VistaVG Blue Refresh for XP by Vishal-Gupta VistaVG Blue Refresh for XP by Vishal-Gupta
After a long period, I'm very excited to announce my new theme "VistaVG Blue Refresh" for Windows XP.

There are 2 versions in this theme as usual:

Blue32 (for 32x icon size)
Blue48 (for 48x icon size)

More Information & Instructions: [link]

If you want black version of this theme, then look at following link - [link]

And if you want Vista port of this blue theme, then visit following link - [link]

Love the theme but I too would like to see if you can fix it so the minimize, maximize, close buttons resize with the changing of the Active Title Bar. When I set it to 18 pixels, it is so that the Iconized buttons in my taskbar show no text at all. When it is at the default 23 pixels, the buttons show the first letter of the program and it looks like crap. The Zune theme from Micro$oft works, they buttons resize fine. If I knew where they were hidden I could fix this myself and may try to find them to have it allow me the iconized buttons with no text. This is the only problem I have with the theme, otherwise it is great to work with. Thanks in advance :)

Yay! Just tried your theme, and it works perfectly!:thanks:
Thank you very much for your work! I like this theme even better than your Win7-theme.
My only point of criticism: I would like the blue colour to be a bit darker...

I would like this theme better if the titelbar buttons were blue and matching, like in Google Chrome or the Windows Live programs in XP. I would also prefer an XP/Royale style start button to the orb. It just never seems to fit in on XP...

VistaVG Blue for XP es un tema precioso pero VistaVG blue refresh for XP es también un estilo bonito. Me gustan ambos.

....................... *** ..............................

VistaVG blue for XP is very beautiful but VistaVG Blue refresh for XP is pretty style too. I like both.

Thats true but I prefer iconpack over shellpatcher, as its easy to restore default icons back or to use other icons when you get bored with the current one. Its safe too.

I like it but the colour of the min/max/close buttons looks a bit out of place from the title bar.

Other than that, it looks nice. =]

I agree, colouring the buttons to match the titlebar would be a huge improvement :)

Excellent VS. Large Fonts mode has some issues. +/-/close buttons becomes disjoined. When changing Font size of the titlebar, these buttons disappear.

Hope you can fix this minor issue.

Wow quick feedback. Another possible bug: the flashing task in the taskbar doesn't color the whole task in orange. There is just a small orange horizontal stripe: [link]

If you fix the Large Fonts issue, can you default font size to SegoeUI 10 instead of 11 currently?

I hope you will make more color schemes of this excellent VS (dark blue, green?). There are so many Black and Vista basic variations so that any color scheme outside of this pattern look really refreshing.

No. Thats not a bug. I created that bitmap intentionally. :)

Reg. to your color request, thanks. I'll keep in mind and will try to make the theme in other colors as well.
