Metalik Glass for Win7 by kAtz93 Metalik Glass for Win7 by kAtz93

Inspired from the Metalik SL by Julien Sagot

Some great screenshots using Metalik Glass :
[link] [link] [link] [link]

How to install :

- For the themes and the explorerframe.dll - use this [link]
Remember,choose the right file for your system (for example : if you use Win7 x86,rename the explorerframe (x86).dll to explorerframe.dll and then use Theme Installer to replace it)
- For the explorer.exe - use Restorator and replace BMP number 6801,6805 & 6809

Some shouts :

To =AP-GRAPHIK for his help with the system files things.I really can't complete this theme without him.Thank you mate :D

and ^Alexander-GG for making for me a special resolution of his awesome wall - Grungy.Go,check his other dopee wps and give him some loves :la:

Note : the system files i included in the pack is for Win7 SP1.So,upgrade your system before replace those files.

Note II : If you don't use SP1 or don't want to upgrade to SP1 until you get notice from Windows Update,take a look at evthan's explorerframe port for 7RTM [link]

One suggester said: "Metalik Glass for Win7 by ~kAtz93 is a very clean and pleasant windows 7 theme that uses the aero effect in an awesome way."
Another suggester said: "Minimalism is jumping out from the preview itself. Metalik Glass for Win7 has got a good view of blurness in gradients, which makes it a perfect match with glass."
And yet another suggester said: "It's clean, simple & beautiful."

CleutonSS Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2013
Fantastic, was simple and elegant, the colors on top of the buttons "minimize" and "close" to give more charm. Very Good  Clap

It's very pretty, but the explorerframe.dll is not on that page.

is it normal that topmsstyles havent the same frames colors than the normal?

Using this theme. Its simply brilliant.
drkblz Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2011
I can get the start button and the back/forward buttons to work, but nothing else. I used Windows Theme Installer, and had it install the Explorer Frame, Theme, and modified Explorer. Am I missing something? You can email me at
drkblz Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2011
To specify, when installed I get the classic windows look. If I switch to Aero in Windows (not in Theme Installer) I get the forward/back and start buttons, but nothing else.
