  1. A question about using older windows shells...


    Hi all,

    Classic shell gets old after a while, and after testing Cairo and disliking it I thought "I wonder if I can take all the shell files for explorer and stuff on an older version from and use them on Windows 10."


    So here's my question: If I were to take all the shell files, like explorer and stuff from an older windows version (to make windows 10 look exactly like the older version), and put them on the 10 installation, would that be possible?

    :)
