enter image description hereenter image description hereMy goal is to make Raspbian look like the good old OS, Windows 7. So far, I have already completed:

  • Installed the Windows 7 theme
  • Installed the mouse cursor theme
  • Changed the background to default Windows 7 picture
  • Changed the menu bar icon

I have all the default Windows 7 .ico images in my downloads folder, and I am wondering if there is an easy way to install all the icons and replace the default PiXflat file icons. Is there a way to do this? I attempted at making my own theme... but failed miserably. Help is appreciated! I loved the Windows 7 OS, and I heard Linux can look like Windows 7. So this is what I am trying to do

    I already installed the Segoe UI font. But if you want to install it yourself, follow these steps: 1. Create a .fonts folder in the /home/pi directory. 2. Paste the font in that folder. The font can also be found in the upload in my original question post.

  • @InvictNL I think you should add the steps to install the font in your answer itself. Commented Apr 19, 2021 at 15:48
