Does anyone have experience with this? I really don't want to upgrade to windows 10.

Its really going to be a total shot in the dark with how it works for you since its not official supported and games are going to start requiring DX12 and MS first party games require Windows 10 so you might as well hop on board the Windows 10 train or be stuck in the past, MS is basically forcing you to at this point.

Could I buy a intel compute stick with windows 8.1 and just give that to my dad for internet browsing.

Maybe but seriously just use Windows 10 instead of downgrading the PC.

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 submitter 1 point 26 months ago

Would selling my current cpu & motherboard to get a small pc to separately run windows 7 be a bad idea. I would just buy a ssd for my gaming rig and put my current hard drive in the other pc.

Why not win 10?

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 submitter 1 point 26 months ago

Because my father hates the layout.

I'm sure there are some classic shell's for Windows 10 that convert it to look like 7.

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 submitter 1 point 26 months ago

Oh please give a link.

Try this. Appears to be helpful and at least a good place to start.

Not sure I'll have to ask and see if I can turn it off.

To be honest, you should suck it up and do the upgrade. Windows 7 won't be supported in a few years, and Windows 10 isn't too different in appearance from Windows 7.

I am fine with windows 10 but my father works with windows 10 for 8 hours a day and prefers windows 7.

Your Dad is A OK with me , i can't stand Win 10 either and i tried it numerous times and the longer i use it the more i hate it. MS is always changing things and adding things , a complete nightmare to me.

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 submitter 1 point 26 months ago

I am thinking of using an emulator to make windows 10 work similarly to windows 7.

vhfan 1 point 26 months ago

Excellent .

SubNauticaWaterWorld47 submitter 1 point 26 months ago

But I still prefer my windows 7.

vhfan 1 point 26 months ago

Yup, Win 7 for me , i tried 10 numerous times and the more i use it the more i hated it lol.
