Instructions |

First of all we need to patch Windows 8 to use themes, here's the tool I used
You can use whatever 'works' for you. :)

Now once your PC is capable, place the theme files into Windows/Resources/Themes

Then go to your desktop and apply it as you would any other theme. It will be located under "Installed Themes".

If you wish to get rid of the ribbon use the provided tool. That should be it, any questions just ask.

Any chance you could edit the Quick Access Toolbar so it follows the color of the bar at the top? I use the ribbon and it shows up as white and I cant seem to find a way to get rid of that toolbar without getting rid of the whole ribbon.

I think this is not compatible with Windows 8.1
the color stuck with blue even i change it to automatic (just title bar changes the color)

I'm using 8.1 and it works just fine for me.

Hi, no such auto-coloring option in Win 7?

I works but I honestly don't see that much of a difference with most of those Windows 8 themes, compared to the way Windows XP themes worked. The theme framework included in Vista/7/8 seems less flexible.

There's a theme named "Dominion" (by KoL) on which turned out to be a good choice for my XP a while ago. I'd be delighted if it was possible to port that theme to Windows 8, or probably create a very similar one from scratch.
