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!

Unfortunately, not on Windows 10. The problem is that the taskbar is no longer related to themes and they have no impact on it.
You can only try to play with High contrast settings.


It is under Settings, Ease of Access -> High contrast.

The main issue of this with me is the fact that the taskbar icons in the bottom right of the screen have a black box around them, if you have any info about that id appreciate it.
