Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

That ought to be possible, provided your Windows 10 computer has an internet connection, and can use it (or, is configured to use it, if that's necessary.)

What did you have in mind? what do you need advice for?

Note that Windows 10 is likely to limit what downloaded programs it actually runs... it needs those programs to be certificated for Windows 10 use, so fly-by-night and shady programs, or those for really older computers (before roughly Windows XP) will not work.
