Description:
NOOTO - Nothing out of the ordinary
Just what the title says. It's CleanGlass with no glass + new startmenu, captionbuttons, scrollbutton, taskbar. The rest is the same. :p

Original: [link]
Vista Port: [link]

/* Directions */
(Before you go asking about how to apply themes and how to patch system files and whatnot, download and run the file at [link] then restart your computer.)

Copy everything in the 'Theme' directory to %WinDir%\Resources\Themes\
Take ownership of your explorer.exe in the Windows folder (%WinDir%), rename it to explorer.exe.backup, copy the explorer.exe in the folder that corresponds to your operating system (ex: if your OS is 64bit, then take the explorer.exe from Resources\x64\) to %WinDir%. Restart your computer or restart explorer.exe from the task manager. Take ownership of your explorerframe.dll in the System 32 folder (%WinDir%\System 32), rename it to explorerframe.dll.backup, copy the explorerframe.dll in the folder that corresponds to your operating system (ex: if your OS is 64bit, then take the explorerframe.dll from Resources\x64\) to %WinDir%\System 32. Restart your computer or restart explorer.exe from the task manager and select NOOTO or NOOTO Basic from the Windows theme selector.

In order to make the aero version's frames look correct, it is required to have downloaded and ran PacMani's HideBlur Tool for Windows 7 (found here: [link] or [link]).

Been using NOOTO on Vista and Win7 for a very long time. Doesn't conflict with anything and doesn't get hard on the eyes.

Thank you very much for including a Basic-compliant theme for those of us who prefer non-aero.

Actually, I have a question. Will you do a small update to recolour this frame to match the rest?

It's the best Basic theme out there and I've been using it forever, but seeing that feels wrong every time. It shouldn't be any harder than a simple recolour, right?

Is there any way to change the default font?

Nevermind, I've figured it out.
This is a great theme, cheers!

Also, is the taskbar's notifications usually this small? It only seems to display two icons and I'd like it to display more icons.

taskbar's too thick?

Why is that a question? And no, it isn't.

WTF!!!??? it looks like a GR8! theme... But how on Earth do you install it, that explanation is absolutely impossible for a guy like me to understand... PLS anyone help!!

Great skin! One question though: Are those white shortcuts (for chrome and ps) on the taskbar in some kind of icon pack? Cause I've seen them around, just can't seem to find a download of them anywhere.. Thanks for the port anyway!

I found a link to a "Token" icon set, which looks nice too. So I'll use that, if you can still answer though that'd be great!
