Travel back in time with this hilarious Windows 95 video guide by Microsoft

Windows 95 is 20 years old today, which to some may seem quite young, but with technology constantly evolving, 20 years is actually pretty darn ancient. Even so, Windows 95 was Microsoft’s first major successful version of Windows, and laid the foundation for what all future versions of Windows would be even to this day. Windows 95 was the first to include the Start Menu and taskbar, two very important and much loved features used today.

Those who were upgrading from Windows 3.11 will know that Windows 95 was a drastic change, but Microsoft was nice enough to provide an awesome video guide which taught users the basics of the new operating system. The walkthrough is an hour long, and hosted by none other than Jennifer Aniston and Mathew Perry from the hit sitcom TV show Friends! No kidding!

The walkthrough is an hour of cringe-worthy, hilarious moments showcasing what we thought was amazing back in 1995. I’ve embedded the video above for your viewing pleasure, if you’ve never seen this before then be prepared for something very special indeed. Let us know what you think of this video guide in the comments are. I don’t know about you, but I kinda want to see an updated version of this video guide tailored for Windows 10, don’t you?
