Re: OT: Win 8.1 and 10?

Richard R. Pope

I like the way 8.1 looks. I guess that is just me. My big thing was
that I had to replace my hardware. I don't buy the pre-made systems. I
am a power user and I always build custom systems. None of my previous
systems had the necessary hardware to support anything beyond 7.

Is it possible to set up Win 10 to look like Win XP
Yes, AFAIK. Configure Win-10 as though your machine has fewer visual
capabilities. It's been possible with previous Win-versions as well.
In Win-7 it's in Control Panel, Performance Options, Visual Effects.
It will not be exactly XP but have simpler looks and graphical
features that you desire. MS does not allow the use of a very limited
machine for Win-10, so I don't know how Retro you can go.
Can't say precisely where in Win-10. I have to admit I'm sitting in
front of a not-yet-upgraded Win-7 machine. Only reason is lack of time
yet and critical machine with users on separate disk, so possibly a
bit tricky. No other Win-machine in sight, just Apple OS X...
