How Can I Get Windows 7 Back To Normal?

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips

Janice thinks she may need to do something before installing Windows 10: When I first got my Windows 7,  there was a section  that I could click to make it work more like XP.  They say Windows 10 will be a lot like Windows 7. I want to  have everything like 7 before I do the upgrade to 10, so where do I click to take the XP off?

Janice, it sound like you may have installed Classic Shell, a program that made Windows 7 look similar to XP.  If that’s the case, just open Control Panel and select Uninstall a program. You should be able to find Classic Shell and remove it.

If you’re talking about XP mode, which allowed you to run some Windows XP programs in a virtual machine, you don’t have to do anything. That’s just a part of your operating system.
