I'm looking for software that can change the appearance (change the look windows, start menu, even buttons, etc.) of Windows to look like a mac (specifically, El Capitan). I'd like the software to meet these requirements:

  • Compatible with Windows 10 64bit
  • Does not slow down performance
  • Comes from a trustworthy source (not someone's Dropbox account but behind an actual website/company)
  • Changes the appearence of at least windows (minimize, maximize, & close button) but preferred it would also change actual buttons, loading bars, checkboxes, etc.

Note: This does not have to be free as long it is a one-time purchase and not a subscription.

One that I found and paid for ($10) is called WindowsBlinds by StarDock. It's quite wonderful being that it allows you to change the appearance to not only the look of a mac but also many OS's as well. It changes the appearance of windows, buttons found within them, radio buttons, checkboxes, progress bars, scrolling bars, start menu icon, and more. I have found a few bugs here and there with very old programs but the software gives you the option to toggle what it changes. It even has a styling package called "El Capitan". This software meets all my requirements.
