: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:

a wonderful theme! Thanks a lot for this! Hug

But i have two little problems.
1. I can not change the start button.
2. the shut-down-fontsize is in the german version to long. it calls "Herunterf..." instead of "Herunterfahren". How can i change the fontsize?

I made a screenshot:…

It's not possible to change either of those without completely recompiling the theme unfortunately. There is paid software that will assist you with this, but it's certainly not for the faint of heart.

Great theme, this the first one I find suitable for everyday use since "Win7 Shine".

My taskbar items have small icons and labels. The solid bright green/blue background of grouped items looked odd for me, so I replaced those with the default transparent ones. Not sure if you intended the backgrounds to be solid there.
I also found the cyan scrollbars and the lack of the "restore window" button odd. But that's just me. Just about everything else is to my liking.

So yeah, thank you for this elegant and viable VS :)
