Hello,

Is the Windows Classic Look Theme included in Windows 10 release version?
If not, is there a way to integrate the theme and have it work properly?

I assume the Quick Launch bar is still available in Windows 10. Correct?

Thank you for your great work.

Yes, classic, and classic with 2 columns will work. Classic shell will look and behave quite similar across Operating systems, with a few OS specific features/tweaks (like blur in windows 7 for example) or 'disable charms' in windows 8/8.1

Hello Jcee,

Thanks for replying. I really appreciate it.

I meant "Windows Classic Look Theme" (the theme introduced in Windows 95; not Classic Shell). :)
I'm currently using Win 7.

Best regards.

Oh, I don't think it is, and someone likely hasn't unoficially ported it yet. the 'high contrast' themes are available though.

Hello Ivo,

Would you consider developing a "Windows Classic Look Theme" for Windows 10?
(I have no idea as to the amount of work this project might require :) ).

I'm sure there still are millions of users who prefer good old Classic.

Thank you.

No, this is not something I care for. Have a look on deviantart in a few months. Maybe somebody will make one.

I have done a little testing now. and it seems that windows 7 themes will install on windows 10 just fine. though there are likely visual glitches to accompany, and it will certainly look different. Im not so sure about the classic themes, but if you have the file in question (should be saved in: C:\Windows\Resources\Themes) I can try it out and post a screenshot

Hello Jcee,

Thank you so much! It's really kind of you.

The Classic Theme is under the "Ease of Access Themes" folder.
May I ask you to test it as thoroughly as you can? And post a good few screenshots? :)
- I'd be grateful.

Best regards.

Hello Jcee,

Thanks again. I appreciate it.

It looks good, but it isn't the real thing. :)

I've come across this post (originally here).
I've written to the developer asking whether it should work in Windows 10 as well.
I don't know if I'm going to get a reply; so, could you please try it? - I'd be grateful.

Best regards.
