Aero Xtreme 7 for Launchy by IanITAInc Aero Xtreme 7 for Launchy by IanITAInc
Xtremely Transparent, Xtremely Compact, Xtremely Handy
This is Aero Xtreme 1.5 for Launchy!

About the size of a gadget, Aero Xtreme just might be one of the most compact skin ever made for Launchy!

Works with Windows 7, Vista, Windows XP and Windows 2000!

About Aero Xtreme...
After trying Launchy about a week ago and really liking it, I decided to do a skin that would allow Launchy to sit nicely amongst other gadgets instead of sticking out somewhere and looking like it didn't belong. Aero Xtreme had to be compact, handy and most of all, it had to blend into any decor and look good...

Aero Xtreme for Launchy is based on the Aero Xtreme 7 VS [link] thumbnail borders which have more transparency than the default Windows 7 thumbnails.

Changelog:

About Launchy...
Launchy is a free windows and linux utility designed to help you forget about your start menu, the icons on your desktop, and even your file manager.

Launchy indexes the programs in your start menu and can launch your documents, project files, folders, and bookmarks with just a few keystrokes!
Josh Karlin [link]

Requirements:
:bulletred: Launchy [link]
:bulletred: Compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP and, with a bit of tweaking, Windows 2000.
:bulletred: Segoe UI Font

Instructions:
1. Install the included font if you don't have Segoe UI on your system
2. Install Launchy and run Launchy after the installation.
3. Copy the 3 Aero Xtreme folders to 'C:\Program Files\Launchy\skins'.
4. Right click the current skin and select 'Options' from the context menu.
5. Select the 'Skins' tab.
6. Select one of the Aero Xtreme skins and click on the 'OK' button to apply the skin.

Note: For best results, set the opaqueness level to about 80% to 90% in the Launchy 'General' options.

Launchy does it all!
Launch an applications, a web page, a google search or use Launchy as a calculator to do simple to fairly complexe operations. Launchy can also do conversions (i.e., from imperial to metric). It's a real time saver!

Enjoy and please comment and :+fav: if you like it!

The screenshot is just to show the different Lauchy skins. So it's not an actual desktop. ;)

Thanks! That would be a cool desktop (very small) but it was only to show off the Launchy Skins!

Hey, Man!
BEAUTIFUL skin - best Launchy skin I've seen, in fact.
I've got a problem on my machine, though: the result text is black (unlike the screenshots), and thus, very hard to read.

How would I fix that?

No problem :D
Ahh I get it now. I did not know the original purpose before.
I don;t use my sidebar as much, thats why I asked for the wider one :P

Okay! I will release the wider version soon along with the sky color... and, everybody, don't forget that this also works on Vista and Windows 7!

GREAT skin!
I've been looking for an aero-like skin for a while now, and I even tried making one, but I suck at those things :P

Good job!

Suggestion: I was thinking that the only thing that can make this set better was if there was a wide, slightly slimmer version of the Aero Compact skin.
Thanks again

Thanks for your great comment!

The idea was to have these the width of a gadget but I can always add a wider version... I might also submit a Sky blue set.

Thanks for your recommendation!

Wow! Thanks so much for testing this on Windows 7! Proves that Windows 7 can run just about anything!

Awesome stuff! I have updated the requirements to include Windows 7. If someone can get this working on Vista, just let me know...

Glad that you also like it on XP!

Sorry, it's a picture and not a wallpaper (and it's fairly small). I've had this picture for several years and I have no idea who the author is. If someone knows, simply let me know and I will add the link to it. In the mean time, I regrettably cannot distribute it with the skin. I decided to use this picture because it looks liked the fish was launched from the glass to the fish bowl. Kind of appropriate for a Launchy skin!

Thanks Peter! All my pleasure! This is definitely something that's going to stay on my desktop for as long as I have an XP system! Launchy is just awesome! Does anybody know if this works with Windows 7? (in compatibility mode maybe?)
