:pat: If you like my theme, please donate!

Windows 8 version coming soon.

Update April 28th:
Windows 8 sound scheme
Bug fixes

Theme includes:
  • Custom wallpaper
  • Custom start button
  • Custom explorer frames
  • Custom logon background
  • Custom metro cursors
  • Custom Windows 8 sound scheme (new!)
  • Fully styled explorer shell ui
  • All necessary customization tools

Basic theme installation:
  1. If you haven't already, patch your system with included 'UniversalThemePatcher'. (X86 for 32 bit systems, X64 for 64 bit systems)
  2. Restart your computer (or logoff)
  3. Copy 'premiere' folder to C:/WINDOWS/RESOURCES/THEMES
  4. Double click the 'premiere' theme file to install the theme

Optional but seriously recommended:
  1. Open up 'Extras' -> 'Explorer Frames' and double click 'InstallTakeOwnership' (you can run 'RemoveTakeOwership' afterwards if you want once we're done)
  2. In the 'Explorer Frames' folder, open the appropriate 'xxBIT' folder for your computer and copy the folder(s) to C:/WINDOWS
    ^ you will need to right click and take ownership of the applicable files in C:/WINDOWS and rename them '_old' first if you get any permission errors
  3. Open up 'Extras' -> 'Start button' and run 'Windows 7 Start Button Changer v 2.6' as administrator and click the start orb to change the image 'startbutton.bmp'
  4. Open up 'Extras' -> 'Logon' and run 'TweaksLogon' to change the logon background image to 'PUREMINIMAL.jpg'
  5. Restart your computer
  6. Enjoy!
  7. If you do enjoy, please donate. It costs me $$ every month in hosting costs providing you guys with this theme. Anything helps.

Please comment and :+fav:

Feel free to ask any questions if you've got 'em.

Enjoy! :peace:

Just Amazing!
orfeas666 Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2017
Such a great theme! The only flaw I found is that the search programs bar is missing from start menu....but seriously this theme is the best I found!
Keep the good work!

Can you please fix the link? Redirects to the yonder tv website...
mistraval Featured By Owner May 25, 2016  Professional Interface Designer
Okay it should be fixed for good. It was using an old PHP script to track downloads, but I've gotten rid of that altogether and it's now a direct link.
SnazzleLabs Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2016
What if I patched the system using UxStyle?
leemart44 Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2016  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter

The Download link is broken!  Your site redirects me to Yonder TV!
mistraval Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2016  Professional Interface Designer
Should be fixed now. There was a problem with the PHP script serving up the download.
Hyped1337 Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2016
Dude it's still broken .... Making it hard to donate when I can't even access it for months on end

Without a doubt, the best Visual Styles i come across, and just when i was beginning to think there is nothing promising in Win7, i come across this beauty, thank you sir for sharing this
mistraval Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2016  Professional Interface Designer
No problem, glad you enjoy it :)
Ovinaso Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2016
Yeah i've used it a few times already, can get my self to change to anything else at the moment.
Brilliant work, and hope to see more VS win7 themes from you in the future

Windows 10 version?
mistraval Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2015  Professional Interface Designer
Probably not. Windows 10 looks pretty nice already.
innovation25 Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2015
Ya but that doesn't mean it shouldn't port it over right? 
YpsilonEule Featured By Owner Edited Aug 19, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
hmm doesn't seem to work for me. I patched and restarted the system, copied the folder to the right position. But when double clicking the theme it opens the menu where I can adjust window colors and other things

edit: solved :) looks really great
manomow Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2015
Amazing theme, this is the one thing that's stopping me from upgrading to Windows 10.
xen00x000 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2015
I tried Win10 once... just once.
TH4N1X Featured By Owner Edited Jul 23, 2015
This theme is really great - lightweight and dark at the same time. :) However, there are six things I think you should change:
1. Active app higlight in taskbar - it should be more subtle and definitely not yellow.
2. Mouse hover effect over minimize/maximize/close buttons is a bit too subtle.
3. Missing search bar in the Start menu.
4. Contrast between checked and uncheck item in the Explorer. It's hard to see if an item is unchecked if it's between checked items.
5. When using a dark wallpaper it's hard to see whether the is checked.
6. Colors (blue and green) when hovering over open folders in taskbar. It should be more subtle.
The first thing is really conspicuous and the fifth thing is really annoying. If you could change at least that, it would be great. :)
DanLegere Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2015
Agree. It's to hard to see the selection highlights on selected files, and the task bar is not compatible with dark wallpapers.
milicko97 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2015
mistraval  id love to pay for your theme but i just cant for several reasons 
1.i dont have money since im a teenager 
2.dont have credit card so even if i had money i wouldnt be able to donate it  
So im asking you nicely would u mind sending the theme to my inbox? :c
mistraval Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2015  Professional Interface Designer
It's not a paid theme, donation is optional. Just click the 'Download Theme' laptop image.
xnifex Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2015
Is there anyway to change the color of the blinking item on the Taskbar that alerts you to things? It is way too dark & hard to see.
MrMelodyCold Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2015
i would like a borderless version and without the options on top of the explorer window and maybe replace the black background in the start menu for solid white but this is one of the best themes that i found so far
podalava Featured By Owner Edited May 30, 2015  Professional Digital Artist

innovation25 Featured By Owner May 15, 2015

Grigorith Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2015

Grigorith Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2015
Can some one give me slightly more details for the Explorer Frames? I can't seem to get it to work.

Cant download it from the it says it "Host Error."
shadzovgra Featured By Owner May 3, 2015
Ever thought of simply unpacking the theme from the executable container? I'm sorry, but I really like the look of the theme, but absolutely refuse to pay for ANYTHING online. Yeah, I know....HUGE trust issues, but presenting the theme unpacked and ready for a manual installation would not make life that much harder for those that would like to try your theme on there systems. As it is and I'm not trying to be a big nasty here, all I see is a grab for some bucks that aren't really needed if you simply re-thought about how you released the theme to the public, e.g. Not Packed into a executable container. Deviant can't be held to blame here and if you really want the theme to earn itself a name, then a re-think about your method of redistribution is needed. Apologies in advance if my comments have upset you.
