Yes but that would mean having to actually install the win7 OS so it wouldn't be a software simulation, not so?

I think the closest you can get to doing what you want is using an extension that changes the user agent.

If you have Windows 10 Pro, take a look at Hyper-V -

Exactly why I was going to say. Why not use Virtual Machines? Yep you'll have to install the different op systems but it's very useful. I test different software every now and then and it's mega helpful.
