makotokino: is there a good post on how to make 7 look and feel like windows 2000? Apr 7, 2021 14:41:35 GMT -8
kamuisuki: I think this winclassic.boards.net/thread/456/reversibly-enable-disable-classic-simple Apr 7, 2021 23:45:21 GMT -8
TechSalt: You can use that, however on 7 to enable the classic theme you can just use the personalization control panel item. Apr 8, 2021 4:52:43 GMT -8
Mina: and as well changing some icons Apr 8, 2021 12:59:07 GMT -8
anixx: You cannot use this on Windows 7. Apr 9, 2021 7:10:57 GMT -8
TechSalt: Has anyone ported the IE6 x64 to 10? There is an x64 IE6 on Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. Apr 9, 2021 7:17:50 GMT -8
Mina: yeah, an os being out of support doesn't mean unusable Apr 11, 2021 14:03:33 GMT -8
TechSalt: Can agree. Still using Windows 10 1903, no problems except i have to disable Windows Update everytime. Apr 11, 2021 21:39:59 GMT -8
anixx: No, you cannot use SCT or ClassicThemeTray in Win7. NO WAY! Only in Win 8.1 or Win 10. Not even in Win 8. Apr 12, 2021 8:39:04 GMT -8
anixx: Simply because there was no such memory handle in Windows 7. You simply cannot do it. Apr 12, 2021 8:40:00 GMT -8
Mina: oh sorry i thought you meant classic theme Apr 12, 2021 12:42:05 GMT -8
Mina: i mistaken it Apr 12, 2021 12:42:12 GMT -8
Mina: at least there's a good pause updates option, and yeah, pretty agreeing that the only annoying thing is the darn automatic updates. Apr 12, 2021 12:48:31 GMT -8
TechSalt: Well, i used to use that, but since the pause button expired for me i disable Windows Update now. Apr 12, 2021 21:37:14 GMT -8
ikigai: Does anyone have a way that i can add windows 98 icons to my pc? Apr 14, 2021 14:05:15 GMT -8
TechSalt: Either by resource hacking or using an icon pack (icon packs are not the most accurate thing tho.) Apr 14, 2021 21:06:02 GMT -8
Mina: let me guess how you disable windows update: by disabling the service itself. correct? Apr 16, 2021 11:15:24 GMT -8
TechSalt: Yes, i disable the service every boot up. Apr 17, 2021 0:38:03 GMT -8
Mina: well good Apr 17, 2021 13:42:03 GMT -8
Mina: i will do the same Apr 17, 2021 13:42:08 GMT -8
