windows 7 PLAIN/SOLID color themes, please help how hard can this be?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Please kindly advise me where I can get themepack themes (so no 3rd party ones) based on the windows 7 basic theme or based on the windows areo theme where the coloring is solid and non-patterned.

    I know in the advanced windows color menu you can untick the tranparancy but in the color there is still a glow effect/shining in it... if you look at the attached pic which is part of my modzilla browser you see a lining, I just would like plain solid coloring blue-grey whatever but no patterns in it.

    How hard can this be? You d think it is easy but I cant find any except for going back to windows classic. only windows 7 basic  comes in the baby blue...........

    anybody can help me?

    I find thousands of windows 7 areo themes on the web but to me they are all ruined by the fact they are areo and part see through plus multicoloured........

  • The reason for the glowing / shining is because of the DWM desktop window management. This is what stops your windows sticking together which used to happen a lot in XP.  Theres noting you can do about that unless you go for a black / mid-grey theme
