Windows 10 is a great operating system, but it’s not without its problems from time to time. That said, it’s still a huge leap forward from past Microsoft offerings, like Windows 95 and 98.

If you’ve ever wondered what Windows 10 would be like if it had been released at the end of the last century, then take a look at Windows 10 — 1990s Edition. Who needs Cortana when you can have Clippy helping you out?


  • Forget Windows 10, it’s Windows Vista — 2018 Edition we want!
  • Windows 7 — 2018 Edition is the Microsoft operating system you’ve been waiting for
  • Would you swap Android or iOS for Windows XP Mobile — 2018 Edition?
  • You can now run Windows 95 on Windows, macOS, and Linux
  • Would you swap Windows 10 for Windows 95 — 2018 Edition?
  • Windows XP 2018 Edition is the operating system Microsoft should be making

YouTuber Kamer Kaan Avdan, who has previously created concept videos for updated versions of  Windows XP, Windows 95 and Windows 7, has debuted a new video showcasing his vision of Windows 10 — 1990s Edition.

In the past, Avdan has taken an old operating system and given it a modern makeover. Here though, he’s done the exact opposite and taken a modern OS and given it the retro treatment.

The Start menu in Windows 10 — 1990s Edition still has tiles, but these use the same icons from Windows 95/98, and are for programs (not apps) and features like MS-DOS Prompt, Minesweeper, Paint, and Control Panel.

In Avdan’s video, which comes with the obligatory VHS flickers, Edge is shown loading Yahoo at modem speeds, and Calculator, WordPad, all have a bland gray look to them. Naturally, there’s no Cortana, but Clippy steps in to offer some handy assistance.
