Unable to find Windows Simulator for Windows 10 machine


  • Is there any available Microsoft Simulator for Windows 10? I have seen and used it in Windows 8.1, but couldn't find that option and neither MSDN blogs are helpful w.r.t this issue I face.

    Is there anything that can be done inorder to get the Simulator activated for Windows 10 machine?

  • Hi Shahanaz R,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.I

    As far as I know, Windows simulator runs based on your own machine OS.

    I did a  test in my side . My machine OS is win10, and I use both VS 2013 and 2015 to create a UWP project, run simulator and they are all show the Win 10 environment.

    If you want the Microsoft Simulator for Windows 10, you could upgrade your OS to Win 10 or choose another machine with Win10 OS.

    Best Regards,
