    Some great additional suggestions in the comments guys, including Nox and Phoenix OS, installing Bliss x86, Lineage OS or Android x86 on a dual boot partition, casting your game from your phone to a smart TV or Chromecast, or using Samsung DeX or Huawei's desktop mode.

    but wait, isnt android a linux based OS? Shouldnt there be a way to get this thing running like normally? I am not sure of the inherent obstacles of doing such a thing BUT they should really consider making a desktop android OS.

    How is security, like anti-virus, anti-theft etc.? Is Firefox or Chrome updating normally? Can you open secured sites like internet banking for example?

    Thank you for posting this video. I am a long ways from being a millennial but I love my PC. I am not into the action games but I love puzzle games. I have been trying to play Churchill Solitaire since it hit the market. I found this video very useful. I got BlueStacks installed with no problem and I have my game up and running. YAY YAY YAY.

    I tried this on a spare test platform windows pc (IBM). It worked, HOWEVER, WHEN THE SCREEN TIMEOUT PRESET IN ANDROID OS ACTIVATED, IT WOULD NOT RESPOND TO THE MOUSEPAD, AND SINCE THE PC WASN'T A TOUCHSCREEN, I COULDN'T REOPEN THE OS! I HAD TO WIPE THE WHOLE PC AND REINSTALL WINDOWS ALL OVER AGAIN! ONLY DO THIS ON A TOUCHSCREEN WINDOWS PC IS MY OPINION! The only input device you have on any computer is mouse, touchpad, keyboard, or touchscreen.

    Which Android emulator for Windows can use Bluetooth right? I need to use Bluetooth with an app that only exists on Android, and i was born into the Windows Master Race, which obviously means my phone is Windows Phone, yes suck it you android nerds it's still the best phone. But anyway back to topic, which android emulator can use bluetooth on PC?
