TRAVELOGUE TRIBUTE Win8, 8.1 by neiio TRAVELOGUE TRIBUTE Win8, 8.1 by neiio


Welcome to TRAVELOGUE for your Windows 8, 81 desktop.

To get started you'll first need to make sure your system is patched to accept themes.

I recommend using for a user friendly install.


UPDATED | Includes bordered theme & regular bottom borderless theme, Fix 1 pixel off on top caption.

Here is a more in depth article on installing Visual Styles or Themes.


Once your system is patched it's time to install the themes.

Place the contents of the downloaded 'themes' folder into your

'WindowsResourcesThemes' folder.

You should then be able to see your themes installed if you right click on your desktop and select 'personalize' from the menu.  There you'll be able to choose which them you wish to use.

There are included registry tweaks to mimic the sysmetrics.  You'll have to log off then on again to notice the difference.

Also these themes are borderless, which means you'll have to use this handy tool, WinaeroGlass found at…

You'll have to reload it each time you change styles.  I found creating a shortcut to it in my Programs Startup folder to be usefull.

For a more minimal look try using Ribbon Disabler for Windows 8 found here… it also works on 8.1. 

If you have any questions don't be afraid to ask.


Much time and effort when into creating this for Windows 8 & 8.1, so please consider including it in your favs, as well as leaving a comment.

cheers to my mates...

Amazing, I love it. But it seems to have some bugs with Win 8.1 full updated. Context menu on metro UI is not working and some visual bugs with the taskbar (example images: and ) Would be great if you can fix that. ;)

I love how it looks, it's amazing. Great job, Jamie.

BTW, is there other way to hack windows without the registry trick? It doesnt work for me :c

nice theme, but how do you like, hide the icons on open windows, so i can let that blue yellow orange red thing on the top-left be free from windows' ugly icons?
I think this should work:…

Alright this themes is very elegant, and yet there's a still a lot of bug. Well there's only a bug if you use the Travelogue with a bottom thing.
Like in bottom of the bars when you clicked show hidden icons, and idk why it seems like my startbutton is having a little trouble or its a bug? Im using StartIsBack 2.2
See this picture,

neiio Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Open Computer and right-click on "Homegroup" icon present in Navigation pane and select “Change Home Group Settings
Now click on "Leave the homegroup..." link given at bottom. (it will ask, and you need to confirm it)

Open Services.msc. Scroll down and disable

HomeGroup Provider
