imac theme for Windows 8 RTM 32bit


imac theme for Windows 8 RTM 32bit made by Pavlos Pitselas.

imac is a osx style theme under my personal view for Windows 8 RTM 32bit.

see some preview screenshots of the theme [link]

the theme is made to work when to default size, so go to Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display and be sure that you have select (default) Smaller 100% .

There are on this download, system files that can be used only on 32 versions of windows 8 RTM (32 bit), and including instructions text.

Please download 7zip [link] for unzip the files and follow carefully the instructions included.
as also please, about taking ownership in files of windows 8 have a look to this [link] to this [link]
i recomend after unzip the file to take ownership to the folder [selecting during the procedure this to be applied to all subfolders of it]

before doing anything make a restore point .

as also after you copy paste the system files dll, following the instructions, to C:\Windows\System32 take again the ownership of them.


I do not allow any modifications of my work.



For dissapearing the status bar at the bottom of explorer's window go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items select 'FOLDER OPTIONS', select 'view' then deselect the 'Show Status bar'

Setting small title font on titlebar :
go to Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display and set to the section 'Change only the text size' to '9' and select/check the 'bold' option.

sorry bad english
Very nice theme. The best I've ever seen. I installed it on all my PCs. Thank you.
But the only thing I noticed is that the little triangles to move the slider of the
scrollbar up and down, or from left to right, HAVE DISAPPEARED!!

Is there a possibility to restore them??

restore :

rename the current system file [for example the shell32.dll to shell32.mac and

replace the saved system files for example shell32.old to shell32.dll  and do the same to the other system files you had changed.

(also i evere recomend do a restore point before the changing of system files)

the triangles does not exist > as on mac osx have disappeared  > though if you set your mouse to the position that they were at the edges, you can move the slider  too.
