THIS WORK its not a stand alone work.

It has 4 visual styles and 2 system files (UIRibbon.dll) for each version (32 bit and 64 bit)

Names of the visual styles/themes:

Metal is a brushed theme with fat vertical separators, so suitable for touch monitor tablets/computers.
Pt (= Platinum) is a lighter brushed looking theme with fat vertical separators, so suitable for touch monitor tablets/computers.
02 is a white/liht gray version with thin vertical separators in mountain lion style.
H20 (= Aqua,Water) is a lighter gray version with thin vertical separators and a light blue main surface so for be more relaxing after many hours work to pc.

It has been made for using together with my ''imac theme for Windows 8 RTM'' system files theme, but replace the shell32.dll of your system and use that from 'Aqua World os x style Theme for Windows 8 rtm' , if you wish to have the preview pane to top, and details pane to the right.

so install exploreframe.dll and imageres from ''imac theme for Windows 8 RTM'' 1. 32bit [link] - 2. 64 bit [link]

and install the shell32.dll from the 'Aqua World os x style Theme for Windows 8 rtm' [link]

those system files refer to instructions are for 8, if you have a win 8.1 system use zeusosx.deviantart.com/art/Mac… > no need system files to that, just to install OldNewExplorer Version from (the bottom of web page) : www.msfn.org/board/topic/17037…

yes the images started from 2006 for my first vista styles, i modified some or even replaced some and here is some of the final ones, though the real work is in code modification of system and to some point to the visual styles.

there are 2 different areas that show me, the first is the POPUP menu, this is when we make right clik to the desktop and the second is [propably, as the screenshot is cut] the navigation pane , the left side of the explorer window.

the pop up menu i a normal aero visual style is if i remember well :
its background the image 988, its borders image 989, its seaparator image 996,the gutter image 994, the mouse over/pressed image 995 > for changing the text color from black to white you have yo know hex editting and to know how to search the code for finding the location of code or to buy a programm such as the 'windows style builder'> there is a beta version which is given to already owners of the application> though a new one will come soon.
about the navigation pane also is not an image so you have to search in code or to buy a program.
sorry i cant help more.

alejandro there are 2 things to your preview that you have to take care:
1. it is possible that the microsoft display adapter driver does not give the correct resolution or just dont show the theme as should, for your monitor, so :
do first this, go to
Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display
and select medium (125%), then sign out, sign in, then again go to :
Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display
and select smaller (100%), then sign out, sign in.

i think this will correct the problem.
[i have problems to my system also with the system resolution as the windows adapter driver does not support the correct resolution for my monitor, so i updated[=changed to this case] the adaptor driver> not from web, but from my wi 7 partition, from the windows folder> though i think to your case perchaps not problem with this]

now the second is optional, but my themes have been made to work with my system files, as i describe >
so install exploreframe.dll and imageres from ''imac theme for Windows 8 RTM'' 1. 32bit [link] - 2. 64 bit [link]

and install the shell32.dll from the 'Aqua World os x style Theme for Windows 8 rtm' [link]

===================================
there is only one known small bug when we change shell32.dll and that becomes not because we add any new specific element or code, just because we modified it> so make any change to the shell32.dll the WEI will not complete, it gets stuck at testing the CPU, doesn't matter what changes you make to it, as soon as the shell32.dll becomes unsigned it breaks the WEI.
wei= go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Performance Information and Tools and rate your system> so you can do that before the modification> before copy / paste my shell32.dll if you like to rate your system.

Still at the end of the day who cares about the WEI anyway, aside from that I have not seen any other 'problems' yet, if we can name this as 'problem'.

In the preview one sees in the metallic windowframe to the left and to the right white borders? Why didn't you fill the whole area?

ZEUSosX Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
Thank you.

I was tried to give a shining edges looking, its not ease> if it is complete with gray color it is giving to me a less 'happy' feeling> its not exactly the word describe[infact without the shining edge, it possible look more 'plastic' than 'metal platinum' > i can give a 'fill' version , if find time.> also i can remake some mouse over images to taskbar , as i have made them transparent , from past, for looking cleaner.

you mean> not making bold types of fonts> because in my win 8 themes this is the difference.
for doing such needed to re make the code in many parts> means needed a lot of work.
(the reason i made bold types is that can be looked easier, specially for people like me who had problems with the eyes [the last 2 years]).
