steelOrb, a start orb for Windows 7

explorer.exe for Windows 7 64bits & 32bits (build 7600.16450) included !
Now with the last SP1 versions !

Icons not included : Token by brsev

Wallpaper not included : DREAMS by Psychopulse

THANKS to SolykZ for the french tutorial :)


You can use a resources hacker in order to change it like ResHacker or Restorator.

OR follow this simple tutorial :


Method 1 :

Use this easy-to-use tool : Windows Theme Installer by Kishan-Bagaria

Method 2 :

add a "take ownership" shortcut to your right-click :)
and use the old trick by using the task manager, end explorer.exe, then browse and replace :)

Method 3 : (thanks to yayme)


Don't hesitate to ask if you encounter problems !!!


First, place your shortcut on the desktop, change icon by : right-click > Properties > Change icons > browse..... > OK > OK
only then place this shortcut on the superbar,
and now it works. :)

I hope you like it !

preview made with my theme : Soft7

As per the name and the category, this is a start orb, only.

The theme, as written in the description, is Soft7 2.0, but you don't need theme manager to install it.

Read the respective description and you'll have everything you need.
