    How to change the start menu and theme in windows 7 to classic?

    I was using windows xp but just few months ago, i have installed windows 7. I am extremely uncomfortable with its improved User Interface. That's the reason why, I want to revert its UI and start menu to classic view just like windows xp. Is there any method to do the same?

    Don't worry.You can easily change the view of windows 7 like windows xp. To change the start Menu, open the Taskbar and start menu properties. If you don't know how to do that then open "Control Panel" and click on "Appearance and Personalization". After that click on "taskbar and Start Menu". Now cllick on "Start Menu" tab and choose "Classic Start Menu">>Ok to change the start menu look. To chaneg the theme to windows classic, open the "Theme" option. You can open it by navigating to Start button>>Control Panel>>Appearance and Personalization>>Personalization>>Theme>>WIndows classic theme. Finally click on "Ok" button and enjoy.

    The Classic view of the Start menu might be familiar if you've used earlier versions of Windows.




    You can make the default Start menu resemble earlier versions of Windows
    Open Taskbar and Start Menu Properties by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Taskbar and Start Menu.


    Click the Start Menu tab, click Classic Start menu, and then click OK.

    The process of changing Startup Scheme to the classic form is easy.

    Click Start--control panel--appearence and personalization--taskbar and start menu--start menu--classic start menu--ok, to set classic start menu as default.

    Click Start--control panel--appearence and personalization--personalization--theme--set teme of your choice and click Ok to confirm, exit, reboot.
