There are a lot of great Windows 7 themes out there. If you like clean Aero themes, the following list of top themes is a must for everyone who loves customizing their computers.
Keep in mind that not all of the 3rd-party themes have the typical Aero see-through shell, but they are all very clean or have a transparent shell. Please take a minute to bookmark this for later. We will be adding more Windows 7 themes shortly.
Static 2.0 is definitely one of the most beautiful Windows 7 themes I used lately. I like the idea of the colorful taskbar icons, the colorful shell, the colorful Windows search. Color can be used so effectively and this theme makes use of it! I really hope that we something like this in Windows 8. The Metro UI is using a lot of colors as well, so if Windows 8 themes come close to this I will be very happy – else we have to create some more custom Windows 8 themes
Static Polished. An updated version of the Static theme above. If you are sick of round corners and no colors, you will ove this one.
Another very hot Aero desktop theme! If you don’t like the hover effects of the default Windows 7 caption buttons and you want a bluish glow when you hover over the caption buttons (close/minimize/maximize) then this be the perfect theme for you. It also modifies all of the Windows icons if you install the theme correctly.
Oh beautiful nature! Another great custom Aero theme that will modify not only your caption buttons and forward/back buttons. The theme includes 6 different “sub” themes, which is quite amazing. Also, I very much like the thin borders. According to the author, window frames and scrollbars are both thinner.
top, top-small-fonts, bottom, bottom-small-fonts + an extra variation of the bottom versions
You’re a Star Wars geek? Then you need the Force theme that will greatly modify the shell of your Windows 7 computer and make it look like a Star Wars UI. Awesome theme:
Another light Aero theme with a transparent shell with some decent new buttons inspired by the IE9 and Firefox 4 browser buttons:
Light Celestica is another light theme with some very cool close-minimize-maximize buttons.
A really fine custom Windows 7 theme is this new version of the Celestica theme:
Looking for something extravagant? Something pink? Something that is really different? Try this Cupcake visual style and you will have a VERY unique Windows 7 desktop:
One of my favorite themes on this list is this fully transparent Aero theme with new back/forward buttons
A rather special theme for Sonic fans who want to customize their Windows 7 PC with something that not every Sonic fan has:
A very beautiful Aero theme is this Emerald theme. A greyish theme with very elegant caption buttons. I think this would work great together with XLefty that will move your caption buttons to the left.
A very special transparent glass theme for Windows 7 is iFluxyii. In the preview below it looks like the taskbar buttons are centered. To achieve this, you can apply a really simple trick: Create an empty toolbar and make it so large that it will center your taskbar icons. If you need some more intructions, a tutorial will follow shortly.
One of my favorite custom Windows 7 themes is this Maverick theme! If you like Ubuntu, you will love this theme. It’s a 1:1 copy of the Maverick Ubuntu UI. Only works with Aero enabled.
Another beautiful visual style for Mac lovers. It doesn’t come as close to a Mac as our Windows 7 Mac theme (at the very top), but it’s a very nice theme nontheless.
A rather simple theme with new caption buttons.
Yet another glassy Windows 7 theme but with Office-like window frames (rectangle, the corners are not round as they are by default). Includes a full installation guide. It works on both Windows 7 32-bit and Windows 7 64-bit. Includes some animated shellstyles.
Yet another Mac-like theme. I’m not so satisfied with the caption buttons, but a good try:
Pure Windows is a really hot theme. If you want a beautiful glossy Windows 7 Aero theme, try this one. It also modifies the look of the taskbar icons. If you are tired of the very large taskbar icon borders, get rid of them!
Wow! A beautiful theme. Very minimalistic glossy theme with some pretty decent caption buttons. Very good work. The taskbar icons are also pretty cool.
Shine 2.0 is another visual style that will modify the glow effect of the caption buttons and the window frames. I’m loving it.
If you like customizing Windows 7, you have to try out this visual style for Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit. Silica has some really fresh new taskbar icons, captions buttons. Modifies almost the entire shell. I like the thin window bars. Very elegant work!
Reddit fans pay attention! This is a beautiful theme inspired by the Reddit.com design. If you want to customize Windows 7, but want to crate your own custom Windows 7 themes, you should consider starting with this basic theme.
You like the Windows Vista UI? How about using this Windows Vista Theme for Windows 7? Looks great, works and makes you want to go back to Vista .. well better not ;)
Oi! A beautiful Visual style for Windows 7 is this Wave theme. I definitely like the caption buttons. The back/forward buttons are inspired by the Mac theme. Thin window frames, not as round as the default UI. Good!
Looking for alternatives to the default Windows 7 themes? Try this light-dark theme. A pitch-black navigation bar always works great.
Elune is another beauty. Oh boy! This theme will completely alter the look and feel of Windows 7. If you want a very fine elegant Windows 7 theme and you are bored of your default Windows 7 Aero themes, try this one!
Last, but not least is a rather static theme with bluish colors and a very small start button. If you like grey/blue tones, try this:
