Windows 7: Larger and no-shiny taskbar icons


03 Aug 2012   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64
 
 

I have been playing around with the Restorator and its working pretty well. The only point is that I am not sure which code belongs to what. Is there something like a documentation or something that shows all files indexes?

Thanks.

I really appreciate your help Jerry.

I am trying to learn customizing the themes from the resource you gave me earlier, so where is the part that I can define the shiny look and adjust it?

Ali.

There are 7 or 10 states for each image look at screenshots, the ones that are 7 states are the same so you only need to edit 1 and use it 2 more times (3 for Horizontal and 3 for Vertical), in the 10 states image the top 7 are the same as the 7 states images.

It best to start a new theme based off the default aero theme using a copy look at Post #38 of this thread it will so you how to do it Start menu color change ??

If you are going to start themeing I would get Ave's Windows7 Style Builder it makes it easier.

Jerry,

Thank you very much. I think I will consider purchasing a copy of the Vista Style Builder. Until then I will use your screen shots to modify my theme. I have had the problem of "not liking windows 7 look" from the first day I started using it.


Thank you again.
Regards.
