Windows classic theme for Windows 8 RTM, 8.1, 10 by kizo2703 Windows classic theme for Windows 8 RTM, 8.1, 10 by kizo2703
For everyone who prefer classic Windows theme, this is the closest to the original theme.

Just move it to C:\Windows\Resources\Ease of Access Themes folder and use it.

Of course, You can use this theme file on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 8.
Applying the Classic theme will change the Start screen background and tile color to classic view as well.

NEW: theme is compatible with Windows 10 Technical Preview as well!

I'm having some problems with it, like my browser area where you type the site names is just a void. This happens on Opera and Chrome. Anyone with the same problem?

Is the theme still compatible with latest updated version of Windows 10 professional? Will it clash with system updates?

Thanks

Any chance you could make it compatible with Windows 10 RTM? Looks all messed up here sadly.

Also could you maybe add those install instructions to a README.txt file inside windows_classic_theme_for_windows_8_rtm__8_1__10_by_kizo2703-d5dvn74.zip and maybe also include a link to this page?

Thank you!

The button is up in the the right hand corner of the page (as other people have said).  You might have trouble seeing it if you are using a browser extension like noscript in firefox or something else that is blocking a content delivery network. 

I can see the button, but when I click it nothing happens; download does not start.  Reason unknown. 

Solution: Right click the button, copy link location, paste the address in a new tab and hit enter.  The download started just fine and now I have the file.  (Using a dialup connection here, so if I can do it, you probably should have no trouble.)

Hope that helps!

For anyone using this theme, I made a Classic Shell skin & a wallpaper to match this visual style.

If You want real look n' feel of W2k - Windows 7 classic theme, You can download the whole theme, like this: simplexdesignsart.deviantart.c…

But then, You also have to patch the system for unsigned themes.
