Steam VS for Windows 7 by yorgash Steam VS for Windows 7 by yorgash
A Steam themed visual style for Windows 7.
The visual style incorporates the appearance of Steam with a functioning Windows visual style.

The theme comes with 2 substyles - aside from the default, there's an automatically centering taskbar, and a more simple one. Will be adding another style later. Taskbar is usable with small icons, and side taskbar too, though the main focus is the bottom mode.

I'll be making matching icons and templates in a later release, but for now, it uses the timeless Token icons, as it was almost a perfect match for the Steam look. I'm also planning to make a matching Rainmeter suite.
I've also made preparations for making the Pixel Vision Steam theme styles VS.


Many thanks:

The Windows 8.1 port is finished, many thanks to neiio

I've included the system clock that way originally mady by Y-N-1-F

Steam vs Windows 8.1 system-clock (Timedate.cpl) by Y-N-1-F 

I've also made an installer to be used with 7TSP.

I've separately uploaded the 7tsp installer, since DA has some kind of problem updating the main file when zip inside zip is involved. Download from my st.ash:

I personally do not run Aero on my gaming PC because I only have 1.5 GB VRAM and I use NVIDIA's Surround. That feature puts a huge strain on my VRAM availability when playing any game in Surround, thus I mentioned this to the author when I found this gem. I was not only given a quick response, like 10 minutes, but the author provided a Win 7 Basic theme within an hour of my comment, literally an hour. The only thing I wish that would be added is an option for different colors concerning the HDD remaining space. All in all this is a solid, great looking and well supported Theme, 5 Stars.

Great theme, The only thing I did not care for was my voice communication tool bar became a little hard to read with the word being black and the back ground dark grey when the program is not selected. I.E TeamSpeak, Mumble, Ventrilo and so on. The same goes for Microsoft word and Excel being hard to work in due to the background being dark grey. However I don't feel this takes away from the over all enjoyment of this theme and its a must download if you like changing the theme on your computer. This way a great design and will be keeping a eye out for other themes to come.

Just thought I'd mention, the 7tsp version doesn't include the start orb and login screen. You might want to include these.

When trying to Install it using 7tsp It doesn't come out how it should. could you help? this is what it looks like.

I'm not sure if the same problem exists in version for Win7 (since I don't have it :P), but in version for Win8.1 the taskbar doesn't support flashing notification.
You know... This yellow flashing of icon if it "asks" for attention and is in the background.

It's quite annoying, 'cuz when I get message on Steam I don't see it.

Btw. can it go any deeper? Metro skin for Steam. Steam theme for Windows. :XD:
yorgash Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
That problem does exist on Win7 too, I even made a version that supported it, but looked awkward, so decided not to include it as a substyle thinking I'll get back to it later, but I've been a bit busier than expected these last months.

When I have the time I'll fix it.

IIRC there is already a Metro skin for Steam, might want to try it :D
Hiddenus Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I know that it is. I'm using it 'cuz overlay in games is a lot tidier. ;D
If this theme (for windows I mean) had at least a blinking bar below the icons instead the whole icons it'd be ok too ;P
yorgash Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Oh I see!
Okay, I'll see if I can make it like that fast, actually there have been requests for it before already, so it's high time I fixed it :)
Hiddenus Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I'm not british nor american, but I guess the correctly it should be "it's about time to fix it" (rather than "it's high time I fixed it"). ;) I like helping ;D

Also I understand that you might been busy (or maybe even had times when you could do it, but was not in the mood for it) so it's not a problem. Good luck, man. ;)
