Many times I use this expresion and I would like to know which is the correct way to say this. I do not know what preposition I should use in this expresions:

  • I installed it on Windows
  • Is that running in Windows?
  • Is it loaded over Windows?
  • How to get used to Chrome within Windows?

Can I use all of them? Is there a general rule?

There is no general rule but only "on" and "in" are possible.

"within" and "over" can't be used with OS or software.

  • How to install fonts in Windows Vista.
  • How to install Microsoft Office 2016 on Windows XP.
