    Can Win8.1 has the function of Win7?
    How to recover them:-
    1. Aero glass : semi-transparent effect, not only the toolbar but also any windows on desktop.
    2. 3D aero : flipping effect
    3. ordinary start-menu : rather than 3rd-party s/w

    Yes it can. Just put any Windows 8.1 installation medium in your computer and upgrade it.

    1. Very likely, search for it on google, I forgot the links!
    2. Impossible
    3. Probably! Copy the explorer.exe file from Windows 7. Problematic.
    :cool:

    Insert Windows 7 DVD > Format C:\ > Install Windows 7

    Answer to 1-3: Don't use Windows 8 or 8.1! Use Windows 7 and be stuck with it for a long time! If Windows 8 is toooo ugly for you then don't use it! I knew a time when new OSes looked different from the before. Very long time ago and sadly gone are these times. Nowerdays if a OS looks diferent it's a realy bad thing. :mad: In these days there were other things like performance and technical and security fetures more important than chrome and good looking and transperant borders. Behold M$ only a OS with superficial good looks is REALY good.
