Dark Pearl VS 1.1 by MorpheusNS Dark Pearl VS 1.1 by MorpheusNS
Dark Pearl VS for Windows 7

Version 1.1

Changes from 1.0:

- Fixed notification area backgrounds
- Fixed taskbar jumplist background


Tested on Windows 7 x86 only, but works on x64 as well (withous the content of "System files" folder). System files for x86 pre-SP1!

In order to use custom themes you have to patch your system files.
To do that, download and install Universal Theme Patcher from this link:


Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.


To install the visual style:

Place the content of the "Theme" folder in C:WindowsResourcesThemes

Double-click on Dark Pearl VS.theme to apply the style.


I've included several system files, which you can, but you don't need to change (x86 pre-SP1 only!):

explorer.exe - for the start button
explorerframe.dll - for the Back-Forward buttons in Windows Explorer


Special thanks to ~brsev for his Token icons, ~da-nadda for wonderful wallpaper and ~AP-GRAPHIK for inspiration.


The bar at the bottom is a program called Rainmeter, with skins: Enigma, Circles, Toxxweather

Hello MorpheusNS, I love this skin. Thank you very much.
You could help me locate the taskbars that you use that appear.

Thanks again.

Love the theme, but some of Firefox icons and the menu bar cannot be seen due to the dark colours. Is there a work-around?
Note: I am running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 X64. Firefox is "Quantum" ver 57.0.4. I currently use Firefox in native theme.

Hi love this theme.  I'd like to edit your visual style for personal use.  Do you think you could help me find the images for the scrollbar? There seem to be a lot of different graphics for the scrollbar, I don't know which elements are which.

At all of the download links for Universal Theme Patcher are dead. Does anybody know where I can find the software? I really want to use Morpheus' Dark Pearl theme.

I really love this theme but there are still some things not yet fixed. I could fix the Quick Info which had a black font on a dark gray (or black?) background but there are windows with black bars and black font on it. Also if you wanna change the the view (don't know how this option is called in English) of the symbol structure in a folder and you hover the cursor over an option (for example "details") the font blackens (I'm talking about the quick setting for this in the top right corner of the Windows Explorer). In the start menu when new programms have been added, the entry's background is yellow and the font is a bright gray which makes it very hard to read. I hope you can fix this. :)

I am sorry, but my Windows days are over, so I can't continue developing this theme. I've been using either Linux or Mac OS X for the past three years...
Vexz1349 Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2015
Hm alright. That's sad to hear. I'd also rather use Linux but I'm bound to Windows since some things are not working for me correctly with Linux.

MorpheusNS Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
You can use it safely with any Windows 7 pre-SP1 (I guess SP1 too), except for the content of "System files" folder. You can use them ONLY with Windows 7 x86 pre-SP1. I am a full time Linux user now (have been since February), so I can't help with making videos, sorry. Thank you for your support, I am glad you like my work! :)

OutlawClark Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2013
is it compatible on windows 8 (x64) ?
MorpheusNS Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
I don't think so... I think it can be ported to Windows 8, but I do not use Windows any more and don't have new Style builder.

Does it work on x32 Win 7 ?
MorpheusNS Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Yes, it does. But if you have SP1 installed, don't use system files, only theme.

is There a way to get all the suite in a single package? or maybe can you make a list of plugins used in this theme.

Thanks for your help.

I'am new to themes but i managed to installed the theme, only the icons did not change. I still got the default win7 icons. Are the icons included, or how can i get these (like in pict.). In windows i checked the option allow themes to change desktop icons, still no difference, please help?
MorpheusNS Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
No, you have to change icons one by one manually, they're not included. There is an explanation on how to do this in one of the first posts.

ricta938 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2013
where do you put the system files to make the boarder and stuff? noob here
MorpheusNS Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Content of "Theme" folder in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes.

Don't use the content of "System files" folder if you have Windows 7 SP1 or any Windows 7 x64!
