This trick works on Windows 10 1803 or later. The NeoClassic UI app used to make Windows 10 look like Windows XP is a fork of the discontinued ClassicStart app.
There are some limitations to this new user interface. The File Explorer window and other UWP application windows are not changed.
To revert the changes, all you need to do is right-click on the Start button and select the word Exit. This will exit the NeoClassic-UI application and undo most of the changes. You will need to manually change the background image and accent color.
