What do I do with all these theme folders?
Sorry I know the title is pretty poopy bad but I just can't sum this all up!
I have followed these instructions and installed the patches: https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorial...om-themes.html
this is the theme I am trying to install: https://mangosango.deviantart.com/jo...9818?#/d4rtdfc
Please see attached image for content of folder. I have intalled thepatches and retstarted and then navigated to the Windows/Recources/Themese folder, but I'm not sure which files to place in it. I do know the theme comes in multiple mods and fonts. I was hoping someone more experienced with this could help me out
update: i have made some progress and was able to partially change things but the start orb wont change and things dont really look as they should. Maybe I am getting some combination wrong? I'm not sure what to do with the MODS, Startorbs,Explorerframe,Grey Matter folders?
second update: okay, i figured out the start orb, there was a program than changes it in the folder. Still not sure about the other stuff.

I was able to figure it out. First off, I did not notice the .exe's which allow you to change the folder icons as well as the startorb. Those can be found in their respective folders. Run the exe's and it walks ya through it. As for the themes it was pretty easy once I saw what had to be done. The available themes are Calibri, Arial, Segoe UI, Grey Matter, DNA, Helix and Lemonade. Each is it's own entire theme. Open each folder and drag the folder within to the Windows/Resources/Themes folder. Then also place the .theme into the Windows/Resources/Themes folder. Thats should be it! You can now click on the .theme to use it or right click your desktop and choose Personalize and it will be in the list.
