Hello, I am very interested in changing the look of my Windows ui to look like win 98, to be more precise I'd love to have it look exactly like this: youtu.be/wAlUoykHKq0?t=894
I guess I can follow these instructions, but before doing that I want to know if it really works well and if this right click bug is usual? (timestamp url: youtu.be/wAlUoykHKq0?t=584 )
Also, is this pack in the description of the video good, is this what I have to download?
I really don't have any coding experience, I'm not a computer expert by any means, is this something I can just do and it will work so I can do anything I usually do on my computer? (mainly creative use)
I really appreciate that this exists, because I truly dislike the look and feel of Windows 10.
There's a lot of factors you have to take in account. For starters, each version of Windows 10 comes with more bugs with classic theme, so what version are you on/can you go any lower?. Next is how much time you want to invest in it. You can get a near perfect Win98 setup but that takes some time, or you can get a basic Windows 7 classic theme setup in 10 mins. And last but not least you need to accept the fact that with too much tinkering a reinstall might be needed so be careful replacing system files!
Saint Jimmy: hayafumi Not quite, as you'd end up having to replace many a component to get it to function (Explorer is fairly deeply ingrained in Windows's internals), at which point you may as well install 2000 and call it a day.

meow: I have made a tutorial on how to get centered title text in windows 7! It’s in the visual styles section.
