Summit by link6155 Summit by link6155

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! See FAQs if you're updating this theme from an older version.

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.

harry0smith Featured By Owner Edited Sep 10, 2015
it is a very nice theme, please update it to windows 10 :D
stefan-petrovski Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
I tired it on Windows 10 Pro and it's not really compatible since the start button and time are invisible and the minimize button is a tad away from the other buttons. Still looks beautiful tho hahaha.
Please try to update it for Windows 10, this is literally the only good os x theme out :)
FrancisForward Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2015

TheMikke Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2015

Any ideas how to fix that wrong placed exit button? I'm using UXStyle, Charming theme works fine for me (… )

PolObwain Featured By Owner May 19, 2015

parkjj0308 Featured By Owner May 4, 2015
How can I change the Taskbar Transparency?
I want to change taskbar to unclear
yanne Featured By Owner May 1, 2015
Perfect theme ! but, how can I change the green color of those progress bars because I would love something more soft on the eye.
tunabolism Featured By Owner May 1, 2015
Ok, First i gotta say this is an amazing theme! one of the best themes ever for windows 8! (Along with Simplex RC), But i just want to point out a "bug" and "suggestion"; 1st the bug: , It's one extra pixel on the side bar indicator icon, not really a big deal but i guess it won't hurt it fixing it :), 2nd the suggestion: , This is a suggestion regarding the taskbar, If you add just a 1px line at the top it will look sharper, It could be a personal flavor or something but imo it would look "better" and again sharper giving like a "space" between taskbar and explorer or any open window.
hey, you're probably not updating this anymore, but the last big windows update I had seems to have broken this theme :(

UPDATE: it took a couple of repatches but it seems to be fixed. :)
link6155 Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Seems to work fine for me. I'll still be updating my themes until Windows 10 is released. Then I'll start porting them over.
shivamtarzan Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2015
i tried applying this theme without paching windows , still it works , and after patching also same

VORONKRIEG Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2015
will be a windows 7 version available in 2015 :)
adiRpatgaonkar Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2015
Can i just keep the taskbar black while the theme is applied? If yes how?
rm8385 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2015
What about hidpi screens (Yoga 2 Pro). I managed to install this but the buttons are unevenly spaced and on the small side? Is there something i can do to make it display correctly?
link6155 Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
This theme currently doesn't support high dpi settings yet. You'll need to turn down your dpi scaling to 100% for this theme to work properly.
rm8385 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2015
Sorry to be a noob, but how exactly would I turn my scaling down?
link6155 Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Right click on the desktop > Screen Resolution > "Make text and other items larger or smaller" > slide slider all the way down > Apply
rm8385 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2015
I thought you were referring to something more tricky, I had already tried that but it makes everything too small. Most devices are tending to be shipped with hidpi screens nowadays, will you ever update this theme to work with these devices?
link6155 Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2015  Hobbyist Interface Designer
The way this theme was made makes it impossible to update for high dpi, but I can make a different version specifically for high dpi settings.
rxxern Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2015
This theme is flawless. CURSE YOU!

This is a nice Yosemite visual closest to the original. Ive seen a few that hasnt looked this good.
orcunilbeyli Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2014  Hobbyist Photographer
I am getting black screen. I restored my pc from restore point to fix the issue. Only this and Valley theme makes this error.
link6155 Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Always make sure you do a system restore before applying a theme. Also, could you provide me a little more detail so I can diagnosed the issue? What patched were you using (UXStyle or UltraUXThemePatcher). What version of Windows 8 are you using (Win8, Win8.1, etc.)?
k-khaopun Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2014
This theme is beautiful.
Could it possible to make windows borderless version?
L-u-n-a-t-i-c Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2014
will be available for win 8 ?
link6155 Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I don't think I'll be backporting any themes to Windows 8. I recommend upgrading to Windows 8.1 since Windows 8 is no longer supported by Microsoft.
iChangerTeam Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2014
Using it right now! Absolutely beautiful. Its outstanding! =D
FezVrasta Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2014  Professional General Artist
Could be possible have a version with the taskbar style like the default one of Windows 8? I'd like to have just the windows changed and not the taskbar.
SijieZhu Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2014  Student Interface Designer
Oh,my English is poor...But I like your design.nice work!
0mrdr5 Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014
dude it looks great but you must do this for windows 10 :)
link6155 Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
A Windows 10 version will be coming in the near future :)
