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.


Q: What is Valley? 
A: Summit is an 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.

Do you know about this bug ? (I'm using Blank Caption from Neiio)

Below comment's SS has this bug too !!

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 haven't this bugg with other theme or Aero theme ! :(

anw. can you make a unrounded Border Version ?
link6155 Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
I'll consider adding a lite option (no shadow with squared edge), but making another variant would require too much time to maintain.
