Get Calculator from Windows 8 and Windows 7 in Windows 10

RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance

In Windows 10, Microsoft ditched the good old calculator app and replaced it with a new Modern app, which we wrote about recently here: Run Calculator in Windows 10 directly. Many people are not happy with this change because the old Calc.exe loaded faster, and was more usable for mouse/keyboard users. If you would like to get the classic Calculator app back in Windows 10, it is possible. In this article, we will take a look at the Old Calculator for Windows 10 program which will allow you to get Calculator from Windows 8 and Windows 7 in Windows 10.

Update: a new version of Old Calculator is available. In this version, I made it possible for the old calculator to "survive" after sfc /scannow, Windows Update and so on. No system files will be replaced any more.

To get Calculator from Windows 8 and Windows 7 in Windows 10, you need to do the following things:

  1. Download the setup program for Old Calculator for Windows 10 from here: Old Calculator for Windows 10
  2. Run the installer. It will look like this:
    old calculator for Windows 10
  3. Follow its steps. After it finishes, you will find the good old Calculator app shortcut in the Start menu:
    Calculator in the Start menu
  4. After you launch it, you will get the familiar application:old calculator for Windows 10 running

You are done. The Calculator app will be revived completely, e.g. you will be able to launch it as "calc.exe" from the Run dialog or from the taskbar search box or from Cortana. It will have the same interface language as your operating system. If you will decide to revert to the Modern Calculator app, just uninstall the Old Calculator from the Settings app\Uninstall a program, see the following screenshot:
uninstall a program windows 10

uninstall calculator windows 10
That's it!

        Thanks Sergey! We’ll see if it sticks, but I really enjoyed saying “Yes” to all of those “You are about to change or remove permissions on system files…” prompts. Heh-heh-heh.

        To be clear, I took ownership of it and disabled inheritance, which removed all existing permissions, and then I added my own permissions back onto it.

    Маленькая проблемка с Old Calculator. Все хорошо, но после установки обновлений Windows 10 калькулятор самопроизвольно заменяется на новый (метро). Изменяются и ярлычки. Причем они отличаются от нового, но все равно запускают новый. У вас есть рекомендации, как исправить? Можно, конечно, деинсталировать и установить снова, но это до первого обновления. Пробовал.
    Спасибо за внимание.

    Hello, thank you for the excellent work. Maybe you can help me with a quick issue. In prior versions of windows, if you used executed the program using your keyboard short cut you could immediately start typing in the calculator. Now in windows 10 if you execute the calculator you then have to click on the open calculator before you can type. Huge drag as though does not sound time consuming, when you need to use the calculator often it is a hassle, especially trying to break the habit of executing the calculator and trying to immediately use it only to be throwing out blanks lol.

    Thanks!!! You are a brilliant genius, man. Kudos!

    By the way, is there any way to manually define the GUI language?
    My windows is in PT-BR. During install, I manually selected English. But when I run calc.exe, everything is in Portuguese… So it seems that the language setting selected on install only applies to the installer, not to the program itself.

    Thanks for the installer! However, running “calc” in a command prompt still runs the new Calculator app. Can you use the “Image File Execution Options” method as well? It is the same method many Notepad replacement software such as Notepad2 uses to replace Windows Notepad.

      In command prompt, there is no way to bind calc1 to calc unless you will use aliases as mentioned here:
      http://winaero.com/blog/how-to-set-aliases-for-the-command-prompt-in-windows/
      I suggest you just to type calc1 instead.
      I will look if Image File Execution Options\Debugger is suitable for calc. Thanks for the idea.

    Hi,

    I have tried it and the installer says all fine, but still the Win 10 Calculator will be shown / used.
    Different reboots and also no change.

    The style isn´t what matters for me. But that you can´t handle the Win 10 Calculator like the Win 7 one (f.e. Bitmanipulation by clicking on the Bits are no longer availabe)

    Any Idea ?

    My new Win10 calculator app is “dumbed” down a little too much for my taste and has this nasty effect where I have to click on it before I can make key entries. This version is simple, allows key or click inputs immediately upon launch, and has the history/memory feature I found useful. The Microsoft Plus calc was more like the default app with a new skin, and the default skin it had was revolting imho. I’d recommend your solution to anyone who asked.

