Finally got set back up, after my "windows 8 experience" caused me to have to re-format. What are the people at M$ thinking, with the pre-schooler graphics (big, ugly, multi-colored tiles) of Windows 8!? I like my desk to look ADULT and smart--- not like some kind of TOY from Sesame Street, designed by Ernie & Bert, with the stupid looking cartoon fish!
Still using and loving Placebo 'Borderless Black Market2' vs, stll using my favorite wood-pattern wall (~GuillenDesign's 'Wallpaper Wood 2'), Token icons, etc....I never tire of this style!
*System Properties Image (Token-style orb, unmodified): [link] *Tool to replace the default image: [link] (credits to Kishan-bagaria and Door2Windows)
*Hard Drive Icons: [link] *Good YT video on how to manually edit your drive icons: [link]
*System Icons, RD icons (most anyway. Some, I made): [link][link]
*'Full Glass' application: [link] (Renders your explorer windows semi-transparent, like glass. Works best on dark visual-styles with dark explorer backgrounds. Not good with white or light colors.)
*RainMeter skins: (unmodified versions) 1-Time: [link] 2-Month, Day, Date: (not really sure where I got these...the name of the skins is "Custom". Couldn't find it here at DA. Must've dl'd them somewhere else) 3-Google: [link] 4-Weather: [link] 5-Recycle Bin: [link] 6-Volume pop-up: 'Volume HUD' by ~jbainbrid [link]
*A good site with html color-codes (for editing RM skin-colors, etc) is here: [link] *Good fonts site (again, useful for editing, etc.): [link]
RocketDock skin: (any skin will do....transparency 100%. The "dock" is something I made into the wallpaper with PS styles/shapes, along with the little decoration around the Xion-player. Only the icons are visible, and I have like 16 blank separators between the sets in order to space them out)
Did you ever think of doing thisfor Windows 8 ? It would work wonderful & as many people are now using it (w8), people would love to have such a nice theme on 8 & like me, many don't do much with metro at all. This theme is just subliminally good. Kudos to your creativity amigo
Yeah, thanks, I found it myself after posting the question too fast, sorry. One more question, how did you change the UAC shield icons for the gear one in the control panel home pane? Changed imageres.dll or something easier? Ah, and one more: how do you manage to get different drive icons in the computer explorer screen than in the navigation pane? Thanks a bunch. Btw, very nice thing you've got going with your vs.
Tnx. I know how to change the drive icons, but somehow you managed to get different icons in the explorer window for computer than in the navigation pane. When I change using the hacks you linked it changes the icons in both places. How did you do it?
