Has anyone tried overwriting windows 11 files with windows 10?

I copied the C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Microsoft <<folder and overwrite the windows 11

and this is the result... the old taskbar is back! and i was able to drag it to the sides.

all the functionalities from windows 10 were back. there are some bugs like the task view... if you click it, it will crash the explorer and resets to the default win11 explorer.... and the clock isnt showing...

thats the only things i was able to explore by accident since i dont have a VM and im no expert. :)

I think is just a matter of figuring out which files needs replacing that will enable us to have the old functionalities whilst retaining the windows 11 UI.

i used the build 22000.51. tried it on .65 but it didnt seem to work.

I'm just running the W11 the way it was loaded from Microsoft. If I wanted to see W10, I have plenty of other machines for that.

I did, however, (since Microsoft shuffled all of the same controls to different areas) port the APPDATA/USER files from W10 in order to start out with the desired configs for the entire system until I could find my way around in W11.

There's really no sense trying to make W11 look like W10 when you already have W10 to begin with.

It isn't really the look that I'm after for; its more on the functionality.

I actually really like the fluent design of Windows 11, they definitely nailed it this time, imo.

If you look around all the discussions here and elsewhere, people aren't really concern about its design rather

they're more concern about their workflow being hindered by the new taskbar programming (one of the complains)

that doesn't allow us to simply drag & drop (as we've always did) items to an open app in the taskbar and that is a major

inconvenience specially to those working in multimedia or somewhere were you have to deal with alot of files and the

ability to simply drag & drop them makes your entire workflow more efficient than going through the apps' file menu

and go through all the nested folders and search for those files.

That is my biggest complaint too.

There is a better alternative to using the app's file menu though. Arrange to have the app already open and visible on part of your desktop, then you can click and drag straight into it. Less convenient than the old way (which I used a lot) but a workable solution in case MS never fix this.

Hmmm... Frankenbuilds are not the way to go... I recall messing with downgrades by replacing files and Windows went a bit pre-menstrual - odd issues popped-up can't recall what but anyway - 'hooking' components is better (but more intense and difficult)
