+1 by Aaron-A-Arts +1 by Aaron-A-Arts
i always wanted a DD in this category. Thanks guys! now go listen to my dubstep. custo is dead.

the dll's in the download are x86. if you use x64 just use the images with nav button customizer

Updated 12/26: This has the light version toolbar fix for chrome/firefox, it also contains many minor updates but i can't remember them all. the file also includes a darkened transparent taskbar version that is VERY incomplete. with the holidays, finals, and some commissioned web design i've been far too busy to make a proper final version of this package but this should address most of the issues that have been brought to my attention. no monochrome versions yet. sorry. happy holidays custo fans!

Updated 11/18: added substyle dark explorer bar (works with Chrome and Firefox ;) ) + lots of minor fixes. thanks to everyone reporting bugs and helping make this theme badass

+1 extras

Updated 11/17: shadowless frames, left/right taskbars, rounded bottoms ;)

USE FIREFOX 7, 8, 9? TOOLBAR FIX

Updated 11/12: i remade the taskbar buttons to accommodate pinned apps and changed/skinned some things. keep the screenshots comming =)

Color scheme based on Google+
Design is inspired by the results of sorting the Windows XP category by Most Popular of all time.
;)

+1 for Windows 7
This theme is a heavily modified Aero. You must get confirmation from me prior to releasing any themes built from or based on my design. Go crazy =p

Resources:

How to Install & Use Custom 3rd Party Themes
Shell32.dll from bAero

Win 7 Nav Buttons Customizer

Windows 7 Start Orb Changer v4

TbarIconBlanker
(this isn't necessary, but if you want that super clean look use it)


PS: There are some elements that i intentionally ignored because i never actually see them in daily use, however there are probably a few little bugs, and some completely ignored sections that will need attention. Please bring to my attention any major issues via screenshot and i'll get it fixed.

But the icons?
What is the theme of your icon?
There's no icon package in your theme file.

Hello I really love your theme but I am upgrading to windows 8 and I was wondering if +1 is compatible with windows 8. However if it is not could you make it compatible or tell me of a windows 8 theme that is similar to yours. Thank you

I have a Problem with this VS; status bars (e.g. VLC's or Foobar2000's Status bar) are all black and unreadable. Could you fix this? Would really love to use this theme, but this minor flaw makes it unusable for me.

This is my favorite theme ever! But running Aero on my little netbook sucks! ((running windows 7 starter that Ive modified to run Aero and custom themes etc.)) so I edited it in WSB to work in basic mode and made a stylehack for it, it isnt perfect but I have to say that I did a good job on the taskbar. ((which is my favorite aspect of this theme))Im willing to share if you feel they could be useful if you decide to try to make this compatible with basic mode:)

If you have Windows x64bit and problems with changing the navigation buttons, do the following:
Download the Windows Navigation Buttons Customizer and run it as administrator->Open the taskmanager and close all "explorer.exe" processes (most important step; your dektop should be clear now except for the navchanger program)->click on the symbol you want to change and select "Change selectet Bitmap"->search for the folder it's in->click on the bitmap you want to change it with and it's done.

I changed the hover-"back/forth" symbol-skin so that it doesn't look the same when you hover over these buttons in a matching green color wich you can download here: [link]
--------------------------------------------------------------
I really enjoy this theme, even though I fuc*ed my windows system up by trying to change the explorer.exe and ExplorerFrame.dll, but that's my and not Aaron's fault. :stupidme:

Little side note: If you have to repair your system with commands like sfc /scannow, it will also reset the files you've had to patch with the Universal Theme Patcher, so you have to open the UTP-Program as admin again, restore and repatch those 3 files otherwise this theme won't work and your explorer will look like from win98.
