After five years of launching and updating Windows 10, Microsoft finally announced the Windows 11 operating system on June 24.
Alongside the launch, the company also dropped an extensive and rather confusing list of system requirements preventing many Windows 10 users from upgrading to Windows 11.
Windows 11 brings several new features and improvements to the table, however, the most noticeable is the new look and feel with rounded corners, new Start Menu, icons, etc.
So, if you are eager to experience Windows 11 without enrolling on the Insider Build, then you have landed the right article.
In this guide, we will give Windows 10 a complete makeover with Windows 11 theme, icons and UI. Read on.
Before moving ahead with the steps, do keep in mind that this entire process requires a couple of third-party tools. Also, you will need to download Windows 11 icons, wallpapers, etc from the internet. So, download at your own risk and take the complete backup before proceeding with the steps. GadgetsNow is not responsible if anything goes wrong with your PC. If you still want to proceed with the steps, keep reading.
The first thing we need to do is create a folder and name it Windows 11 Theme. Now, everything you download including tools, wallpapers, etc move them to this folder to avoid any confusion during the process.
Download all the necessary tools and softwares
Download Theme tool:
Head to ‘https://github.com/namazso/SecureUxTheme’, scroll down and click on Latest Release to download the Theme tool.
Download Windows 11 Theme
The theme is available on https://www.deviantart.com/niivu/art/Windows-11-for-Windows-10-882819383. Download it and save it to the folder. Also, note that you will need to sign up to download the theme.
Download Windows 11 Icon pack
Click on this link https://www.deviantart.com/niivu/art/Windows-11-Icon-Theme-874289797 and download the Windows 11 icon pack. You will also need a tool called 7TSP to patch the icons. So, download it as well.
Download Windows 11 wallpapers
You can easily find Windows 11 wallpaper online. Download the one you like. You can also use your personal wallpaper.
Once everything is downloaded and saved in the folder, extract everything and save them in the same folder separately.
Run the Theme Tool as administrator and click on the Install button and restart the system once the installation is complete.
Now, head to the extracted theme folder. From the Windows 10 Theme sub-folder, choose any one theme based on the taskbar thickness and copy it to C:WindowsResourcesThemes.
Run the Theme tool as administrator again, a new theme will be added in the list now with the name of Windows 10 themes. Select any mode between Light and Dark. Click on Patch and apply the button.
Now, run 7TSP as administrator and head to the Icon theme folder, choose from the several options and extract it.
Head back to 7TSP and click on Add Custom Pack, select the extracted file and click on Start patching.
Your system will now start looking like Windows 11, but not completely. We still need to move the icons to the centre. For that, you will need another tool called Taskbar X. Download it, run it and move the icons to the centre. Taskbar X also offers several customisation options for the taskbar. Feel free to play around.
At last, apply the wallpaper and you are done. The Windows 10 will now look much more like Windows 11 in terms of look and feel.
