Windows XP Theme For Windows 11

Windows 11 is the latest operating system today with many features to help optimize work performance. Along with that, the interface of Windows 11 has also changed a lot compared to the old versions. Users who want to reminisce about the old interface like Windows XP while using Windows 11, this will be the way for you.

Windows XP is an operating system that has stuck with many generations of users when it was released 20 years ago. In case you want to return to the feeling of using Windows XP, this will be the way for you to turn your Windows 11 interface into Windows XP.

1. First, you need to download Retro Bar to your computer.

2. Proceed to extract the downloaded Retro Bar zip file.

3. Access the extracted Retro Bar folder, click on the Retro Bar.exe file and proceed with the installation.

Note: that you must have .NET Core on your computer to install Retro Bar. If your computer does not have .NET Core, a dialog box will appear asking if you want to download .NET Core. You just need to select Yes to be able to access the website to download .NET Core.

You can also visit THIS link to download .NET Core.

Here, select the appropriate download link in the Run desktop apps section and proceed with the installation as usual.

4. After completing the Retro Bar installation process, the Taskbar on the machine will switch back to the Windows 95 interface. Right-click the Taskbar and select Properties.

5. A pop up window appears, in the Theme section select Windows XP Blue and click OK.

Note: In addition to Windows XP Blue, you can also choose other Windows interfaces such as Windows 2000, Windows 95-98...

6. So you have set up the interface to Windows XP on Windows 11. In addition, you can also download the Windows XP wallpaper HERE to create more accents for the interface.

7. After downloading the image, right click on the image, select Set as desktop background, so your interface will look like the image below.

In case you don't want to leave the Windows XP interface anymore, uninstall the Retro Bar software in Control Panel and the interface will return to the way it was.

Above is Installing the Windows XP interface for Windows 11 that I would like to introduce to you. Hopefully, it will give you a little nostalgia for the operating system that was born 20 years ago.
