Posted by Jean Paul on July 30, 2013

People who prefer SharePoint 2010 Look & Feel inside SharePoint 2013 can still have it. In this article I will provide the steps to achieve the same.


Step 1: Open Central Administration

Open you SharePoint 2013 Central Administration screen.


Step 2: Create new Site Collection

Choose the Create site collections link from the Application Management group.


Enter the information like Title, Template, Administrator etc.

Step 3: Choose SP 2010

This is the most specific step. Choose Experience version as 2010.


Enter the other parameters & click Ok to create site collection.

Step 4: Test new site

Now you are ready to test the new site collection. On entering new URL, you can see the site below.


Now you are ready with the SharePoint 2010 look & feel for a SharePoint 2013 site.


Please note that SP 2010 is not just a theme but an experience. Some of the advanced SP 2010 experience items will be missing here.
