In this instructable i will show you how to turn your windows 7 into windows xp (it can be used as a prank) but you can still use everything the same way. by the way the thing in the top right hand corner is an acer touch portal thing. i have it because my computer is touch screen.   :D  

Step 1: doing what you need to do

now you need to go into control panel then select appearance and personalization  then select change theme.

Step 2:

then scroll down to the bottom and choose windows classic theme then it will come up with a splash screen then it will change.
to change it back just click on windows 7 basic theme and it will return to normal.
<p>does this work on seperate accounts? i dont want my parents to worry, so i need to to have this on my own windows profile. is that possible?</p>
Why not just open a Command Prompt window (cmd.exe) and run the command &quot;sc stop themes&quot; in it? <br /> <br />If you want to make it permanent, just run &quot;sc config themes start= disabled&quot; instead (note the blank between 'start=' and 'disabled', it is necessary).
Hmm i didnt think of that, anyway most people like using the usfr interface not cmd cos they think its safer
