You may want to consider putting the Windows 7 interface on it if you like that UI better (or even Windows 2000 or XP, if you prefer). Here's a 5-minute EE video Micro Tutorial showing how to do it:

Just uninstall, remove, or disable those crapps. They are of no use anyway.

That does not resolve the question does it?  What if someone wants them.  Not everyone thinks they are crap, I do.  But this customer wants them.

Educate him. They are Crapps, and normal software will always be the better option.

It is hard to educate an 75 year old man.  However I will tell him that experts think they are CRAP.

Will reward if he does agree.

> It is hard to educate an 75 year old man.

Also, a 75-year-old may prefer the interface that he is familiar with, such as XP or W7. So you may want to consider my earlier recommendation of Classic Shell. Regards, Joe

The windows 10 Crapps have only been available for a little more than an Year. I wonder how a anyone, regardless of his age, can't be educated not to use that stuff.
