Run Windows on Mac or MacBook using CrossOver

For those who are new Mac users will wonder, what exactly is the CrossOver? Well, let me answer it for you. Cross Over is an application or we can call it an emulator. In general, your Mac or MacBook is using macOS that is unable to detect or read the applications with .exe extension as this kind of extension will only work in Windows OS. That means you can’t install any Windows application in macOS. So, as the solution, you can install CrossOver. By installing CrossOver you will be able to use any Windows application on your Mac. In addition, the application may not work as well as you install it on a real Windows computer.

If you are sure to Run Windows on Mac or MacBook using CrossOver, the first thing that you have to do is to install CrossOver on your Mac. But how to do it? Here is how.


Visit CodeWeavers > Find CrossOver for MAC > Check the compatibility & make sure your device meet the requirements > Download & install it > Launch it and use it
