Say hello to Summit for Windows 8.1 :)

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!

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

Dark variation here: Valley


Q: What is summit? 
A: Summit is an OS X Yosemite inspired theme for Windows 8.1

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: 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: This doesn't look exactly like OS X Yosemite!
A: This is my take on Apple's flat style, so does not necessarily match OS X Yosemite 100%

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: Will there be an Aero version?
A: I'm not sure as the creator of Aero8 is not the nicest guy in the world.

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.

1. I don't think that's possible to fix the way the address bar was designed

2. That's not possible to fix, it's just a problem how windows manage margins.

Uh, this happens to me when I install the theme and use it.

The theme isn't compatible with StartIsBack. You will need to apply another skin on StartIsBack if you want to use it with this theme.

It still does it when I apply another skin. Man this sucks.

Changes that u could make: 1)Make the shadow under windows more larger and faded-out(like in real mac); 2)Rounded shape pop-up text box look; 3)different context window look(cause its look similar to default Windows 7 aero theme or whatever; and again make it rounded not square). I am not trying to make you busy, just asking you. If you could make these changes, the theme would look really dynamic. Thanks. Overall the theme is just perfect.
