For example, the title bar buttons are now slightly bigger.
Then how come all of the other skins have vista buttons and resources? Because they didn't bother to update the buttons and images. So, I extracted everything from aero.msstyles to bring you this skin.
Please look at the Feature List below:
Features: -Re-Extracted from Aero.Msstyles using WSB -Perfect Emulation of Aero Theme with Glow, Blur, and Reflection -Segoe UI font 9pt for all windows, bundled with package -ClearType enabling instructions for XP for a better aero look -All 16 Windows 7 Colors -Perfect explorer bars and buttons -ReMasked borders -Perfect Borders -Perfect Win7 Style Explorer and Windows
Installation: Extract the contents of the ZIP file. Copy "Border Skin 0.2.9" to wherever you want it. Run "Border Skin.exe" and configure the settings. Enjoy! __________________________________________________________________________ Stuff I recommend: (for XP only): - Styler toolbar: Windows 7 Styler Toolbar (Windows 7 Aero) by chrizlu [link]
