Link doesn't work.


Probably because it was moved to the windows 7 utilities section.

This is pretty slick. Can't wait until the rest of the theme is finished.

Is it just me, or did a lot of links get fried in the upgrade to IPB3?

Post any new good ones if you happen to find them while re-linking them.

I'd be grateful if people could post a few links to skinning sites with lots of windows 7 themes. There doesnt seem to be that many around. Deviantart is good but so hard to navigate these days (is it just me). Thanks in advance.

Hi Everyone,

Just have a couple of questions.
First off, can someone please point me to a step-by-step guide/tutorial on how to install these aero based visual styles for Windows 7? I installed uxstyle, however now I'm not sure what else I need to do.
Furthermore, will any of these themes using uxstyle or with any patching I may have to do hinder my computer's performance in any way after installing a new style/theme?

Thanks a lot!!

1. After installing uxstyle, you can go and download a theme you like. Take, for example, hmm7 (my favorite theme so far). Open the .zip (or sometimes, .rar file), and in there you should find at least two things. One, a <name>.theme file, and a folder called <name>, where "<name>" is the name of the theme. For example, for hmm7, the files are "Hmm7.theme" and the folder called "Hmm7".Copy these two files into your theme directory, which is found here at: C:\Windows\Resources\Themes. After you copy them, just double click the <name>.theme file, and it should open.

Sometimes the theme can have you optionally change a few system files (optional!), which requires you to replace system files. You can find a guide for that somewhere if you search. The system files are mainly used to change the start button, so it's not required.

2. I don't think so, or, if there is, it's very slight.


hope it helps!
