Video: How to Make Windows XP Look Like Windows 7
Hey everybody, I just got done watching a video I have been waiting for from one of my favorite YouTubers Gigafide.
This video clearly shows how to make XP look like Windows 7 so I thought I would share.
You will need the download zip located on the Tinketnut Forum, which can be found below
Download: WinXP/Win7 FilePack
To quote: I've combined all the applications into one zip file. Here are the files that are included in the above link:
- Windows 7 RTM theme for XP
- Icon Tweaker
- Taskbar Shuffle
- Aero Shake
- Aero Snap
- Drive Icons
- Show Desktop

Thanks. Think I'll give this a try.
Any downsides? I recall this being done when Vista came out (make XP look like Vista), were there any issues then?

Sorry but I don't see any reason not to update to Windows 7! Instead of Windows Vista which was really bad, 7 is almost as fast as XP and much more secure.
I tried to make my XP look like Vista but some of the programs occassionally crashed or didn't work at all on my system. Don't mess around and waste time, get yourself 7 if you want to have your Windows look like 7

In other words windows 7 ran better on my computer without a graphics card then my computer does xp with a graphics card in it.

I used to love theming XP but after a while the themes started slowing my pc down.. now i just use the Zune theme.
