Shiki Colors for Windows Seven by winplayboy Shiki Colors for Windows Seven by winplayboy
It is my second Visual style for windows seven based on orignal shiki colors for windows xp by heebijeebi [link]

I brought this visual style to windows seven by his help. Big Thanks to him.

Visual Style features
1). It contains two taskbar versions. Light taskbar and dark taskbar. Supports bottom, top, right and left taskbar version.
2). Fully compatible with Aero and Basic.
3). Fully Compatible with x32 and x64 versions
4). Shell32 mod to get the white background navigation like basic theme.
5). Modified the explorerframe to reduce the items gap in itemsview to display more items.

Update 2.03.2012
1). Added New Color Scheme - Human
2). Updated Screenshot
3). Fixed Minor things
4). Screenshot of Upcoming color schemes added.

Update 21.03.2012
1). Changed start menu a little bit.
2). Changed scroll bars.
3). Added new colors schemes
4). Added Shell32 Mod
5). Added explorerframe.dll for x32 and x64 bit versions.
6). Changed other elements a little bit.

Install Notes
1). Copy the theme files to windows\resources\themes folder
2). Apply the theme.
3). Replace the explorerframe.dll according the color schemes you want to use. By replacing the explorerframe you will also get the reduced items height in itemsview to get more compact and clean look.
4). Apply the shell32 mod to change the navigation panel of control panel to white. This shell32 mod is provided by ~saarineames [link]

Thanks to
1). ~saarineames [link] for providing his visual style as base.
2). ~heebijeebi [link] for providing the source and help.

Hey, nice! Any possibility to port it to Windows 8?

is step 4 necessary(applying shell32 mod)?

it is optional. It is there to remove the colored side pane in control panel etc to white color.

An application named 'Windows 7 Aero Blur Tweaker' removes the white border. Great theme.

If anyone is still wondering what the white border is, it's caused by Aero blur. You need to disable it. I used a tool called 'Windows 7 Aero Blur Tweaker'. Great theme.

its awesome using it now, reminds me of Gui Relax, any chance you can make the same green from Gui Relax instead of Dark Grey taskbar and borders?

Also, any chance to update the Start Menu to show icon?
