    Windows 7 themes for other OS

    Locked

    by mageerauldmfhka ·

    (ot directly relavent to windows 7, I apologise if this is slightly off topic)

    I am a fan of the windows 7 style, and I really want to recreate the look and feel on another OS. I wish I could just use the real deal as my main os, but the lack of software support is an issue for me. So I have settled on theming a different os to look like windows 7. Does anyone know of any theming guides? Would it be worth downgrading to windows 10 first and theming that? Thanks

      On my desktop here I’m using OpenShell from https://github.com/Open-Shell/Open-Shell-Menu . That’s enough for me. But maybe not for you.

      Sure thing! To make Windows 10 resemble Windows 7, start by using a patch tool like “UXThemePatcher” to enable custom themes. Find Windows 7-style themes online and apply them. Use software such as “Open-Shell” to tweak the Start Menu and hunt for icon packs, cursor sets, and wallpapers that mimic Windows 7. For Linux, choose a customizable desktop environment like Cinnamon and install compatible themes and icon packs to achieve a Windows 7-like appearance. Always back up your system before making changes and ensure downloads are from trustworthy sources.

      To recreate the Windows 7 style on another OS, you can find theming guides online that provide step-by-step instructions. Downgrading to Windows 10 is not necessary for theming; you can apply Windows 7 themes directly to your current OS using available customization tools.
