Upgrading to Windows 10: How to keep same look on desktop and tak bar?


I plan to move to the latest Windows 10. How could I keep the same toolbars and desktop organisation?

How about drivers for printers and other equipements. I'm still using an HP1020 printer. Hope to be able to keep it.

How about this forum. Will it be a Windows 10 forum too and managed with the same organisation? Hope so because I'm always "stunt" by the quality of expertise given by it's members

If not, thanks to all, with some patience, had helped me to resolved my problems

Windows 7 32 bit

It has been around for awhile waiting for the official release:

I don't think Windows 8 or 10 has the kind of Glass support Windows 7 has. It is possible to get transparency for Taskbar etc.. but I think you need UXTheme patcher to get anythibg more. I have it on Windows 8. It doesn't hold a candle to Vista and W7 afa Aero. But it is better than nothing as the saying goes.

Edit: You may want to ask here for W10 customizing:
