(REQ) Win 10 7 edition

Post by RobDie » Tue Oct 01, 2019 4:38 pm

Hello guys,

I am wondering why / if noone cares about making Windows 10 look and behave as good as possible as a "Windows 7" like the "Windows9" based on Win8.1 embedded industry pro.

is there no such project going on somewhere? I searched around but never found something "complete" just walkthroughs to like download ClassicShell :D

The most that can be done really is Classic Shell + OldNewExplorer + a Windows 7 theme + AeroGlass, but even then it looks really inaccurate. Microsoft screwed up the theming in Windows 10 greatly, so caption buttons are fixed size (unlike XP/Vista/7).

Classic Shell, God Customizer, OldNew Explorer, Winaero Tweaker, Desktop Gadgets, Classic Calculator, Classic Personalization Panel, Aero Theme, Glass8, Windows 7 Games, Classic Task Manager, Classic Event Viewer, Classic Sticky Notes, Classic volume/battery/calendar popups, Classic UAC, Disable Lock Screen, Classic Microsoft Configurator, Microsoft Anna Text-To-Speech voice, Windows Media Center, Windows Journal, that's pretty much as close to Windows 7 as you're going to get. You can't change the logon screen in Windows 10, The boot screen will not be animated, a lot of Windows 7 apps cannot work under Windows 10 due to the kernel jumping from 6.x to 10.0, and Windows 10 is more flat (plus modern UI apps do not accept theme changes).
