    Mac Caption Buttons - Windows 7


    Hey guys,

    Is there any way for me to get the Mac style caption buttons (max, min and close) into Windows 7 without having to use a theme pack? I have a theme pack, but it changes the whole look of the explorer window (see screenshot 1) and my task bar which I do not like at all, and Win7 Personalisation doesn't make a difference. All I want is to use the three caption buttons on my current theme.

    SCREENSHOT 1: http://i825.photobucket.com/albums/z...creenshot1.jpg

    I've made a rough mockup of the kind of thing I'm looking for below:

    Is there any way to do this at all? Just extract the buttons? Or download just the buttons somewhere?

    Thanks :)

    Unfortunately these buttons can only be changed by changing the theme, You would need to ask a theme builder who is willing to do this for you, good luck with that!!

    Hmm, so there is no way to just get the buttons? Does anyone know anyone who would be able to help me with this situation?

    RE: Mac window buttons


    hi there it is possible to get the mac window buttons, but is not as good a the transforation pack. this will allow you to transform (most) of your pc to look and feel like mac this includes the window buttons. first go to Snow Transformation Pack 1.0 Released - WinXSoft.com
    and download the pack, open it and restart your computer when it tells you to.
    once you have restarted open the installer again to start installation, this will take about 5 mins,(NOTE THE SCREEN WILL GO BLANK FOR A MINUTE) you will just see the backround image and will complete the installation.

    to get the window buttons on the left download left sider here
