Hands down I have found the best Vista Theme out there available for WB. Logoff and Shutdown Buttons work perfectly, glass is very nice, Explorer shell also very very nice, I honestly don't think any style even comes close to being this good.

P.S. Try it for yourself and you'll see ;)

I hate the titlebar when windows maximized.. so ugly... Aero starry-eyed is better at that point cause it keeps teh glass....

Most links seem to be dead now - what would you say is the best Vista skin reflecting the current build?

Or can anyone please, please please, pretty please give me any valid links that you can use as a "Glass" transparent effect, like at the top of the new Windows Vista? Thank you, if anyone gives me a link.

Yes I agree, but that's why I use it minimized but it looks maximized.

There's only two ways that I know of, one being the use of Glass2k. But that makes the entire window have transparency (including text). The other is to use WindowBlinds and one of the Vista themes (can find some at deviantart.com ).

I'm like you, I liked the XP style of doing explorer - but the graphics of Vista. What I did was take Vista Royale and replaced (using Photoshop and Reshacker) the graphics with some of my own custom ones and another (made by someone else) Vista theme that was black in color. Works great. Looks pretty authentic, besides not having the transparency around the borders. If you use Y'z Shadow and Y'z Toolbar, you could probably tweak it a little bit more. I can't release it though, because it's not original artwork and I don't feel like tracking down the authors to get permission. But the info I gave you maybe enough to get you on your way.

Go to C:\WINDOWS\resources\Themes\Visual style you want to modify\Shell\NormalColor, once inside you'll see a file called Shellstyle.dll delete it and paste this shellstyle:

Then apply the vs again and you'll see the changes.
