I am a custo fiend that has a slight ocd of perfection and alignment. I like all colors whether they are flat or loud. The more diverse you let your eyes be, the stronger your creativity will be! Enough about me, it is time to talk about YOU**
Have you ever stumbled upon a Visual Style for Windows 7 that you wanted to use but could not push yourself to keep using it because of the fontface chosen by the original creator? (No hard feelings, everyone has their own tastes) Well, there is a way you can easily change the font face appended to the visual style (theme).
I will show you a way where you need not knowledge of coding but the simple skill of reading. Yes. However, there are 2 and only 2 additional programs/tools that you will have to obtain yourself to modify the original set font to the desired font of your choosing.
Litestep 101: Reoccurring Issues.Just an old journal I wanted to re-do since it got a lot of attention from 2013.More Like This
I'm here to offer you a fix to the annoying explorer taskbar that will pop up while using litestep as your shell. I realized that some of the litestep users (new, intermediate & advanced) are all still undergoing this problem from time to time. I thought it was something I did, maybe I didn't set my shell correctly? Outdated modules? Nah. I did a little reading and came up with a simple solution that works for me. I'm on Windows 7 X64 SP1. So, I'd recommend this registry edit for my fellow Windows 7 Users since I have not tried it on any other Windows. Feel free to try.
I suggest you check your registry entry before even bothering to try to change it. Because if your registry already had litestep as the default shell then I would think you have a different problem. In this case, my registry did not register litestep as the default shell. Even though I'm on litestep, my re

Litestep on Windows 7 (UPDATED)UPDATE: this tutorial has gotten a lot of attention since i posted it 2 years ago.. so i decided to update the information, add information and even a nice video tutorial by andredk which is a little long, but very detailed. i updated the old journal and submitted a new one for good measureMore Like This
installing litestep is not a big deal. it has dependencies like any other application, and without them it will error. assuming your system meets all the requirements right now you can stop reading this and install litestep using the Omar Installer. (omar is the guy who created the installer) litestep was built using the x86 architecture so a x86 system is a prerequisite, however people have managed to install and use litestep on x64 systems.

How to (sort of) get Truetransparency on Win7A lot of people ask me how to make TrueTransparency play nice with Windows 7.More Like This
The short answer is: You can... well sort of.
Here are the general problems (I'm going to assume people with Win7 are on the 64-bit version, or Win7 x64).
1) Explorer windows are not skinned (or any 64-bit programs for that matter).
2) Explorer windows skin, but the toolbar is completely transparent.
First, you will need both TrueTransparency x86 and x64.
For your convenience, here is a zip with both (x64 can be hard to find): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7100381/TrueTransparency.zip
To skin all windows, you will need to run both the TrueTransparency.exe in the TrueTransparency x64 AND TrueTransparency x86 folders.
At this point, all windows should be skinned (with the exclusion of "special" windows like Google chrome, Command Prompt, GIMP/Photoshop, Task Manager, etc.
You may notice that the explorer toolbar is completely transparent. There are two workarounds for this.
One involves removing the too
How to skin foobar2000More Like This
I've been asked to write a tutorial on skinning foobar2000, because many f2k users encounter difficulties modifying skins or simply using them. I'm not an expert on the subject, I've started by installing a few skins and trying to understand how that worked ; I still think it's the best way to get a good handle on it, though a long and sometimes frustrating way. I invite you to try and see by yourself, to keep in mind that errors come all along and to share any advice, question, difficulty or anything you want to say, may you be new or expert. I also recommend to read this good tutorial (though it's partly based on outdated PanelsUI), maybe this less developed one, some of the very useful Hydr
