    One thing you might just try. Run Windows 10 as is without extra cruft like classic shell. I know the knee jerk reaction is to make it more like Windows 7, but until you've tried the OTB experience how do you know you won't like it?

    I speak from experience because I installed all that stuff since Windows 8, and eventually got tired of having to install those things with each upgrade. I now live pretty happily with Windows as inTENded.

    Just a note, Classic Shell has had development stopped, author said Win10 gets too many changes too soon to keep up with it.

    Hello, @ monster212. Welcome to Windows TenForums.

    I agree with hiphopper. How would you know unless you try? 10 is a very customizable system. Features in it are great for navigation and getting work/tasks done with ease and speed. A lot better than 7 for sure.

    Oh? Thanks for that. Good to know.

    And if I may refine it with a quote, which is basically the subject here. A knew way of performing things.

    Classic Shell View topic - Classic Shell no longer in development. Source code released

    When my XP box died the only new machines available were Windows 8. Rather than go through that steep learning curve I bought a used Windows 7 laptop. Then, after a year or so, I took the free upgrade to 10 at launch in in 2015. It took me no more than two weeks to find my way round and feel completely at home.

    IME a lot of the questions we get asked here about failed upgrades and the like can be traced to well-intentioned 'tweaks' to make 10 more like 7, either third-party tools or registry hacks. My machine has taken all the upgrades in its stride and is now happily running 1709. I put that down in part to 'leaving well alone' and embracing the new features 10 has to offer.
