Simplify 8 Theme Pack for Windows 8.1 by dpcdpc11 Simplify 8 Theme Pack for Windows 8.1 by dpcdpc11

Get my latest Simplify 10 themes: gumroad.com/dpcdpc11 for Windows 10!


description

an elegant and minimalistic Pack of Visual Styles for Windows 8.1 that doesn't get in the way of your productivity.
+BONUS: Matching Firefox Style for the dark themes available here.

EXTRA STUFF!!! make sure you checkout the 2 matching PotPlayer skinsSimplify Light for PotPlayer and Simplify Dark for PotPlayer.

IMPORTAT!!!! The themes don't change the icons! I never said they do! If you want to change the system icons you can use iPacks. In the preview I've used this iPack: numix iPack. If you want to change the taskbar icons then please google something like "how to change the taskbar icons in windows".

how to

create a Restore Point using System Restore (safety first!)
patch Windows so you can use 3rd party themes using this tool: uxstyle.com
install the theme by copying the content of the Themes/Light Themes or Themes/Dark Themes folder in "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\"
apply the theme from the Personalize panel
apply the registry settings by applying the corresponding .reg file in the Window Metrics folder
remove the hover glow of the taskbar buttons: System>Advanced Settings>Performance Settings>uncheck Animations in the taskbar
restart Windows and...
enjoy using your new themes!
• OPTIONAL for Dark Point and Light Lines themes: use OldNewExplorer and check Use command bar instead of Ribbon option and all the sub-options except for the Hide caption text in File Explorer windows
OPTIONAL! narrow vertical taskbar: use 7+ Taskbar Tweaker. Right click on the tray icon>advanced settings and set the no_width_limit = 1
OPTIONAL! change the system icons: install the numix iPack

what you get

10 awesome Windows themes + extra variations: folders Themes...
matching windows cursor schemes: folder Resources\Cursors
two beautiful wallpapers: folder Resources\Wallpapers
matching Firefox Style for Simplify 8.1 Dark: available here
unlimited support!

It's an old theme that hasn't been updated for years (2016.01.26). Back then hidpi monitors weren't a thing.
I would suggest to update to Windows 10 and try my win10 themes which most of them work great at 200% scaling.

OK.. then I will send you my Windows 8.1 themes because you asked for this theme: Simplify 10 Orange Blue - Windows 10 Themes which is a Windows 10 theme and you can't use it on Windows 8.1.
