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.
What do you think?

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.

I have noted another "minor" bug with this theme: there's not a 3rd state for checkboxes. If a checkbox is a tri-state one the 3rd state shows as unchecked. This issue can mislead users and make it hard to distinguish the proper state of a checkbox.

I like the attention you have put on the menu font colors.In most other skins i have tried, the window, menu and other colors blend in completely rendering the skin unusable, but this one has really worked for me, thanks!!I also love your other theme "Dota 2 windows theme WIP" that you have for sale. Most of your work here seems rather dark(in colour), I would like to see something warmer maybe light brown or orange brown, light orange.

Thank you kindly!

The Dota 2 Windows theme has also since been released, and as such - like all my themes - is now available for free to download.

True enough, most of my themes are rather dark. Only the League of Legends Forum style theme and the Intel theme is light themed currently, but I'll probably make some more light themes in the future.

Nice! how do I install the clock versions for the W7 theme?
Reply
:iconyorgash:
yorgash Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
It's in the System Files folder; the clock is handled by timedate.cpl.
You have to take ownership of your \Windows\system32\timedate.cpl, rename it to something like timedate_backup.cpl, then copy mine over.

I have installed and also installed the Token IconPack. Love it. Is there anyway I can make it not turn my Notepad and Outlook gray?

Thanks!
Sadly the background for most MS programs (ironically) are one of the downsides in dark themes I can't find a workaround for.
