Valley by link6155 Valley by link6155

This is Valley, the dark variation of my theme, Summit.

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.

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 Valley? 
A: Summit is an original OS X Yosemite Dark mode inspired 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: 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.

  • 6/18/2014: Initial Release
  • 6/19/2014: Vertical taskbar fixed, uncombined taskbar text fixed, minor changes.

Everything works just fine, however the title bar text has a pure black background. Any way to change that?

UltraUXThemePatcher

UXStyle

Use one or the other, NOT both. I recommend using UltraUXThemePatcher.

This is an issue with DeviantART. A workaround for this is to right click the download button and press "open in a new tab" or a similar option based on the browser you are using.

Hey there, I might be a bit late to the party on this, but I installed the theme and it works beautifully except for the fact that the minimize button is slightly off center. Know how to fix this? prntscr.com/6z1460

I don't plan on making a windows 8 version since windows 8.1 is a free (and essentially mandatory) update.

There should be a theme file inside the download. Please provide a screenshot of what you see inside the folder if you cant find the theme file.

Are you sure? I just downloaded the zip and inside it is a folder which contains the .theme file and theme folder.

If I remember correctly, the latest version doesn't require the blank caption font. And, I think that bug is related to the font and not this theme directly.

I'll consider adding a lite option (no shadow with squared edge), but making another variant would require too much time to maintain.

I would suggest using UltraUXthemePatcher instead of UXStyle, but I don't think that is what is causing this. I think there might be some kind of program on your computer that might be turning off the shadow. Are you running any kind of optimization/tuneup program? If so, that may be causing the issue.
