last security update for that OS was 1/14/2020. I don't mean to nit-pick or derail the conversation, but I wanted to add my thoughts on some of the items in your post.
