After having a really nice graphically pleasing calculator in Windows 8.1, I must say that the "stripped down" version in Windows 10 leaves lots to be desired.  Is there a app in the Windows Store that comes close to offering a Calculator more in line with the calculator that came with Windows 8.1.  I don't mind paying for one.  Any suggestions.

I didn't see one.  If you click on the ugly three lines (misnamed 'hamburger') at upper left, you do find a useful array of conversion types.  But you cannot use the 8.1's calculator (which yes is better), in 10.  When I tried, I got a claim that the dll it needed to run,wasn't available, and it wouldn't tell me WHAT dll, was missing. (I dual boot 8.1 with 10.)


Windows 7 calc.exe won't work, either.  XP's version might, but it's so ugly and sparse I didn't want to try it.  The file is in Windows System32, and also in Windows System32 dllcache .


Sent feedback via Insider program saying bluntly the calculator in 10 looked like a tombstone and was too big for laptops.

Still, it's better than the calculator in older versions of Windows.
