Disclaimer:
I am not responsible for anything that happens to your computer due to the replacement of system files or the installation of this theme.
These files have been created and tested on Windows7 Home Premium x64; they will work on other versions of Windows7, but not including x86 systems.
If you attempt to use the system files on x86, explorer will fail to start. Please backup the files you are replacing in case of failure.
However, I have included the bitmaps used in modifying the system files if you wish to do it yourself.

Instructions:

// Installation //

*Theme*
1. Open the 'Theme' folder.
2. Drag both 'metro.theme' and the 'Metro' folder to 'C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\'

*System Files* *See Disclaimer*
1. Open the 'Resources' folder.
2. Open the 'x64' folder.
3. Go about replacing (by means of backup and replace) 'C:\Windows\explorer.exe' with the 'explorer.exe' included in this .zip (only if your system is x64)
4. Go about replacing (by means of backup and replace) 'C:\Windows\system32\explorerframe.dll' with the 'explorerframe.dll' included in this .zip (only if your system is x64)

Please enjoy the theme.

/* Update 2012.2.15 */

I'm curious how you got the Start menu that way? I've got this theme installed, and I love it. Just curious.

and when I rightclick on a icon on the taskbar the font is in white, on white background can you somehow fix that?

I'm having two issues with your theme (which is great by the way). First, the hover drop-down menu ( for creating new folders, organizing folder options) in explorer malfunctions whenever hovering over the options. Second, the text in the aero menu is white when right-clicking icons in the taskbar, so I can't see any text except the icons. Can these two things be addressed? Other than that, your theme is perfect.

Well balanced and pleasant vs. Did you notice the contextual menus on pinned (and unpinned) icons on the taskbar don't render the text properly? The tooltips work, though. Minor, but would be great if fixed. Nice work!

Woo, good job! I'm with *sergiogarcia9 on some of the start menu images, but overall the theme is pretty darn complete. I love the taskbar and the scrollbars too. Everything plays off the windows designs that you settled on earlier really well. The caption buttons are pretty sick too! Thanks a lot for creating and sharing this great theme!

It's just an 80% opaque black taskbar. I can't really call something so simple mine.

ok :) what if I based my 2020 VS on yours (I'll make an aero taskbar, same thing for the SM, the menus & the buttons) ? :?

You can base it on mine if you want, but I would prefer it if you would make your own images. My point being, don't blatantly rip it off.

satur - "you do nice work - but, some of the work you entitle "metro" isn't classic, clean "metro" - in fact, i can never find much about your work that reflects the "metro ui" - but, good luck to you."

It's my vision of what the aero/metro crossover should be. Simple and clean.

Looks pretty good. There are some things which you haven't skinned though, which makes it look sorta unfinished. Mainly the start menu programs list hovers (for some reason not all of them are the custom hover), and the aero preview on the taskbar (when you hover an open app for a bit, and then a preview pops up). There's a few more as well.

Other than that, not a bad theme. Can't really see why you named it Metro though, as it doesn't really seem to be designed to look anything like Metro.
