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 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.

Is there a way to fix the recoloring of certain panels (f.e. the run dialog has still some white panels)? 
Odrac2 Featured By Owner Edited 3 days ago
Hi, it seems like not all colors for hyperlinks were changed. Some hyperlinks are still blue (0 0 255) even if I change the link color under Display. If I change the link color while using a standard aero theme all links are recolored correctly.

Edit: Some links use the IE settings for their color, changing the color settings in IE fixed it.

You only need to apply the default theme (right click on desktop, personalize, apply default theme).

This is fantastic. Only thing I dislike is that I use Outlook a lot and having the grey background makes some emails nearly impossible to read. It would be nice if you could release a version that had some sort of light grey background color for windows.
ajwsert Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2014
There is a way to change the background color for windows, you even can do that. However, the downside is that color is shared for several elements that you wouldn't even think it's related to window's background and then it's hard to conciliate. Unfortunately it's not an issue with the theme itself but with the way as the OS or softwares paint those areas. That's one of the main annoyances with dark themes.

I absolutely loved this theme, but seeing as how notifications are a vital part of my PC usage, I have to wait until that's implemented sadly.
