Windows 7 (beta2) Theme - Adapted from win8cp.png, but with Windows 7 buttons.

Windows 7 (beta4) Theme - stardard8win7.png, but with Windows 7 buttons, and slightly lighter shadows. The frames on this look more like Windows 7.

I replaced all of the images of the rtm theme with the images of the rp theme almost pixle for pixle. The only changes that were made fixing the sides of the windows and the aero peek outline.

Easiest way to test them is to put them in the folder where your theme is (that you specified in the registry), rename the currently used file, name you test-theme like the currently used one, and close the dwm.exe window. That will restart the dwm.exe and load the new theme.

Already opended windows must be refreshed to see effect.

Good Thread truexfan81! but for the new members and/or those who have not been keeping up with all of the aero glass

tweaking may also be a Good idea to give the registry file setting for the CustomThemeResource with .png file..DP

Does anybody have a list or guide as to what each area in the png corresponds to in the theme?

In my case I went through trial and error while editing the themeatlas to find which area was affecting which element but now I do not remember very well and would not be able to make an accurate guide, sorry.

Here's mine...

This one makes faux rounded corners, especially with dark backgrounds, by using part of the drop shadow to make the edge light. It works with the stock Windows 8 / 8.1 Aero implementation and BigMuscle's Aero Glass for Windows 8 tool.

Personally I don't like that glow effect, so I deleted it. I forgot though the others may like it, or just can disable it in the registry, so I've included the glow back and split into two versions, one with the original glow and another with the rectangular one.

One idea:use custom reflection to make colorful windows.

The Windows 8 theme with some minor changes.

Different subtle shadows around the windows.
A little of glow on the window caption.
Changed the "waiting" animation to the one in Windows 8.

Hey Oomek, do a version1.3 with NeolCs' black min/maximise buttons.. it would be awesome, I love the darkness of your 'X' caption.

I like what GIL did, but it lacks some attitude and glow.

Loving the new themes being created.. I never cared until now. (ala AeroGlass by BM has made me notice the subtle tones and the choices available)
