    Take a look in 8 Forums at my Win8 machine I just posted, the theme pack works better with 8 for which it was made of course. I got it at Deviant Art. Here is a C&P of the install instructions with all the infos. Note you can use System Transparency by Prisoner and OldNewDesktop from the Gray 2014 theme pack(if you downloaded it).

    Gray8 color pac by gsw953
    A 4 pac color series made for Windows 8.
    It is now updated to use with OldNewExplorer by Tihiy
    http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/1703...ike-win78-one/
    You can read more about at the link or visit AskVG- http://www.askvg.com/freeware-to-bri...lorer-this-pc/
    Basically this program can disable the ribbon,put the details pane back on the bottom,plus a few other tweaks.
    More importantly it will allow the theme to chage the white images in the Contol Panel.
    Which could only be done before by changing the shell32.dll.

    To install this theme you first need to patch your system
    to be able to use custom themes.
    I use this patcher-
    http://www.winmatrix.com/forums/inde...theme-patcher/
    Once this is done
    Copy the gr8 pac folder and all the.theme files from inside the theme folder to
    Windows\Resources\Themes.Then right click on your desktop and choose Personalize
    select the version you want to use in your themes section.
    The transparency is add by using this app-
    http://www.sevenforums.com/free-deve...y-project.html
    only the older version download is working.
    The Start Menu is brought back by using StatIsBack
    http://www.startisback.com/#download-tab

    Also included are a few of modified system files
    The timedate.cpl changes your clock to match the theme
    The wmploc.dll give yo a gray background in WMP 12

    These files are for 64 bit systems only,and are to replace the ones in your
    System32 folder and wow64 folder

    The icons used in the preview are Token by brsev
    and were all manually changed.
    http://brsev.deviantart.com/art/Token-128429570
    The wallpapers were made specially to match the theme pac color by
    my friend Vigoni
    I think that's it and questions just ask me

    The only problem I have is changing the Default Library folder Icons. I have tried the tutorials (at least what I dared to do) to no avail. The "Library icons on my Library drive change fine, but on This PC view, up top where it's called folders, I can't seem to get them to change, even tried "Replace library icons from Bluefish". Any recommendations would be helpful. I'm further on on my Win8 machine here is a couple of screenshots to show what I mean.
