Source Code

Step 1 (HTML Code):

To get started, we will first need to create a basic HTML file. In this file, we will include the main structure for our Windows 10 clone.


After creating the files just paste the following codes into your file. Make sure to save your HTML document with a .html extension, so that it can be properly viewed in a web browser.


Let's break down the main components and their functions:


1. <!DOCTYPE html>: This declaration specifies that the document is an HTML5 document.


2. <html lang="en">: The root element of the HTML document. The lang attribute specifies the language of the content (English in this case).


3. <head>: Contains metadata and links to external resources used in the web page.


4. <title>: Sets the title of the web page, which appears in the browser's title bar or tab.


5. <meta charset="UTF-8">: Specifies the character encoding for the document (UTF-8, a common encoding for international characters).


6. <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">: Configures the viewport for responsive design.


7. <link>: Connects external resources to the page.


  • The first <link> tag links to the Font Awesome CSS library to provide icons.
  • The second <link> tag links to a local CSS file named "styles.css" for styling the page.

9. <body>: The main content of the web page is placed within this element.


10. <div class="taskbar">: Represents the taskbar section at the bottom of the page. Contains icons and controls that resemble the Windows taskbar.


11. <div class="desktop">: Represents the desktop area containing icons and functionality.


  • Within this element, there are several icon representations for applications like Chrome, Visual Studio Code, File Explorer, and Recycle Bin.
  • The icons are wrapped in anchor (<a>) elements, allowing them to be clicked like hyperlinks.
  • Additionally, there are pop-up modal sections for sound settings and WiFi settings.

12. <div class="chrome">: Represents a Chrome-like application window pop-up with tabs, a search bar, and bookmarks.


13. <div id="start-menu-modal">: Represents the Start menu pop-up containing user and application options.


14. Throughout the code, various Font Awesome icons are used to create visual elements like icons, buttons, and navigation controls.


This is the basic structure of our Windows 10 clone using HTML, and now we can move on to styling it using CSS.

Step 2 (CSS Code):

Once the basic HTML structure of the Windows 10 clone is in place, the next step is to add styling to the clone website using CSS. CSS allows us to control the visual appearance of the website, including things like layout, color, and typography.


Next, we will create our CSS file. In this file, we will use some basic CSS rules to style our Windows 10.


The code targets various elements within the interface, such as the taskbar, icons, start menu, and various pop-up modals. I'll break down the code into different sections to explain its purpose and functionality:


1. * { box-sizing: border-box; }: This rule sets the box-sizing property to border-box for all elements on the page, which includes padding and borders within the defined width and height of elements.


2. body: This section applies styling rules to the <body> element, which is the main content area of the page. It sets properties like margin, padding, font-family, and disables vertical overflow scrolling.


3. .desktop: This class defines styling for the desktop background, using a background image and adjusting its size and position.


4. .taskbar: This class styles the taskbar at the bottom of the desktop. It sets its position, dimensions, and background color.


5. Various .icons-left and .icons-right sections: These sections define the styling for icons and elements located on the left and right sides of the taskbar. Icons are displayed as background images with specified dimensions and positions. Hover and focus styles are also defined for some elements.


6. .desktop .icon-desktop: This section styles icons on the desktop itself. It defines the appearance of individual icons, including images, padding, border, and text.


7. #start-menu-modal, #wifi-modal, #chrome-pop-up: These are pop-up modals that appear when specific links are clicked. They define their appearance, dimensions, background colors, and animation effects.


8. .triangle, .triangle-2: These define triangles on the top-left and top-right corners of the pop-up modals.


9. .chrome-close: Styles the close button options within the Chrome browser UI.


10. .chrome-bottom: Styles various elements at the bottom of the Chrome browser UI, such as bookmarks, search bar, and points bar.


11. .bookmarks: Styles the bookmarks section within the Chrome UI.


This will give our Windows 10 clone an upgraded presentation. Create a CSS file with the name of styles.css and paste the given codes into your CSS file. Remember that you must create a file with the .css extension.
