====================================


THIS WORK its not a stand alone work.

It has 4 visual styles and 2 system files (UIRibbon.dll) for each version (32 bit and 64 bit)

Names of the visual styles/themes:

Metal is a brushed theme with fat vertical separators, so suitable for touch monitor tablets/computers.
Pt (= Platinum) is a lighter brushed looking theme with fat vertical separators, so suitable for touch monitor tablets/computers.
02 is a white/liht gray version with thin vertical separators in mountain lion style.
H20 (= Aqua,Water) is a lighter gray version with thin vertical separators and a light blue main surface so for be more relaxing after many hours work to pc.

It has been made for using together with my ''imac theme for Windows 8 RTM'' system files theme, but replace the shell32.dll of your system and use that from 'Aqua World os x style Theme for Windows 8 rtm' , if you wish to have the preview pane to top, and details pane to the right.

so install exploreframe.dll and imageres from ''imac theme for Windows 8 RTM'' 1. 32bit [link] - 2. 64 bit [link]

and install the shell32.dll from the 'Aqua World os x style Theme for Windows 8 rtm' [link]
