Classic Calculator (Old Calculator)

Microsoft has removed the classic calculator app starting in Windows 10 and replaced it with a new UWP app that receives updates from the Store. Many people aren't happy with this change. The classic app loaded faster, and was more useful for mouse and keyboard users. Here you can get the classic calculator back in Windows 11 and Windows 10.

Here is how you can get it back without replacing any system files or modifying permissions.
