Windows 8 VS "v1.2" by Misaki2009 Windows 8 VS "v1.2" by Misaki2009
WINDOWS 8 VS (v1.0) for Windows 7



Please do NOT use any of the Taskbar, Start Menu, Caption Buttons or Explorer Frames without my permission.
Tested on RTM version and SP1, x86 and x64!


Aero Taskbar preview - [link]
Metro Taskbar preview - [link]



UPDATE 16/09/11: Added new caption buttons (from Windows 8 Developer Preview), fixed a few small bugs, added a few more wallpaper from Windows 8, added a new version which includes a new taskbar presented by Microsoft - [link] - I have to mention that this will be the last update for a while because I switched to Windows 8 and removed Windows 7! I will most probably release a new update (1.3) when Windows 8 Beta is released.

UPDATE 10/09/11: Added new caption buttons, fixed some small bugs and added a new wallpaper. The Start orb will be included in version 1.2 in a few days/weeks.

UPDATE 26/08/11: Added new temporary caption buttons made in Photoshop CS5, the original ones will be included in update 1.1 sometime in September 2011! Also, the start button is not included because it's not entirely made by me.

UPDATE 30/06/11: Fixed taskbar on top, right and left part of the screen + some small bugs. The next update will be released when a new Windows 8 build will leak. See you then!



Install:
Copy the contents of the Theme folder in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes



Thanks to piskareLa for helping with the testing of this Visual Style!

P.S.: You need to patch the theme dll's first using -- [link] and restart the operating system.

For better experience, get UserTile from here -- [link]

Many thanks to consume123 who allowed me to use some of his resources, check out his visual style here - [link]

A theme for windows 8. Can you give me back my start menu? lol. A way to change wallpapers on the start menu, or something. Anything?

There's no theme for WINDOWS 8 RTM that works properly for the moment. If you want the old Start Menu then try Classic Shell...

Black title font color is bad...But so is white unless you do something about the background of title. (It is unreadable.)

have done it but you cannot install both the aero & metro at the same cause they the same name!

Yes, I know, unfortunately, but you can edit the names of it and in the .theme file as well :D anyway I think the aero taskbar looks much better :D

How do you install the two themes (aero & metro taskbar)?

Install:
Copy the contents of the Theme folder in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

you need to patch the theme files first if you haven't done that already :)

It looks amazing. Finaly I found almost Windows 8 stock theme. There is some unfinished details like apps jump menus (right click on app in taskbar), but not so major.
Keep good work. I can't wait for start orb :)
