    Oh, where to begin!

    Fact is, you'll be getting many decent suggestions and possibly many not so decent suggestions pertaining to your inquiry so, keep this thread open and check back often.

    Don't expect the ultimate tutorial in one shot.

    One thing you might just try. Run Windows 10 as is without extra cruft like classic shell. I know the knee jerk reaction is to make it more like Windows 7, but until you've tried the OTB experience how do you know you won't like it?

    I speak from experience because I installed all that stuff since Windows 8, and eventually got tired of having to install those things with each upgrade. I now live pretty happily with Windows as inTENded. New to windows 10

    Just a note, Classic Shell has had development stopped, author said Win10 gets too many changes too soon to keep up with it.

    Hello, @ monster212. Welcome to Windows TenForums.

    I agree with hiphopper. How would you know unless you try? 10 is a very customizable system. Features in it are great for navigation and getting work/tasks done with ease and speed. A lot better than 7 for sure.

    And if I may refine it with a quote, which is basically the subject here. A knew way of performing things.

    Classic Shell View topic - Classic Shell no longer in development. Source code released

    3) Each new version of Windows moves further away from the classic Win32 programming model, which allowed room for a lot of tinkering. The new ways things are done make it very difficult to achieve the same customizations
