28/06/2011 Thank you for the Daily Deviation, :) It is my birthday today and this is such a great present.
Thanks to !Sakrilege , ~freniizui and ~SV84 for suggesting it and `OtisBee for the feature.

This VS is for Windows 7. It's tested and working on both 32 and 64-bit versions. System files are for SP1

- Three visual styles : Dusk, Dawn and Noon
- Support for top, bottom and left taskbar,
- Two different fonts: Windows default Segoe UI font and smaller Calibri font.
- Beautiful Wallpaper by Lars Bjork, check out His Flicker Page for more great photos

INSTALLATION: Detailed instructions can be found in the included README file

IMPORTANT! Do not use UxStyle it has stopped working and keeps reverting custom themes to basic. Use UniversalThemePatcher instead: [link]

one suggester said: "Glass Onion for W7 by ~SolMiler is one of the most perfect visual styles I've ever used. The look and feel is just amazing. Even more amazing than the look was the instructions included. There was no guess work on my part. I followed the included instructions and now enjoy a beautiful desktop. it's a total package."

another suggester said: "Glass Onion for W7 contains not one, but two visual styles of unmatched quality. It is just so beautiful and well executed that I will be using it for a long, long time."

I wish this was available for 8.1. I just remembered how I used to use this a lot when I had Windows 7. It's such a beautiful theme.

how do u change it
Mandelay Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2014
I replaced the explorerframe but nothing changed. I have a 64bit and I did change the explorerframe for both the 32 and 64 folders like in the readme. question. since i have a 64x do I need to use both the 64x and 86x universal theme patchers? Cause I've only used the 64x.

and also the exit, minimize and hide button in the top right are too big for some reason. their the default windows 7 ones.

-sorry for troubling you

How to change system icons?
Mr-Xy Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014
could you change the color when you right click an empty space for shading something, and change the style when you highlight a file

I tried many themes before I found this one. I've been using it for more than 2 years now and haven't found more beautiful one since then. Thank you!
