Specifically the light theme - ok let's get started (processing will take a few minutes - bedtime).

Download 1: (install first)
http://universal-theme-patcher.soft32.c ... ad_manager

Download 2:
Download the windows 10 theme by Mare M from deviant art. Might be nice to say something cool and follow or something.

Download 3:
Next by Alexgal, the windows 10 transform pack. She seems to want donations. You could send Me zesty cheese or jalapeno doritos if you love Me. PM me and I'll give you the address to send them to.

Download 4: (do NOT run the windows aero blur tweak!!! It will wreck your pc.)
Now, you'll need the orb changer by door2windows.
You could use his more modern plugin:

or you could use this one:
http://www.door2windows.com/windows-7-s ... one-click/

or you could make your own and then animate it:

Download 5:
The windows aero tweaker works real good. Maybe send a coffee or something to the maker.

Download 6:
Pick your favourite image from here, an official windows 10 startup image from a collection of hundreds.
https://windows10spotlight.com/

The other tools you need are included in the first two downloads. Follow the steps in the video and you're golden. I did not plan it out; expect deviation of a finite linear scale to some degree.

Edit:
Forget to add, install the cursors by going to this section of the alexgal windows transform pack:

Code: Select all

Windows 10 on Windows 7 FULL TransformPack\Extras\Windows 10 Cursors\Bonus\Installer Cursors
and run:
Windows 10 White Cursors.exe

Personally that's one of the (small) reasons I finally jumped to 10, looked like it belonged in this century :hihi:

It's not perfect, could do with better definition around windows etc but much prefer its flatter style overall.

I tried to install windows 10 twice on this machine, both times errors. Those were the few times I had down time, and then I just moved on due to being busy. One of these days. With a lot of the services in Windows 10 blocked I think it can be better, if your cpu has a lot of power - but it's greedy with resources, same as a car really.
