I REALLY find the taskbar here more attractive than the one found on Windows 10 IMO.

Sorry but i am a little bit confused. How did you get the idea that this has something to do with Windows Blinds? I never made something for it, and i never will.
The windows borders are drawn with BorderSkin by:iconkomalo:
The taskbar is made with SBar.. You can read it in the description above.
A detailed tutorial how to use this by:iconvishal-gupta:is herewww.askvg.com/transform-window…
The drive icons cannot be changed while the prog is running. Look for it in taskmanager, kill the process.
Replace the icons and reboot. That's all.
Hope this helps.

Von mir auch zunächst ein danke für die Antwort :) 
Noch eine Frage: kann man mit so einem Pack auch für windows 7 rechnen? 
Oder kann ich auch das hernehmen? 
Mich würden nur die Funktionen interessieren die unter windows 7 funktionieren.

Vielen Dank

I always use the GIMP for this. So i can only tell you how to do it with GIMP. Give it a try. It's free.
If you have Photoshop, i think it is very similar.

The setup file is compressed already. You cannot downsize it more. I tried it but no chance.Download it while you are sleeping. That's the way i made it in earlier toimes when my connection was slow.

Obviously you have not unchecked the adressbar and the standard navigation buttons. To remove the menubar look for the option to hide it in the options menu of Styler.

PeterRollar The Visual Style you have given in this deviation is an Aero style like windows 7 & not a windows 8. After installing it my task bar is much similar to windows 7 but not like the screenshot shown above.

:iconpeterrollar:
PeterRollar Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
There is no Aero style VS in this deviation. Don't know where you got it from. It is a light blue theme like the original Win8 ones. The taskbar of the screenshot shows the taskbar modified with SBar, which is included in the package.

1. Don't download SBar from DA. Download it heresbar.codeplex.com/releases/vie…
Be sure it is version1.041
2. Sbar is made for NET framework 3.5
Install it. 3.5 and 4.0 can run side by side.
I've installed SBar on a lot of computers and it never failed to work.
