*visual style
*Shellstyle & alternatives shell

Installation:
- You have to copy the zipped visual style into the windows system folder "c:\windows\ressources\themes".
- You have to copy the fonts into fonts folder.
- The default font for this theme is corbel , It requires cleartype to be activate to be displayed correctly. To activate cleartype, go to display properties, appearance, then click on effects. Choose cleartype under "Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts"

I have a stupid question: how to remove the text of the title bar? I used TbarIconBlanker for the captionbar icons but I would also remove the text.
thanks.

je vois sur ton profil que t'es français, donc je peux te répondre en français :nod:
alors concernant le texte des captions bar, il faut remplacer la police (font) de la caption bar par une police vide (blank font) mais pour cela il faut utiliser un software comme "restuner" pour pouvoir faire les modifications.
