    I think you need to mess about with folder view settings. Actually I don't use the standard file explorer but anyway you shoul be able to change views.

    Or you can add custom folders or shell locations.

    Sorry, but I dont really see how thats related to a windows xp theme.

    Anyway, so far the best solution i have found is using classic shell to make the start button and taskbar look like windows xp, by using this guide.

    If someone knows how to make the rest look like windows xp as well, please let me know.

    Im going to check it out, thanks.

    Okay, so it seems to install a silver windows xp theme. I also cant seem to figure out how to swap colors to a windows xp luna theme instead. It also broke the windows xp theme on my taskbar.

    Same result. It doesnt work with the taskbar, it breaks the windows xp theme in firefox, and the few places where it actually does change something barely looks like the screengrabs.

    I found this guide, but its going to be a lot of work. Lets see how it goes.

    Well i spoke with the guy, and he said that it doesnt work for windows 10 anymore, and hes most likely not going to be able to make it work.

    So far i got my taskbar and my start menu to look like windows xp, but im still looking for a solution for the rest of windows.
