Totally excellent; but, could you do a blue version? Maybe a set; W7 blue and Vista blue?
TaeyeonisBae Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Port to Windows 8? ;D I love this theme so much. I cannot use it however. :(

I installed the patches but the the explorer appears the same!
I'll be thankful if you assist me with this.
Dimitrycs Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2012
I have a problem, I did evrything with patching those 3 things, but when i wanted to change back to default i just clicked restore. But now there is no a "box" over icon when i hover with pointer over icon and select it. The icon turns blue like on xp when i select it. How can i restore win7 defaults?

Simply amazing. This has just about everything I love from Dream, and fixes some of the smaller issues I didn't like. Great job, keep up the good work.

I truly love this VS...

I have had it in my collection for a long time, and am currently using it. But I had not checked back into this thread for so long, and didn't see it come by either, but I was using the older version that didn't have the Firefox download fix. So I kept thinking, I wish I could fix that... it's almost a perfect VS! Which led me to search for this thread again, and sure enough, you had already fixed it (and yes, it works)! That makes me happy, because I really love this VS :D

Thank you for making it.
troubada Featured By Owner May 15, 2011
Only 1 minor issue I found: open Regedit.exe (Registry Editor) in Windows (which I use a lot) and you will see on the left navigation pane that HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT is cut off on the last letter. Actually, all of them are cut off except HKEY_USERS (because it's a short name). It doesn't matter how wide or narrow you make the navigation pane, the letters keep being chopped off at the end. If not for that minor issue, I'd say this VS is perfect ;)
troubada Featured By Owner May 18, 2011
It's not only in the registry editor: in the navigation pane in explorer, it also chops off the names. For example, my C: drive is named, "C-RAID Win7x64" and it chops off the last digit (4).

I have tried to alter the font sizes in the muistyles via ResourceHacker, but it remains.

Please fix this and your VS will be perfect :)
troubada Featured By Owner May 28, 2011
Never mind please... it was actually something I did myself, trying to get rid of the bold text (I changed text sizes, apparently). I fixed it, so please ignore what I said above.

Sorry... thanks for this VS :)
troubada Featured By Owner May 18, 2011
Strange thing about the navigation pane in Explorer (the pane on the left) is that it chops of my C:\ drive name, but not the names under *Favorites, and some of them are longer... Maybe that info will help you.
troubada Featured By Owner May 18, 2011
Here are the problems I mentioned in a screenshot: [link]

Notice how the names in Registry Editor's pane get cut off, and notice how, in Explorer, the drive names get cut off. I think it is the same underlying problem.

Ok I'm just gonna say this here since I respect your work, especially from Vista. Do you think you or anyone else will return to the shellstyle themes? I've noticed that everyone wants to just make the bland and plain shellstyles. Is it more difficult for Windows 7?

You and Steel89 have great styles for Windows Vista and even if they were ported to Windows 7, they would smash some of the latest themes I've seen for Windows 7. So far, there has been good styles for 7, but nothing that blows the Vista styles away and the shellstyles have no design anymore.

I'm just asking will you are anyone else return to the great shellstyles of Vista or port from Vista ever again?

You can make a topic like this but in pink for girls?
Nsns33 Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2010  Hobbyist Interface Designer
its work with Win 7 basic ? =$
Mathlol1 Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2010
Awsome theme.
1. Much smoother to the eyes
2. BUT there is one thing, the bottom outline on the "windows bar" makes the white rectangle really stand out.
Perhaps you could blend it like the original aero theme if you venture to make an update?
Mathlol1 Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2010
I really do like it but I have my windows bar always showing and can't get past how the icons blare out more than the original, especially the selected window.

Unfortunately, I'll store this for now. It's still one of the best themes i've come across
coolerpvr Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2010
Can you make it like the sonye theme different colors, Soft blue yellow green or something like that?
would be great

Nice Theme !!!

But there are one bug and one style glitch.

When i make the Symbol Font a little bit greater then cuts the last signs in the Explorer Tree.
The baseline is too high.

See it here > [link]

Plz fix it!
giannisgx89 Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2010  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I can't do anything about that :/
p0ly3000 Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2010
With the baseline glitch i can live.
But with the truncated text. No. Whats up? Other Styles works perfect with a greater Symbol Font like 10 or 11! :x
eesa2 Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2010
after changing a lot of different themes, two of your themes: sonye and this Crescendo are always the best for daily use, thank you for your nice work!
SpringsTS Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2010
I've 2 suggestions for the theme:
_ Is it possible to make the titlebar buttons bigger?
_ You may have little bugs with the new menu of Firefox 4 (I'm using the 6th beta, and the menu background disappears with Crescendo)

However, as I said before, very nice theme! ^^
adrianvincent Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2010
Beautiful theme! Within the alternative preview which icons are you using for the Windows 7 taskbar and folders?
