Stardock's offices will be closed in observance of the holiday season from December 19th until January 5th, 2015.

During this time there will be a delay in answering support tickets, so we ask for your patience during the holiday period.  While we will keep tabs on the tickets during the break, we will respond to them as quickly as possible upon our return.  

On behalf of the Stardock staff we wish you a happy holiday season and look forward to the new year!

WinCustomize skins to make Win8 look like XP?

Turning the clock back 12 years...

So my Dad is... well... a nostalgic fellow. He hates change, and so now that his machine is dying and he needs to get a new one, he hates the idea of using the Windows 8 interface. I've seen some great start menu replacements and boot-to-desktop hacks to make a Win8 box more like a Win7 machine (that's what I do at home) but I wonder if there are any skins to make a Windows 7/8 machine look more like Windows XP.

Thoughts? I know I could set him up with a virtual machine but I'd rather not do even more tech support for him than I already have to.

Thanks, Aidan

Hi aidan77474,

Here is a screenshot of how I made Windows 7 look like XP. It includes the elements to build the XP themed desktop. Good luck on your search. Let me know if this helps.
