OK... so here is an update to my previous theme Longhorn Reload, as with the 1st version thanks to miretank [link] for sharing his resources. I've renamed it Longhorn Duo to keep it distinct from the numerous previous versions, AND because ive included a "matching" FireFox theme.

Two versions of the Visual style are included, one with mods in the start menu to keep the white searchpane from showing up, but this causes the color of the explorer searchpanes to be black when active and not very usable, so a normal one will be included as the defualt.

The toolbar background is performed via stylish script, a link is included to install the script just read the directions if you dont understand something.


Fixes in start menu:
All Programs text color changed to white
No more grayish color when searching in start menu
No more white search pane in style B(with downfalls...)

Start icons updated and changed to proper side in Jade menu
New Jade menu shutdown and logoff buttons

ok this is a really stupid question....but whats longhorn....y the hype about it???
paradox31102's avatar
really? it was what everyone was hoping vista would look like.

Honestly, i dont understand why this deviation is still popular. This was made back when it was a big deal to have white text in a vista start menu! There have been many better longhorn visual styles and firefox themes made.

long horn is way cooler than vista( atleast by the looks of it)
and shouldnt you be happy your deviation is still popular after such a long time??
paradox31102's avatar
Yeah, I dont know why the final vista product was so different.

It doesn't really matter to me one way or the other, as long as people are satisfied with what they have i guess.

ok... this visual style... is it a windows blinds... or real style... and if real style... than HOW DID YOU CHANGE THE power/logout/lock BUTTONS?
paradox31102's avatar
Its a regular style, but notice that thats a themed firefox window in the screenshot.

The Buttons are changed in the Explorer.exe BUT ITS VERY OLD.... like pre SP1 probably so i dont advise replacing the two since it likely wont work. You could extract the resources out though.
