    Windows 10 Pro x64 FCU - XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing

    The new Calculator does have the scientific option the same as the older version if that is the reason for the request.

    There is, however, a simple way to get the old style calculator and that is the Winaero Tweaker utility available here ... Winaero - Free small and useful software for Windows

    This app gives a simple way to change the look of "annoyances" in Windows 10 and is free - also if you wish you should be able to use the app to make you changes and then uninstall the app and the changes will remain, but I just keep a copy on all my systems for the more technical tweaks

    As Barman says, you can do everything using the Scientific mode of the standard Windows 10 Calculator.

    Or you can download the old Windows 7 calculator from http://www.softpedia.com/get/Science...lculator.shtml It has never caused me any problems on Windows 10,

    Relative to the old calculator, shown in another recent post, the new calculator does not have the following options: inv, int, x^2, dms, yth root of x, x^3, third root of x, scientific notation, exp

    I think that's ALL the app does. It does NOT add any apps that are not already part of Windows. It merely changes the APPEARANCE of some apps, and allows you to change some info, such as OEM. I'm sure these are useful features - but not what I'm looking for today.

    The app does give some LINKS for apps that you might want to add. For example, if you scroll to the end of the options, there's a section "Get Classic Apps". One of these apps is "Classic Calculator". But, it's just a link to a web page (which is how I eventually found the old calculator).

    Unless I misunderstood the question. What's wrong with the calculator that came installed with win 10 ? It has all options that you can think of:

    Try using it to find the nth root of a number - the cube root of 8, for example.

    Bree & OldGrantonian,

    The Win10 Calculator can find the nth root of a number. If Windows 10 was not an experimental, undocumented OS this information would have been put in its Help system.

    To find, for example, the cube root of 8 in the Scientific mode of the Windows 10 Calculator:-

    • Press 8
    • Press the Up arrow [between 1/x and Pi] and you'll see the alternative key labels appear

    • Press the y{root}x key
    • Press 3
    • Press =

    [The answer turns out to be 2]

    If you want a proper scientific calculator, why not try some of the emulators about? I use an HP42S on my Windows, Linux, Mac and Android devices.
