    Windows Classic Look Theme in Windows 10


    Hello,

    Is the Windows Classic Look Theme (the theme introduced in Windows 95) 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.

    Quick Launch Bar technically is still available, although not enabled by default. This shows you how to do it. The article is about Windows 7, but this works on Windows 10. Enable the bar: How to Revert to the Classic Taskbar on Windows 7: 12 Steps Get rid of the labels and move to the left like the old Quick Launch: How to Revert to the Classic Taskbar on Windows 7: 12 Steps

    There is no longer an official Classic Theme, but I'm sure that someone will eventually develop a custom Windows Classic theme.

    Hello You,

    Thanks for the detailed explanation. I really appreciate it.

    I'd read that article, and that's why I've posted.
    - Are you using the latest version? If positive, could you please check it on your machine?
    (I agree it's not likely to change; just to make sure).

    I've set the Quick Launch Bar on my Win 7 machine. Good to know it's still available in 10.

    Best regards.

    Yes. I have a completely new Windows 10 installation and it's updated, but I have no Windows Classic theme. Windows 8 has no Windows Classic theme either, but Windows 8 was released long enough for someone to make a custom, unofficial theme: Windows classic theme for Windows 8 RTM, 8.1, 10 by kizo2703 on DeviantArt In time, someone might make one for Windows 10.

    It's almost like a High Contrast Theme only better in some areas!
