    How to get normal calculator back?


    I don't use touch, I don't have touch, I don't want touch. So why am I locked with a monster big calculator?

    Is there a way to get the old small calculator back? I have tried to just copy the calc.exe from windows 8.1, but that don't work.

    If that can't be done, does anyone know a free small calculator-program?

    Just found this...


    WinAero extracted and reproduced the standard Windows calculator.

    I hadn't noticed the calculator had changed. I quite like it and seems to have more functions than the old one.

    Thanks for the link. That's the kind of calculator that I want to use.

    Hi there

    Actually I quite like the new one - and it works well with Touch on an HP envy touch sleekbook - even when running as a VM on a Linux Host. I like also the memory and History at the side too. For a really quick calculator I always use my phone - there's a zillion android calculator apps out there (free) for your phone -- probably a load for iPhone users too -- take your pick.

    Cheers

    Winaero is awesome, thanks!

    Now we need to get rid of 'Settings', every other touch app and bring back Media Centre

    The calculator used by Windows 10 is the "metro app" version, which means there is a 1-3 second delay from launching it until you can enter anything. Also every couple of weeks or so it will ask you to rate it in the app store... useless trash.

    You also can't paste from Excel into the new calc. app.
