Vista Reflections
~counteralchemist


I. Overview

I am very happy to release my very first visual style for Windows Vista! This visual style features glasslike elements in Windows Aero and metallic elements in Windows Vista Basic.

It also features a new shell style and 2 Sidebar Styler skins. A variation of Vista Reflections labeled “Remove Text Glow on Max” is also included in the pack. I hope you enjoy using this visual style as much as I enjoyed making it! :)

Please :+fav: Vista Reflections if you like it! :D

II. Requirements

If you have not patched your system files or installed Windows Sidebar Styler, you can refer to a Microsoft Word Document included in the Vista Reflections package named "Information". ;)

III. Legal Information

Windows Vista resources in the visual style are copyright of Microsoft Corporation. They are only included in the pack for customization purposes.

The shell style in the pack was made using a shell style template created by Lost Soul.

Other resources and pictures in the pack are copyright of counteralchemist. Please do not redistribute or edit them without my permission.

Stay tuned for future projects and updates in my deviantART page! I would really appreciate your comments, suggestions, and bug reports! :)

Thanks to Lost Soul for finding a way on how to customize the shell style in Windows Vista!

Thanks to UKIntel for making a really great guide on how to make visual styles for Windows Vista!

Thanks to my friends in deviantART for giving me their support! :)

I'm pretty sure you can patch the visual style to enable glass on Vista Home Basic. I haven't actually tried it though.
