Windows 7: Windows 3.1

I like to play with old versions of Windows, virtually (18 years of Windows evolution...).

Anyone having an idea how to join 3.1 to my network? I get it to internet, but not to be visible to other computers.

The 3.11 for workstations would likely be far closer to what you are looking for there since 3.1 itself was a bit of a stand alone OS for desktops while the offshoot for networking was seen in the 3.11 later to NT 3.1 there.

You could still connect online once IE was available while even that lacked in versions prior to W95. That was more of an option for the previous few versions like 3.1. Those old 14kbs dial-up modems!

Sorry for reviving such old thread, but does anyone know how to make 7 look like Windows 3.11? Most info I've found about that was related to 98/XP, Vista at most and required paid software (WindowBlinds). Is there any program that can make Win7 look like 3.11 that is free?

Note, that I just want windows look like 3.1. I like it for its clean look and even W98 (Classic scheme) is for me too much. However I am too attached to taskbar , so I don't want "full Windows 3.11 experience", including Program Manager and minimizing to desktop.
