If you want your Windows 7 to look like Mac, you need to install a 3rd Party Mac theme for Windows 7. Since Windows 7 doesn’t support Third Party Themes you need to install a program which patches Windows 7 to support Third Party Themes. Following is the step by step procedure.

1. Step  Download Universal Theme Patcher

3. Step Patch your system files
