Top 5 Websites to Download Older Versions of Windows Programs

Updated on February 13, 2020

Normally, people would look for the latest version of the software. In most cases, an updated version of software indeed is going to be better than its predecessor, given the fact that its developers must have thought about improvements that they could apply to it. Another valid reason why people change their older version software with the latest one is that the updated versions offer much more flexibility and effectiveness compared to the older version.

However, there are actually some people who prefer outdated software rather than its updated version. Commonly, these people find out that their computer is not compatible with the latest update, thus decide to keep the current version that they have. Another reason, which is not as common but is still a valid reason, is because they are expected to do some kind of research with the outdated software. Such reason is usually for developers who want to learn how this outdated software works.

Unfortunately for them, there is a high possibility that the software developers would get rid of their outdated version to give way to the updated one. This makes it even harder for you to find a collection of outdated software on the net, given the fact that there are only limited places you could rely on to retrieve these older versions of software you are looking for, not to mention that some of them may trick you to download some additional software you do not actually need.
