How To
You'll need your system patched with UXThemePatcher


You'll also need 'StartIsBack' (check the 'SIB Settings' screenshots included in the zip, for theme specific settings in StartIsBack)to apply the start menu 
& taskbar style as well as 'OldNewExplorer' for windows explorer to look exactly like it is in the screenshot. 




For RS2-RS4:

Extract the contents of the theme folder & copy them to:
Use the 'Add Personalize Classic' registry file in zip to add the option to your desktop right click menu.
From right click menu go to:
Personalize(classic)>Theme settings
& select to apply the theme.

For RS5:
Extract the contents of the 'Theme' folder & copy them to: 
From Personalization, select & apply the theme.

Aero Glass is recommended with this theme.

Aero Glass for RS5 1809:…

Looks incredible. But I'm having a problem downloading. Nothing here and the DOA Themes website doesn't have this theme. Either I'm blind or I'm blind. lol Can you help me out?

if you're using eclipse then the download button is right below the screenshots, if you're using the old site then its on the right hand side pf the page near the top
Hey dude, 
Love your work!
Fantastic themes!
I'm having a little trouble getting the theme to apply to Explorer Navigational buttons.
The Nav Buttons just stay normal Windows back and forward buttons.
Any pointers?
Keep up the great work!

did you set up Old New Explorer properly? there is a screenshot of the settings for ONE in the Installation Guide &  Readme folder.
Thanks for the quick reply.
I have ONE set up exactly like the pic in the Install Guide.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled.
Are there extra configs that need to be done with the .dll files?

no .. there is nothing else... strange that problem you seem to have!!! could you try another theme & see if it yields different results?? also, what's your DPI settings?
Surface Pro 3 = DPI 195.
I see the nav buttons change with other themes. 
Its just strange they are not with this one.
devillnside's avatar
it's the dpi setting.. if you set it @ 100% ( to test & see), i believe you'll find the nav buttons gets changed
Right on!!!
That did it!
Things are a little small now, but i can deal with that.
Thanks again!!!
