    So you did. Didn't spot that, sorry. The TF tutorial offers the edited theme as a download....
    This aerolite.theme file is only the default "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\aero.theme" file already included in Windows that has been edited to use the aerolite.msstyles file instead of aero.msstyles file that are also both included in Windows by default.
    ...while my link tells you how to make an edited copy for yourself.

    Thank you guys for all the suggestions, but all I am looking for is the windows basic size, shape, and color of the theme. Performance is not what I want it's looks that I want. Thanks guys.

    Aerolite + Open shell (classic skin) have nothing to do with performance. Do not be confused by a side-track.

    I know I am just looking for the style of the theme.

    So try those and see how it looks. Easily reversible.

    And I pointed you to WindowBlinds:

    A quick search gives
    WinCustomize: Explore : WindowBlinds : True Classic

    You could spend longer and find something you prefer.

    Hello again
    I already use classic shell and own a purchased copy of window blinds. True classic is the windows classic theme and I want the windows basic theme with the blue color and red close button. Thank you and just to let you know the diamond theme is not windows basic and I don't know how to quickly throw together a window blinds skin. I find the window blinds skin editor skin studio confusing and all I want is basic theme. Thank you for all your help maybe find a basic window blinds skin if no actual .theme file.

    You can disable DWM temporarily to get the Aero Basic theme (Windows 7 blue opaque title bar). Note that UWP apps do not work without DWM.
