Then you must try Midnight Glass Nature Theme by ~MrGRiM01 on deviantART and DeathStar by ~MrGRiM01 on deviantART .

Both are by Mr Grim !!

After extracting the rar you downloaded, there are two folders -"midnight theme " and "the optional extras". Open the optional extras folder, find there is a exe file named Fullglass. Double click on it, and see it comes to your system trey notification area. Now you will get transparent explorer background. It works with all themes with dark explorer background.

But when you return to normal white xplorer background theme, exit fullglass from your system trey, otherwise you will bet burnt out fonts there.

And pal, have you seen the theme mentioned by me in the just previous post ?

Then Right click on fullglass.exe and run as admin. It should work

Concave 7 with extras !

Here's Mr grims concave 7 in action, was made exclusively for gfx effects forums its now my long term theme previously it was Dark ultimate by Mr grim .
The one thing i would like to be able to do is change the libraries folders i would keep them pretty much the same but i would like the "plate" the icons sit on to be blue glass as are the rest of the folders and system icons, anyone able to do so ? i would be eternally grateful. if we had that template so to speak it could be applied across all mr grims different coloured icon packs

Concave ! Great theme
I used it for a few days. The start menu is extremely nice. As far as I can remember, it has a XP version.
