Silk by link6155 Silk by link6155

Say hello to Silk, a Metro inspired dark theme.

Always create a system restore before attempting to modify your system with any themes or tool! I am not responsible for anything that happens to your computer!

Please read the FAQs before commenting!

Do not mirror, modify, or redistribute without my consent. Sharing is OK, but you must link directly back to this page.


FAQs:

Q: What is Silk?
A: Silk is a theme for Windows 8.1+

Q: Theme doesn't look like the screenshot!
A: Make sure you patched your system and you have shadows enable (this is required).

Q: There's a white bar in explorer, how do you get rid of it?
A: You need to use ONE or Ribbon Disabler to get rid of the whitebar.

Q: How can I download this?
A: Press the download button on the right side of the page.

Q: How can I install this theme?
A: Take the content of the zip folder you downloaded and place it in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes. Make sure you patch your computer using UXThemePatcher or UXStyle.

Q: The inactive tabs' texts in firefox are unreadable, how do you fix this?
A: Install this userstyle in firefox: userstyles.org/styles/101995/f…

Q: How do I update the theme?
A: First, make a restore point to make sure you can always go back if anything goes wrong. Afterwards, change your theme to another theme such as the default aero theme. Log off and on, then insert the new theme files in the appropriate location (see above). Apply the theme and you're good to go!

Q: Help! The theme isn't applying and I am getting a grey basic theme!
A: Make sure to patch/override your uxtheme.dll file using UXStyle or UXtheme Ultra patcher.

Q: Will there be a windows 7 version?
A: Possibly, but I currently don't have Windows 7. Please do not ask as I already addressed this.

Q: Internet Explorer looks odd, how do I fix this?
A: There is not fix for this currently. I suggest using another browser until someone has a solution.

Q: May I use this theme in my transformation/customization pack? May I make a mirror/redistribute it? Could I modify it for public use?
A: Absolutely no, unless you have permission from me.

The quickinfo/tooltips that popup if you mouse over files is almost black with grey font, which is hard to read.
Is there a way to change that?
Also smaller right click taskbar menus are all black even if i change the color to white, other ones are fine.
Thanks

I'm going to fix that in a future update. I am currently working on another theme, but once I finish that, I will update this.

Any plans for a darker Grey or maybe more colors like the Tomato?

I don't suppose you can make a Silk White theme for those of us who want to keep the ribbon? Otherwise, this theme is awesome!

Found a glitch: When a bubble/menu appears after hovering over something like a link, it has a black (text) on grey (background) effect which makes it incredibly hard to read.
