When it comes to Windows 11 changes, one thing that most would agree is that aesthetically, the new OS looks quite a bit different than Windows 10 was. Perhaps it's also because the appearance is essentially the User Interface that users are constantly interacting with making it naturally more noticeable.
However, not everyone is a fan of the changes. For example, the centered Start Menu is something many dislike, and hence some of them, the capable ones, like one of our readers, Dot Matrix, made one in the classic Windows 10 style.
Likewise, a new tool, dubbed "Rectify 11" by MikeRosoft6009, is being worked on that is looking to redesign some of the elements of Windows 11. The project claims to include design changes in:
- Setup theme
- Microsoft Management Console (MMC)
- Administrative Tools
- Start menu (StartIsBack comes integrated within Rectify 11)
A future version (v2) of the application promises to bring fluent Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) icons too.

Here is a list of it's current changes:
- new setup theme
- changed outdated icons in MMC, system tools and start
- all startisback patches
With more coming soon in V2 such as Fluent WinRE#Windows11https://t.co/9nUl3gZdAL pic.twitter.com/eO03sEboBT
Version 1 (v1) for the application is available for download which you can find here. Bear in mind that this is an unofficial third-party ISO so proceed at your own risk. Also, it is noteworthy that the setup start screen shown above is from v2 and the one in v1 may be slightly different.

Update: As pointed out by some of our eagle-eyed readers, it appears that the developer had unintentionally published a pre-activated WIM (Windows Imaging Format) file with the v1 ISO that it had shared via Twitter user FireCube. It seems they were totally correct and the developer has promised that this will be rectified in the future v2 build version that will be published later. Hence, for those who can't wait, it seems there will be bad news as there probably won't be any v1 available.
Update: there is pre activation but it was unintentional and we didn't expect it to carry over wim files. Anyway will be fixed for v2 but thanks for pointing it out— FireCube (@FireCubeStudios) October 19, 2021
Here is a screenshot from the Rectify 11 website:
Hence, we are also removing the pre-activated ISO which we had linked earlier.
