    Win10 calculator looks different after fresh installation


    I installed win10 on a fresh SSD using the same USB and the calculator looks different.

    The one I had looked like this :



    Is there any way to get my calculator to look like that again? The win version i have now is 1809 build 17763.1098.

    I get the same for the Standard view but do see a bit of transparency in the coloring, see some color showing through depending on what it's on top of. I'm fully up to date.

    Unfortunately you can't get older versions of Store apps:

    Mine is Calculator 10.1910.0.0 on build 1903 and looks like Berton's.
    UWP apps update in the background relatively frequently.

    I suppose you could consider using a different program, or resurrect the Win 7 calculator (which is easy to do).

    Not for Windows Store Apps.

    The Calculator is a Store app and by default the Store auto-updates all its apps. Once upgraded, there is no way to go back to an earlier version. What you could try is to wipe your install and do a clean install again. Then, before connecting to the internet, turn off automatic updates in the Store.

    Turn On or Off Automatic Updates for Apps in Windows 10 Store


    However, your version 1809 is just seven weeks away from its end of service on May 12, 2020 and you should really be upgrading to a newer version. Unfortunately that would come with a newer version of Calculator too.

    Anyway, apart from some of the keys having changed position what is so bad about the current version of Calculator?

    Bottom line, @Question there is no legitimate way of installing a non-current version of any Store App.

    In the long run, disabling Auto Updates to Store Apps may leave you vulnerable if one you have is issued a Security Update.

    I didn't notice much difference between yours and mine. If considering something else I can suggest Moffsoft, free and quite nice.
    Free calculator software - Moffsoft FreeCalc is a great replacement for your Windows calculator.

    Now that I'm fully awake and on second cup of coffee I do see a difference, clip shows yours is on the left and mine on the right. Looks mostly like a rearrangement of the symbols/keys.
