spot for 7

By krissirk
715 Favourites
Spot for Win7 aero. 2 style : aero and solid theme.

------ update 08/03/10 ---------

change window background from gray to white.


for the start button you can find here at DA a lot of great start button or leave the theme with my default blank one.


- You need a patched system for using theme : [link] or : [link]

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

- For the StartButton you have to replace Explorer.exe in your Windows directory, for help : [link]

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


** Wall's :

- at top : [link] (Trae by GuituX)
- at bottom: [link] (NEVA by Digitalshiva)

** icons : [link] (token by brsev)


If you don't like the color of the taskbar buttons follow this mini tutorial:

with [link] (restuner) :
open spot.msstyle , go to image folder and replace png: 1150 , 1151, 1152, 1153.
edit these png's with your photo editor.
don't forget to save.
reboot spot theme.

with [link] (vsb):
open spot.msstyle, go to:
windows 7 > taskbar & tray notify > basic > taskbar > taskitembuttom ( replace png 1150)
windows 7 > taskbar & tray notify > basic > taskbar >uncombinedtaskitemleft ( replace png 1151)
windows 7 > taskbar & tray notify > basic > taskbar >uncombinedtaskitemcenter ( replace png 1152)
windows 7 > taskbar & tray notify > basic > taskbar >uncombinedtaskitemright ( replace png 1153)
save after that.

First of all I'd like to thank you for sharing this work of yours with us! Second, I'd like to ask for some help modifing it just a little bit (for personal use only). When I right click on the desktop or in a folder, the menu that rolls down looks just like yours above (bottom right). But when I right click somewhere in firefox (to save a picture, use a wallpaper, or to modify the toolbar) the text is black on dark grey making it very hard to read. Highlighting it with the mouse cursor of course makes the text white, but still it feels really uncomfortable to just check black text on the almost black surface. How can I change the text color here to make it white / light grey you used on other menus?

How do you get the close,maximize,minimize buttons to change

I don't know how you used the files, but for me it looks like on the pictures above. Did nothing else but downloaded this zip and placed everything in Windows\Resources\Themes folder. Wasn't sure if I should unzip it first or just leave it there as it is, so I placed there all the 3 zip files and also unzipped the one with the "spot" folder in it. The new theme then appeared in UI custumization (where you can set screensavers, walls etc.)

Hope I could help.

you sir/ma'am are a fucking genius. At first I was extremely confused on how to change the theme but now it is easy. The only thing that I don't like is the scroll bar for what I believe is only on web browsers (IE, firefox, chrome, ETC)

Pensez-vous faire une version plus claire ?
krissirk's avatar

Il en faudrait bien une je pense ;)

the Explorer.exe. and explorerframe.dll don't work in Windows 7 Pro 64bit. The theme itself however does, just gotta change Windows start menu n stuff with Startorbs or something similar. Really nice work :)

Change the default Firefox Theme.. Use for exemple : [link]

When I said, dark, I meant that the text is still black color, so the gray and black are hard to see.
