    why do people bother upgrading OS's to then change the look and feel of it back to a predecessor.

    Yes - the answer is to downgrade back to Windows 7 or XP

    I don't need to downgrade because i'm using W7 in the main computers.

    I only use the W10 for testing pruposes.

    And yes, i will stay in W7 if there are not solution for that.

    Unfortunately, W7 has a limited support time and W10 is not free for ever...

    The whole purpose of this forum is to help people do what they want (if it can be done), not give useless advices such as install Windows XP!

    All you need is Classic Shell. Apply the classic start menu, to look like Windows 98, then change the skin to classic. Change the taskbar color to gray. You can even change the start button to look like that of Windows 98, using a custom picture. To make minimized windows look more like Windows 98, right-click on the taskbar and select Properties. In taskbar buttons select Never combine.
