How to:

You must patch your system files before you can use 3rd party windows themes. Use this tool to do it:…
Install the fonts found in the folder "Resources/Fonts"

2. Install the theme?
Copy the content of Theme folder in "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\" (Asuming that you're Windows 7 is installed on partition C)

3. Change the start orb?
Use Windows 7 Start Button Changer to change the start orb. You can find this tool here:…
Launch Windows 7 Start Button Changer and choose the BMP from the "Resources/Start Orb" folder and you're done!

4. Change the Windows Navigation buttons?
Use Windows 7 Navigation Buttons Customizer to change the Windows Navigation Buttons, resources available in the folder "Resources/Navigation Buttons"
Download the tool here:…

5. Smooth Fonts like in OSX or Linux?
Use gdipp, the little app which changes your font rendering engine to make the fonts smooth just like, or almost like, in Linux or MacOS.
Download here:…

6. Say "Thank you!"
If you like the theme don't hesitate to say thanks!

Thanks for downloading!!!

Can you make it OS 10?
dpcdpc11's avatar
what do you mean? do you suggest I make an OS10 theme?
dpcdpc11's avatar
that's pretty much impossible since I'm using a PC with Windows!

I know... not everyone can afford a mac, you know!

can you make it so, it's compatible with windowblinds?
dpcdpc11's avatar
I've never themed for window blinds, but I'm guessing that I would have to recreate the theme specially for WB. But since I don't use it and my time is really limited, this is not an option for me.... Sorry!
YOKOAII's avatar
Thanks anyways :)

I love your simplify themes, but I would to have a search box once you press the start button as I use that all the time...still using it though :) 
dpcdpc11's avatar
I know what you mean, but since now I'm on Win8, I won't be updating my Win 7 themes anymore.
rdj550's avatar
No prob at all, still love your theme and turns out, I dont really use it all that much (the search box) since I have indexing turned off anyways

this doesn't work for me, it reverts back to the default windows 7 theme. I've patched everything too. 
dpcdpc11's avatar
after patching restart your computer or something.... the theme is fine and works for everyone.
