:download: Download Minimal Taste Reloaded for W7 | Info.

Package includes:

- The theme itself
- Fonts need to make it work perfectly

- Matching windows cursor schemes

What's not in the package:

- Icons used in the screenshot: Token by brsev

- gdipp - the tinny app that makes your fonts clear and smooth like those in Linux Distros. It's available in 32 and 64 bit flavors [link]

How to:

1. Patch your system files and install the required fonts!
1.1. Be sure to patch your system files before you can use 3rd party windows themes. Use this tool to do it: [link]
1.2. Install the fonts found in the folder "Resources/Fonts"
