Best all Apps to customize the look of Windows 11

Windows 11 brings a new look to PCs, including a brand new Start menu and a redesigned taskbar. New, however, isn't always better. If you dislike the look of Windows 11, there are plenty of apps that make it easy to customize your PC. From bringing back the classic Start menu to having an animated background, these are the best apps to customize the look of your Windows 11 PC.


The Start menu is potentially the most controversial aspect of Windows 11's design. Microsoft moved away from Live Tiles and removed several customization options in the Start menu. You can bring back a tiled interface and customization options with Start11. A future update will even bring back the option to drag the taskbar to the top or sides of your screen. Start11 is currently in beta for $5.


This app allows you to customize the taskbar of Windows 11. With it, you can round the corners of the taskbar, split the taskbar into segments, and add margins to the taskbar. The app can also make the Windows 11 taskbar act like a floating dock.

Lively Wallpaper

With this app, you can set GIFs, videos, and webpages as your PC's background. It was recently updated to support Windows 11, so it should work well with Microsoft's new operating system.


The native File Explorer got a bit of an update for Windows 11, but it's far from an overhaul. Files is a third-party file manager with a modern design. It works well with touch or a mouse and keyboard. It recently received a major update ahead of Windows 11.

Windows 11 Classic Context Menu

With this app, you can bring back the classic context menu seen on Windows 10 to Windows 11. Be aware that this uses the Command Prompt to edit a PC's registry.


This app allows you to create customizable widgets that you can place on your Windows 11 desktop. It works with Windows 10 as well, but it looks best on Windows 11.


This progressive web app has an ever-growing library of wallpapers, including ones inspired by Surface devices and Windows 11.


Windows 11 only displays a clock on the primary display of a PC. ElevenClock adds a clock to every other display your PC is connected to.

Auto Dark

This app lets you customize when your themes change on your Windows 11 PC. You can use it to specify your wallpaper per display and to switch between light and dark modes automatically.
