Bring Windows 8’s Start Screen and Charms Bar to Windows 7

Are you a Windows 7 user jealous of the fancy tiled Start screen Windows 8 users get to play with everyday? You could upgrade your OS and get that tiled goodness for yourself, but that isn’t cheap. If you’d rather get the look and feel of Windows 8 without having to leave Windows 7 behind, you have an option.

Ryan Dube of MakeUseOf recently posted an article describing a unique Windows 8 theme you can install over Windows 7. This theme, called the Windows 8 Transformation Pack, allows you to install a pseudo Start screen complete with bundled apps, modern Chrome and a Charms bar if you want it. It doesn’t exactly work like Windows 8, you don’t have the ability to download apps from the Store and you can’t customize the tiles as you can in Windows 8, but it’s a great option if you want the look without the upgrade.

If you think this is a cool theme, spread the news. Let your friends try it out.
