Do you really want to run an android app physically on a Windows machine? If yes then here is a list of such environments: https://windowsreport.com/best-android-emulators-windows-10/
If you just want to mirror your android phone screen to your Windows machine then get a free copy of ApowerMirror https://www.apowersoft.com/phone-mirror and get you phone screen mirrored on your laptop.

Hi Kevin,

I haven't done this in a few years, so my experience from back then may no longer be relevant, but I'll share it with you. When I first ran an emulator on Windows, it was BlueStacks:
https://www.bluestacks.com/

But it failed on an IP Camera app, so I switched to YouWave:
https://youwave.com/

YouWave handled the app fine and, generally, I liked it better than BlueStacks. Note that all of my experience was with W7...never tried either one on W10.

In terms of more up-date-experience, here's an Android Authority article from this month:

Although I haven't needed this capability for several years, I'm curious about it and would appreciate hearing if you find a modern product that works well. Regards, Joe
