    you almost certainly can't
    95/98 programs would have been 16 bit and W10 will only run 32 bit / 64 bit programs.

    The last OS with any sort of comparability for 16 bit program was XP and to some degree W7

    The only way to run that sort of program is install a VM on W10 and install XP / 95/98 on that VM, but even that is extremely difficult because of the way W10 uses graphics and internet capabilities even under a VM
