Hi, just an update with my findings in windows 7 RTM. For the taskbar the images is the same as in 7229.

I also made a pic to display what numbers the pictures have for a window.

Finally you can use Universal Theme Patcher to patch windows 7

You will get all the files and instructions you need in the zip file that contains the theme you have downloaded from

Here is one black that I use:

And thx for the great advice here to do it.

Windows 7 Ultimate

Just upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit) today - but I'm confused... when I go into the Aero folder I have to go farther, into the en-US folder... and then I find aero.msstyles.mui ... and I don't know what an MUI file is. Tried replacing it, to no avail. Is this something that is occuring on newer releases of Windows 7? Or am I just too computer illiterate to know what's going on?
