Last Remaining Windows 7 Users Can Relive Nostalgic Experience with Simple Script
Recent statistics have shown that the combined market share of Windows 10 and Windows 11 has soared to over 94%, leaving only about 3% of users still dependent on the Windows 7 version of the operating system. For those who are still clinging to Windows 7 and yearning for the interface experience it offers, a simple step can help recreate that nostalgic feeling.
By following a straightforward process, users can relive the look and feel of Windows 7 on their current operating system. The first step is to open the “Run” dialog box by pressing Win+R on the keyboard, and then entering the specified command “powershell irm revert8plus.gitlab.io|iex” in the blank box that appears. Once pressing the “OK” key, the script will launch and initiate the conversion process.
However, if the user is currently on Windows 11, it is necessary to disable tamper protection in the virus and threat protection settings first. For those using Windows 8, 8.1, and 10, there is no need to take this action, as the script will automatically take care of it.
This concise command line script is compatible with various versions of Windows systems including Windows 8, 8.1, 10 (versions 1809 and 21H2), and Windows 11 (versions 21H2 to 23H2), with a support rate of over 80% in most cases, and even reaching 100% in some instances.
Upon running the script, users can expect to see various familiar Windows 7 elements reappear, including the splash screen, taskbar, start menu, and the classic look of games. Additionally, elements such as the details pane, command bar, navigation buttons, URL bar, search bar, and features like Windows Media Center will be restored.
It is important to note that this script primarily changes the theme of the operating system’s appearance and does not alter the core functions or cause any functional loss. If users wish to revert to the original Windows 10 or 11 system, they can easily do so by uninstalling all theme-related programs installed by the script.
For those still clinging to the nostalgia of Windows 7, this simple script offers a way to relive the beloved interface while still maintaining the functionality of their current operating system.
