Windows Aero Beta for WB

Windows Aero for XP WindowBlinds 6.0 only!

DOWNLOAD HERE: [link]

Perfect Styler toolbar: [link] and apply it.

Styler program: [link]

Original Idea and theme by JuanPerez, all credits to him. This is a minor edit of his style, added perfect aero glass frame fixed clear taskbar to normal taskbar.

Not to use as default theme! Because all windows will be with the fake navigation bar, I recommend a per-application setting in WindowBlinds: open wbconfig, then go to settings > Change the look of app, then add a per application setting, browse to a exe you want to be skinned with this theme (for example explorer: C:\Windows\explorer.exe), then select to use a specified skin, and set it to use Windows Aero. Save changes and restart explorer. From now on only explorer apps will be skinned, other applications like word, paint will be normal (Aero Ultimate as default recommended). You can do the same with jake's apps: Games Explorer [link] and control panel which will be released soon.

Bugs:
When maximized it will go buggy
All explorer elements will be skinned - including taskbar settings, copy\move\delete dialogs etc.
No navigation*

For solving navigation problems in explorer download Windows Aero Styler [link] and apply it.

Enjoy!

Comments are welcome!

fediaFedia's avatar
Yeah this bug occurs for some users in my released skins. I bet it's stardock's fault.

You need to add only explorer to the per application skins, and then reboot.
