Thinix RetroUI™ Pro is an easy to use software application that makes your Windows 8 based PC work and behave as if it were running Windows 7. It allows you to keep all of the benefits of Windows 8 and use Windows 8 Apps, but brings back the easy, intuitive design of Windows 7.
Patent pending Enforce™ technology makes your taskbar visible whenever Apps and the Windows 8 Start screen is active, so users can simply click the taskbar to return to the classic desktop. This eliminates the need for hidden Hotcorners and the resulting confusion most people have when using Windows 8.
Windows 8 version 9200 or later. RetroUI Pro for Windows 8 works with the official release versions of Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro, or Windows 8 Enterprise. Please make sure you download the correct x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) hardware version. Windows 8 RT (for ARM based systems) is NOT supported
Note: Make sure you download the right version for your hardware. The 32-bit version will install on 64-bit machines but will not work!
If you don’t know which version you need, here is a quick way to tell if you have a 32-bit or 64-bit system:
- On your Windows 8 PC, press the Windows Key + X (windows key and the X key at the same time)
- Select System
- Under the System section you will see System type. This will tell you if your system is either 32-bit, or 64-bit
