- Place the rec.theme and rec folder in your x:\Windows\Resources\Themes folder.

- ressources just for win x64/ For the blank StartButton you have to replace Explorer.exe in your Windows directory.

/ Replace the explorerframe.dll in your x:\Windows\System32

The theme is, in my opinion, one of the best themes for 7.
I would have though 2 things in mind:

1. Do you know that in Firefox (bookmarks menu) if there are both folders and favicons in the same drop down menu, the favicons are not aligned under the folder icons but slightly to the right?

2. Can u update the theme with the "minimize, maximize and close" buttons being more "compact" or closer to each other?

TY for the great theme.

same here.. but im in love with "Relax" ..
i have tried 2 other themes already but "Relax" hits the spot ..
It's so minimalistic yet so elegant.

I love the font and font size.
It's so sleek, compact, yet sooo usable.

It's the perfect theme.
Although all of Krissis themes are incredible.
No blemishes, no glitches, just a consistent feel and look throughout the entire theme.
Usually with themes, i always find atleast one or two blemishes.
Not with "Relax" :)

Only minor tweak i would try is make the address bar same color as the border.
But it's perfect the way it is.
I have made a system image backup after doing a clean install with "Relax" :)
