Re: Customize Windows XP to look like 95

These screens are for Windows XP. These for login: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/XrenZAMqR-8/hqdefault.jpg https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-CpVHDHmSVQQ/USAko6EmFxI/AAAAAAAAKus/x7VY1T-jJUQ/s1600/Screenshot+2013-02-12+at+22.48.41.png And these for logoff: https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-0P_k-ppIHJM/U9--4WkMv9I/ …

Re: Customize Windows XP to look like 95

@theelf: Did you manage to transform both Windows XP logon and logoff screens into W95 versions? The thing that bugs me most about XP are the icons, boot, login and logoff. Edit: wouldn’t it be easier to do that on Windows 2000 instead of XP? I have a very stable Win2k VM and I’m happy with that, …

Re: Customize Windows XP to look like 95

About your keyboard, i understand some games dont use the 4,8,6,2 keys as left,up,right,down true? maybe you can make a autohotkey script with something like this loop { Numpad8::up Numpad2::down Numpad4::left Numpad6::right } This will remap numpad keys to control keys, you can check if works for …

Re: Customize Windows XP to look like 95

shut.gif I success!!!! one of the last things i did not make was the shutdown dialog! finally discover how to do 2 things: 1 - Avoid the fade off and replace with checkers pattern 2 - Change the menu to match 95 one Not only this, as a bonus.. the "Restart computer in DOS mode" what does is close …

Re: Customize Windows XP to look like 95

Interesting to see that you are customizing the XP shell in order to look like the one from 95. A question though: how did you manage to remove the "Links" option in the main menu bar in windows? I am using Stardock Windowblinds on my system in order to give it a sort of mix between the Windows 3.x …

Re: Customize Windows XP to look like 95

95 and 98 are indeed faster than XP at rendering 2D GUI elements. If you install Windows 98 (not even 95) and then XP on the same computer, something slow like a 486, then try to open some window (not a file manager or IE window, even) you will find that 9x loads the elements much faster, while XP …

Re: Customize Windows XP to look like 95

I don't think that is right though. If you have a 486 or a Pentium 1 the extra IE layer in shell of course make slow explorer, but in a fast machine is impossible to see any difference, and still, this is nothing to do about 2D performance Even in my 5x86 133mhz with PCI S3, NT4 perform better at …

Not that 2D performance is very taxing even on a 486. I understand he is talking about how the OS use the 2D acceleration to render desktop and other …

Re: Customize Windows XP to look like 95

you guys are right for the wrong reasons. 95 speed has nothing to do with 2D performance. It's fast becasue the shell is minimal. It's also less functional. Windows ME Shell is the same shell as windows 2000 and XP is Windows ME Shell 2.0. Thats why it's slower. Its slower becasue it has more …

Re: Customize Windows XP to look like 95

NT 2D performance is much much better than any 9x What tools and on what did you test it? On all former and currently existing dual-boot machines (9x \ XP), rendering the interface for 9x is much faster. my eyes only, in my life, never ..but never see win9x perform better tan NT in rendering …

Re: Customize Windows XP to look like 95

The main problem of Windows XP is that the "classic themes" are not perceived in them the same way as in Windows 95 and other 9x similar systems, due to lower 2D performance under absolutely equal conditions. That is why it is so pleasant to work in 9x systems. Since updating the interface elements …
