you can expect sheer and exquisite quality when you download and use any of ~minhtrimatrix' work. Frost for 7 is just one example of the pure digital brilliancy in this deviant's work, which you can apply to your desktop for a phantastic new workflow experience.

where is the Personalize Menu ?
Jim-HiTek Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2013
OK, I know I'm getting old and all, but it was very difficult to find a 'Download' button for this skin! The only obvious one I find is for a tool bar for Firefox. Which I will avoid like the plague. Finally found the small download zip file button over on the right. It's tiny, and didn't expect it to be so small, or over on the right where I usually find ads.

Just a minor constructive criticism.

OK, off to try this skin...

I love this theme and is currently using it. But there's one minor problem, the font colour of my taskbar clock is in white colour, not black as in the preview photos. How can I change that?
matigg Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
I need help with something:
When I try to replace explorer and ExplorerFrame, windows doesn't let me change it, it says that I need permision and I already took ownership of it. thank you
Markkoenig Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2013
When you've taken ownership, you need to allow yourself the complete access permission (right click>properties>security>modify).

Frost Aero is excellent theme.
I want bigger fonts and setting with Windows Color and Appearance.
Font size is not changed in several places
How can I adjust the size of letters.
I would like to keep this theme but I need bigger fonts.
minhtrimatrix Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012
100% DPI is recommended
erngab Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012
I use 100% (default)

In address bar font is small
When click on it - select address - font is ok size (that what I want)

I tried something with Windows Style Builder
I was able to increase the font size in menus, but the height of the menu has remained small.
I do not know where to set.
kleash Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012
The instruction was verrrrrrrry confusing. The "system files" folder had explorer.exe in it, and I almost replaced the one in c:\windows\system32 instead of just c:\windows.

Try Start windows In Comand Prompt mode and type sfc /scannow, the restart windows and do this again and this will correct the error.

strich9ine Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012   Photographer
I tried on 7 Ultimate Sp 1. changes doesn´t take affect, any help?
minhtrimatrix Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012
Run the Universal Theme Patcher again
strich9ine Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2012   Photographer
I did!
The only thing happens is that the aero Effect disappears and you get the standard light blue 7 Theme.
I allready disabled UAC.
Installed, restored and reinstalled it again, but unforunatly no effect.
I can remember it worked like a charme befor SP.1

ilumizi Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2012
Man, this theme will drive me crazy! I can't make it work! After a long time to be able to replace the system files, now how to activate it? It's not appear in the windows menu customization. :pissedoff:

AngelKai20 Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2012
Hello I really really like your theme. But I have a question: Can I change the font size or type from the start panel??
[link] I think they are very small. =) Can you change them to a bigger one, lik you did in Elune theme.

Thanks, I really like your work, but that was my suggestion.
AngelKai20 Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2012
that´s why Im talking about ---> [link]

everything else in my opinion is PERFECT! is fashion, minimalistic, clear, great design, etc.
Eclater Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I love this theme and I always come back to it. However, I have to reinstall whenever I defrag, which is quite annoying. Other than that, this theme is great and functional and I thank you for sharing it with us.
