__________________________________________________________________________
Introduction:
From Wikipedia: Windows Aero was revised to be more touch-friendly. 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]

- Favorite Links: FindeXer win7 kit by fediaFedia, as part of Aero Ultimate 7 6801 Beta [link]

-Visual style:Windows 7 Basic for XP by leosss [link]

-Shellstyle: 7 Shellstyle Task-Panel by TeChNo-tRaNCeR [link]
__________________________________________________________________________

Notes:

You do not need to follow the following instructions if you are using Vista or 7.

To install Segoe UI font, just go in the "Segoe UI" folder and copy all of the files to C:\WINDOWS\Fonts. You're done!

To enable cleartype for the optimal aero experience, right-click a blank area of the desktop,
click properties, click the appearance tab, click effects, check font smoothing, and from
the drop-down list, select cleartype. Click OK on all windows.

However, the only issue I have with it is the shadow. It acts like the border of the window and whenever I click on it, I change the size of the window. Is there a version of this that has no shadow?

ainq Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012
you can try cropping the shadow out, but I'm afraid that's a border skin limitation.

I have windows 7 ultimate but aero not working
if I install it aero will enabled in opera with glass themes?
Reply
:iconainq:
ainq Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2012
no. opera uses the windows api for glass, which borderskin does not support.
