How to make Win10 feeling like Win7?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know a program that will automatically turns all the extra settings off in windows 10?


I hated the look of Windows 8 and most of 10s stupid menu bar. it also has stupid forced things like OneDrive and Defender that turns itself back on after every restart. I basically just want windows 7 with DX12 support. These stupid locks that stops me from installing programs that aren't certified by windows needs to stop too. M$ is going the way of Apple and forcing you to use the App store for anything you want to download or install. Its funny that that I have to install a 7 year old OS because M$ can't get their act together and make an OS without bloatware.


Anyone have a simple solution to rid of all these stupid Window 10 features and just give me the barebones?

So turn off the features you don't want? OneDrive reactivated itself for the anniversary update, but that's the only time it has popped up for me in a year.


Defender can be forced off...but why?


I don't know what locks you're talking about though...MS doesn't block you from installing any software. Only drivers require signing, and it's been that was since Vista.

There are a few things that you can do.


1. Watch Barnacules "Disable Win 10 Spying - Provacy and Security

He will take you thru all of the Win 10 Settings explain what they do.



2. Download and install Spybot Anti-Beacon.

Barnacules will tell you how to use the software

It is Freeware - like Spybot.



3. One other video is by Tech YES City - How to optimize Windows 10 for Gaming and Power

This video is pretty "out there", but, if you pay attention, has some pretty good suggestions.

I did not implement all of them but some suggestions worked as I wanted them to.,



Hope this helps.

Good luck............

Best solution is Waco's, just turn off features you dislike.


On my personal  W10 new installs I turn off or adjust most apps, features and settings apx. 52,.. and I disable lock screen, sign in screen, so the system boots straight into my start screen. I agree most of Windows apps,features are annoying, unnecessary.
