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 on them.
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 additional operating systems known as “Guest Systems” on another “Host” operating system, each with its own virtual resources.
Operating systems supported by host mode include FreeBSD, GNU/Linux, 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.

Step 1: First of all, visit the website below and click “Download VirtualBox 6.1” on the homepage.
Step 2: After visiting the VirtualBox official website, click on Windows Hosts in the “VirtualBox 6.1.18 platform packages” section.
Step 3: After downloading the setup file to your computer, right-click on it and then click on run as administrator. So, you will run the program with the administrator rights of your operating system.
Step 4: Click the Next button directly in the Welcome window. Then, in the Custom Setup window, make sure that the USB Support, Networking, Bridged, and Host-Only adapter options are selected, then click Next.
Step 5: In the next window, click Next to confirm the desktop shortcut, quick launch shortcut, saving of related files, and creation of start menu files.
Step 6: In the Network Interfaces window, you will receive a warning that the network adapters will be reset on your system after this stage and your network will be disconnected momentarily. Click the Yes button to confirm this process and continue.
Step 7: Now, when the VirtualBox virtual machine program is ready to be installed on your system, click the Install button.
