How to apply this Windows 10 Transformation pack

First, you will need to download the Windows 10 GTK+ theme and Windows 10 Icon theme from this link. Save it to your Download directory. Next, extract the files by right clicking on them and select Extract Here. You should now have two folders as shown on the following picture

Now we need to move those directories to /usr/share/themes and /usr/share/icons. I prefer to use Terminal to do this. Right click on the empty area on your extracted folder and select Open in Terminal to open Terminal. And then, use the commands below to move those directory to the new location.

sudo mv Windows-10-Icons-master /usr/share/icons

And then

sudo mv Windows-10-master /usr/share/themes

Now, Apply the theme. Open Themes from the Application menu (I am using Cinnamon).

Cleanup Step

Finally, right click on the Cinnamon App menu and select Configure. Delete “Menu” from the text and also enable use a cusstom icon option as shown below
