How to Install Oracle VM VirtualBox 6.1 in Windows 10

This article shows you the steps to install version 6.1.18 of the Oracle VM VirtualBox virtualization program, which allows you to create virtual machines on the Windows 10 64-bit operating system and install an operating system such as Windows or Linux.

Oracle VM VirtualBox is virtualization software for x86/x64 architectures created by the German company Innotek GmbH. Oracle Corporation is currently developing it, and with this application, it is possible to install other operating systems known as “Guest Systems” on another “Host” operating system, each with its virtual resources.

Operating systems supported by host mode include FreeBSD, GNU/Linux, and OpenBSD, with which it is possible to virtualize OS operating systems, as well as GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, OS/2 Warp, Microsoft Windows, and Solaris/OpenSolaris.
