Fresh off the presses.  As a favour for my fellow themer yorgash, I introduce the port you've been begging for.
A Steam themed visual style for Windows 8/8.1.
The visual style incorporates the appearance of Steam with a functioning Windows visual style.

:bulletgreen: Or use OldNewExplorer


How to install:

What you have to do:

- Download and install UxStyle ( OR Universal Theme Patcher.
- Copy the contents of Themes folder to \Windows\resources\themes folder.
- Apply it in personalization or double clicking .theme file you like.

Or follow this guide if you're stuck:

Thank you very much for this but the only problem I have is the loss of the title for some windows. I tried your reg fix but it didn't help. It's very crucial for me to have the titles. For these windows, the title bar shows something but it's not in the right color, it's just a gray background but no text :( Please help me restore the titles. Thanks.

Would be great to see this updated so that it matches the new Steam design.

Regarding my issue with the start menu I notice it does show up correctly skinned after first installing the theme. But if I restart Windows or explorer then goes back to the default 7 style start menu.

What StartMenu Replacement Software do you use?

Looking at this, it does makes me feel that there should be a proper OS in this style...

Dude, I 'd think by now you'd have fixed the TITLE BAR BUG. How have you not done that yet? It's not a finished product until you've fixed errors that have been around since you first released the WIP.

Yeah, this bug is really annoying!

EDIT: I think there might be a step we've missed. Will get back to you when I've figured it out :)

* Tried this with UXstyle and  Universal The Patcher Both made Windows 8.1 update itself?

After unzipping into themes folders> none of the themes show up in Personalize Menu.

*Do I need to take ownership of the Themes folder BEFORE I attempt to install items there?
