Hello everyone,

I had win7 and I would right click on the desktop hit Personalize,
in Personalize i would chose Windows Classic in Basic and High Contrast Themes
but i just upgraded to win8 and used the win7 shell thing my brother told me about
mostly everything looks like 7 but I have 8 cool but i cant get the folders to look the way i like them, the 7 shell didnt do it, is there a way to get my old folder look back?

Or is there a way to take files from win7 and add them to win8 so that i could get back to
Windows Classic folders in Personalize?

Thank you all so much
