Windows 7 Visual Styles

Question

Posted (edited)

I thought it'd be a good idea to start building a list of existing visual styles for Windows 7 whether they are located here on these forums or sites like deviantart.com. At the moment it is hard to find some visual styles and some made for Windows 7 were designed for pre-RTM builds which no longer work correctly. So anyone wanting to contribute, just post a link/name of the visual style, any links to screen shots, whether it's a Windows 7 Basic VS (non-Aero) or an Aero-based VS, and if it's 32 bit/64 bit compatible (try using the format used in the list below if possible. I'll try updating this list frequently. Also, if anyone notices any errors in this list, let me know and I'll fix it.

[b]Note: To use these custom themes (visual styles), you must patch your uxtheme.dll file. You can find a tool to do that [url="http://uxstyle.com/"]here[/url][/b].

[b]Note #2:[/b] Any themes listed as only 32 bit or 64 bit compatible means that certain modified files (such as explorer.exe, system dlls, etc..) only work in 32 or 64 bit. The styles themselves should work regardless (at least as far as I know, though some themes rely more heavily on these modified files more than others).

[b]Note #3:[/b] This list has gotten too big so I am splitting the list into multiple posts. More themes and Aero basic themes are listed in an separate post linked below.

Well you can choose whatever VS you want and either manually [url="http://www.neowin.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=816836"]modify your own explorer.exe[/url] or even mix another visual style's explorer.exe file into it. It really isn't that difficult.

Added another new theme called "Ribbon VS". Pretty nice actually (retains the overall style of Windows 7 while improving on some things).

Ribbon VS is my favorite by far. It's what Windows 7 should look like by default.

The author is very talented, and I recommend everyone go and look at their DeviantART gallery. Many other extremely great themes, icons, and designs can be viewed there.

One of the originals, Impact, wasn't bad at all, but it was too big overall for me.

I haven't tried it out myself, but the author can always use opaque graphics for the Aero portion so that all the Aero functionalities remain.

It still has all the Aero effects. I was using it temporarily but wished it had at least a [i]little[/i] bit of transparency to it. Also some of the fonts chosen aren't as good as the default Windows 7 fonts and some areas of the superbar need to be improved on. I've decided to stick with Ribbon VS until some of these themes become more polished.

Currently using Ribbon VS. Was using Slan before that. But the odd fonts made me change it after a couple of weeks.

The Ribbon VS theme from jordanfc has been reworked by alkhan.
The version done by alkhan, introduce more changes (especially the task bar, I guess),
and hnce I prefer his version.
Currently it is officially for "win 7 rc", but it works fine for me on "win 7 rtm"

Thanks for sharing. I personally don't like that version (not a fan of the task bar in it) but more options is always nice :)

I'm trying to get Ribbon to work on my Win 7 Pro 64bit RTM, I've ran the uxtheme patch and double clicked on the .theme file but all i end up with is the originl aero theme, any ideas?

EDIT: I managed to get SlanXP working, just put it in the wrong folder, however, my start menu button won't change, what's up with that? Edited by e2zippo

Did you make sure to copy the "Ribbon" folder to "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes"? The Ribbon folder path should then be "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Ribbon" with the "Ribbon.theme" file in "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes". The reason the start menu button didn't change is because for that you actually have to replace your explorer.exe -- the procedure is usually described on the Visual Style download page or within a readme.txt file included with the downloaded VS (takes some work with command prompt or a 3rd party app to replace the file due to permissions).
