In Windows 10 or in Windows 11, if you open Windows features (Turn windows features on or off), You might find these three sections (Hyper-V, Virtual Machine Platform and Windows Hypervisor Platform), then what are these three, considering that these options are optional for us to install and use in Windows 10 and Windows 11.
Okay, we’ll just discuss it briefly, reported from Official page Microsoft, Hyper-V is the added component management tool and platforms which will function to create and run Virtual Machines in Windows 10 and Windows 11, it can be said that you can create virtual machines without having to download third party applications such as VirtualBox and VMware, the installation steps themselves are very easy, you can just read on the following WinPoin page : How to Install Hyper-V on Windows 11
For Windows Hypervisor Platformif this component is enabled, it activates user-mode API component which will enable the stack third party virtualization app such as VirtualBox, QEMU and Docker to connect and interact directly with Hyper-V.
Whereas Virtual Machine Platforms this is the component that enables Virtualizations support to run Virtual Machines, this component we know is very important so Windows 11 systems can run Windows Subsystem for Linux and Windows Subsystem for Android on Windows 11.
So of course you can get these three things and optionally install them through Windows Features, where currently all three are in position disabled.
These three parts do have almost the same names, but all three have their respective functions and roles, and of course all three will add to the Windows 10 and Windows 11 systems to become more powerful if the user really optimizes these features.
So that’s a quick look at the differences between Hyper-V, Virtual Machine Platform and Windows Hypervisor Platform, did you activate one of them? or even all of them? comment below guys.