    I noticed someone else asked about this, but I thought I’d ask again as I saw no response. Does anyone know why when you launch the calculator (new or old) in Windows 10 it is not immediately active? When I’m in a random program (a browser), and I hit my keyboard button for the calculator and immediately start typing (as I was able to to in ALL prior versions of Windows), it’s only annoying that the calculator is not active and my numbers are going nowhere. However, when I’m using Excel and I punch the calculator button and start calculating away only to look up to find I’m editing a cell in Excel because the calculator is not active on launch…this REALLY concerns me. It could cause serious issues in my worksheets if I happen not to notice. I know it’s Windows fault, not the author’s (at least this calculator can be used right away! the Win10 calculator days 5-10 seconds to allow typing – I might as well spend the time to find my real calculator!), but was hoping to ask the question here to see if anyone has an idea how to fix?

    Hi Sergey,

    Thank you for the great work! Quick question: In old calculator, when I pressed the calculator shortcut on my keyboard, if it was open, it would only switch to it instead of opening a new one. Now every press results in a new copy of the calc.exe running. Is there a way to make it work like it used to?

    Thanks

      Hmm, I have no idea.
      Quite possible that calc.exe (the old one) is looking for such process running in Windows. If it found calc.exe, it just switch to the running one.
      In our case, the old calc.exe is named calc1.exe. It can’t find calc.exe running, so this can cause those multiple instances.
      It is just my guesses, needs to be checked.

        After taking ownership of the calc.exe and replacing it with your file it would not run. I remember the old version of your calculator used to take over instead of being number 2. Is it possible to download that somewhere?

            The previously mentioned problem that now every time I press the calculator shortcut on my keyboard it keeps opening a new copy of the calculator. The previous version just switched to the already opened version. I understand that the previous version overwritten some system files and that it would not make it past an upgrade but I am happy to keep reinstalling it in exchange to have it work in a way that makes a lot more sense to me. :)

    Make sure you uninstall the existing Windows 10 calculator first, and *then* install this one. Once you do that, the installation works like a charm! Very happy camper!

    Hi Sergey,

    Do you have a way to install this EXE silently with /S or something? Or maybe an MSI file?

    Thanks,

      Use /S. It works.

    Loving this. Even the calc shortcut SideWinder X4 has by default opens it. Good job!

    Why are people who are that smart that they can make a calculator so stupid to make that ugly thing in Win10?
    Thank you for the old calc!!

    I’ve read through the threads here and as a semi-technotard I just can’t figure out what I need to do from the comments for the issue I’m getting which is discussed above. I’m desperatedly hoping to get my old calculator back, I’ve installed this program but it only opens that horrendous Win10 calculator. If I try to reinstall it says it already is installed. I tried deleting the oldcalc uninstall file and re-installing but I get the same result. Can you provide me a step-by-step outline of exaclty what I might do to get this working? I’d be incredibly grateful to have my old calculator back in action. Many thanks!

    In the next update of this can you change the name to Classic Calculator? “Old Calculator” looks unprofessional when pinned to start.

    I actually like the new Windows 10 calculator. But since the Anniversary Update broke almost ALL UWP apps on my system, including the calculator. This was a extremely helpful….

    If you can avoid the Anniversary Update, do so…. they released it way too soon….

      What do you like about the Calculator? It is slow on even slightly older PCs, has no menu bar and most functions are hidden inside one stupid hamburger menu button. You cannot even have unit conversion next to the calculator.

    Sergey, you made my day. Finally I can recover my lost productivity.

    What an abomination, the Win10 Calc. Removing functions while making it bigger? That’s the opposite of progress!

      Yeah, that new calc, it is against the good sense.

    After the anniversary update, the old calc looses focus upon launch. One has to click on it in the taskbar before numpad will work. Not sure if this is fixable…

    As per a few comments when I click my CALC button on the Windows keyboard it brings up Old Calc but you have to click to regain focus.

    Also another issue – though I was able to powershell the old one off the taskbar, there is no “pin to taskbar” option for this.

    Huge thanks for the port!

    Correction: My work PC (Enterprise) just received the WIndows 10 Anniversary update and I have lost all PIN/UNPIN to taskbar functionality. The calculator focus problem appears to be intermittent – sometimes it works (press calc button or click program) and sometimes it does not.

    At home (Pro) I have not received that update and both pinning and focus appear to work fine. I can press the calculator button and focus is correct. (OTOH, focus could be intermittent and it has just been working any time I need it)
