Who Uses or Knows about the Classic Theme within 10?

Who Uses or Knows about the Classic Theme within 10?

I recently found out about it by checking different themes to see if I still have them from a previous Windows Installation. Now, I am sharing this if you upgraded to Windows 10 without doing a clean install, or it could just be there by default as well!

Go to Settings > Personalize (Or right click the desktop > Personalize)

Go to Themes > Theme Settings

Scroll Down to High Contrast Themes.

Click the one entitled "classic"

There you go, you have classic theme on Windows 10!

Tell me if it does not work or what you think about it! Huge Shout out to MajorSky17 about this as we all know he loves the Classic theme!

I thought you said you were going to show the Classic theme on Windows 10, not some ugly Aerolite colour scheme! THIS IS A SCAM D:

Now let me show you how it's really done...

I know about it but I don't use it. I'd rather have an XP theme or a Watercolor theme.

The functionality is still there in the code, just unlinked from the UI and not updated to allow all of the new stuff (like Metro) to work correctly with it. So you can (using various tools such as ClassicTheme.exe) get Windows Classic up and running on Windows 10, just with various broken elements (unthemed taskbar, context menu text issues, etc.). Hopefully Microsoft will reintroduce it in a future update, or a third party will manage to get everything working smoothly enough for it to be used day-to-day.

No, at least, not yet since I use Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter and Standard as main OS on all my computers and laptops (2 computers; 2 laptops) and on my Windows Tablet I don't want to make changes anymore since it runs how it runs (thanks Windows 10) and I don't want to break the OS since It's not that fun to get it back working (thanks UEFI with Asus limits; thanks strange way to fix Windows from a setup cd).
