21 Topshells and VS for XP by pankaj981 21 Topshells and VS for XP by pankaj981
Hello friends :aww:!! This pack contains 21 topshells for :windows:Windows XP. They can be used with any Visual Styles of your choice.

For using them, you have to replace the "shellstyle.dll" file inside the Shell folder of your desired Visual Style folder. I have included the Visual Style shown above in the screenshot, with this pack. It contains 2 sub-styles, but both are empty. If you want to use them then copy any of the 2 shellstyle.dll files into the Normal Color and Topshell2 folder inside the Shell folder.

I have also included matching Styler Toolbar skins in this pack, but they can only be used with the Visual Style that I have included in this pack. I will upload Styler skins soon, which can be used with all other Visual Styles too...just check out this page from time to time.

This pack contains:

:bulletblue: Visual Style
:bulletblue: 21 shells

As again, I would like to say that soon I will add Styler skins which can be used with other Visual Styles.

If you like it and want to modify this VS or shell, you can freely do that...just ask me once for permission.

Hope you all like this...comments are most welcomed!!
:aww: NJOY!!

Very nice theme, thank you!

I'm just having problems with the styler skins - I can't get them to work.
Someone here said "To use the matching styler skin, copy the desired folder of styler skin into C:\Program Files\Styler\TB\skins\Styler's folder."

Apart from that there is no such folder in either Program Files or "Programme" (I'm using a German XP) - nothing at all changes when I make that folder and put the .png files in.

Can someone please tell me more exactly what to do with the .png files, please?

Then download UXThemePatcher and patch your system before using themes and visual styles else only Microsoft themes and visual styles will work on your system.

oh at least number each one of the shells in the screenshot so people wont have to go through ALL of them until they find the desired color.

how do you install the theme?
Reply
:iconpankaj981:
pankaj981 Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2008
To install the VS:
Copy the Topshell folder from the Visual Style folder and paste it into C:\Windows\Resources\Themes folder. Double click on the *.msstyle file and click apply, its done!!

To use a particular shell style, copy the desired shellstyle.dll file into the Normal Color folder or Topshell2 folder inside the shells folder of the Topshells Visual Style folder.

To use the matching styler skin, copy the desired folder of styler skin into C:\Program Files\Styler\TB\skins\Styler's folder.

I love this shellstyle, but I have one request. Could you please list which shellstyle is which? It took me about 5 minutes to track down one of the black ones, and it was just a hassle. Overall, I love the styles and they match my themes just great, just would be easier if they were labelled or named better ;)
