A new clean look

Although it is impossible to completely recreate Windows 11 on Windows 10, tweaking office elements with a more substantial visual impact can bring us quite a bit closer.

These elements are:

  • The theme of the window.
  • The icons.
  • The task bar.

Fortunately, it's easy with the right tools.

Compatible operating systems

Disclaimer: We suggest you back up your operating system before using them, even if you are using a compatible version. Take a full backup or, at the very least, create a system restore point before you begin.
Otherwise here are the operating systems compatible with the tools mentioned in the article.

  • Windows 8.1
  • Windows 10 (tested: 1507, 1607, 1809, 1903, 1909, 2004, 20H2, 21H1)
  • Future versions

Change the theme and icons of the window

Download theme Windows 11

The first thing to do is to create a folder and name it Theme Windows 11. Now everything you download, including tools, wallpapers, etc., moves them to this folder to avoid confusion during setup.

Then head to ', scroll down and click Latest Version to download “ SecureUxTheme"

SecureUxTheme is a tool that allows you to install themes not authorized by Windows and available on sites like DeviantArt.

Then go to the DeviantArt site and create an account. Now download the Thème Windows 11 for Windows 10 by niivu .

Save it in the folder we created earlier.

Download icon pack Windows 11

Stay on DeviantArt and download the icons Windows 11 by niivu and save it in the same folder.

You will also need a tool called 7TSP to patch icons. You will also find it on DeviantArt , so it's easier to download with window and icon themes.

Open the folder where you saved everything, right-click on the SecureUxTheme file and run it as administrator. Leave everything as is for now and click Install bottom right.

Restart your computer.

After a reboot, go back to the folder and unzip the theme and icon files you downloaded. In the theme folder you will find a subfolder Themes: Windows 10, with two versions of the theme in two other subfolders.

One offers “Regular Taskbar” and the other “Thick Taskbar”.

Choose the one you prefer, enter the folder and copy everything you find inside (with the keyboard shortcuts CTRL + A then CTRL + C).

Now go to C: \Windows\ Resources \ Themes and paste the theme files ( CTRL + DRAW ).

Run SecureUxTheme as administrator again and this time you will see the new theme you added to the themes folder Windows 10 listed at top left. Choose the variant you prefer (dark or light, with or without address bar).

Click on Patch and apply.

Your desktop will lock for a few seconds and Windows will prompt you to wait while the new theme is applied. When you return to your desktop, the new theme will be used on all windows. You can now close SecureUxTheme.

Install icons Windows 11

Now extract 7TSP. You notice that the executable file does not have an EXE extension but an extension » ee “. Select the file, right-click; click rename and add an “x” between “ee” to change its extension to “exe” and make the file executable.

Run the application now and minimize it because you will need to use it later.

Now a little more file renaming is required. Visit the icon theme folder and enter the subfolder » 7TSP Themes for Windows 10 1903 and older"

There are different variations of the icon theme. You can use any of them, but they are unusable because of their “.remove” extension.

As before, rename them first. But this time, instead of modifying their extension, remove “.remove” completely, including the dot , and leave all of the above as the file name.

Go back to 7TSP and click Add a custom pack . Find and select the icon theme you want to install, then click Start the patch (bottom right of the window).

Finally, restart your computer to apply the changes.

Icons centered on the taskbar

Your system will now start to Looks like Windows 11, but not completely.

We still need to move the icons to the center. For this you will need another tool called Taskbar.

Download one of the “portable” versions of Taskbar X from its official website. The program does not come with an installer, so you must unzip the downloaded file. Then manually create a shortcut to the TaskbarX configurator On your desktop.

Run TaskbarX Configurator and click Apply to use its default values.

The icons on your taskbar will move toward its center. However, unlike Windows 11, the Start button and the status bar will remain on the edges of the taskbar, which will still cover the entire width of your screen.

Congratulation ! Now your Windows 10 looks much more like Windows 11 in terms of look and feel.
