Thank you!

(1955 - 2011)












Hello everybody!

Recently I have uploaded a new Video on Mac OS X theme on Windows XP/7.  I have noticed that most of the Videos and Blogs are full of "How Tos" on converting XP to Vista or Seven.  Here I have tried my best to write a tutorial on how to change your old boring looks of XP to Mac OS X Leopard.  Please ignore my bad English and Blog Typing (As I am very new to blog writing). Thanks

"How to install Mac OS X theme, skins, interface and applications on Windows XP and Windows 7".

In this blog, a detailed step by step guidance is given for changing your XP/7’s old looks to that of better looks of Mac OS X.

The blog is divided into two parts: first part is wholly dedicated to Mac OS X theme on XP/7, and the second part is dedicated to Mac Applications on XP/7.

Please also visit my page on YouTube for many other things, such as Google Chrome, Windows Vista and 7 theme on XP, Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, Linux, web browsers, etc.

Before going further into this post, please read "VERY IMPORTANT NOTE" at the end of this post.

Don't forget to give your precious comments and suggestions at the end of this page.

Thanks.

First take a look at my YT Video:





Note: Most of the following themes, skins and applications are for Windows XP, but they will also work on Windows Vista and Windows 7.

PART 1

VISUAL STYLER


For Mac OS X Leopard Theme on Windows, you have two options:

1.  Mac OS X Visual Styler and True Transparency
2.  WindowBlinds 7 (Recommended)

1. Mac OS X Visual Styler and True Transparency
For Windows XP:
For applying Mac OS X Theme through Visual Styler and True Transparency on Windows XP, you will be needed to download:
True Transparency with Mac OS X Leopard Theme running on Windows XP
Instructions:
  • Run UXTheme Patcher before applying Mac OS X Leopard Visual Styler Theme, otherwise, the theme will not be installed.  During patching, Windows XP may require XP Installation CD, DO NOT INSERT THE XP INSTALLATION CD, OTHERWISE, THE UXTHEME PATCHER WILL FAIL TO PATCH.
  • Restart your computer
  • Now unzip the Mac OS X Leopard Visual Styler Theme folder and copy the folder to “C:\Windows\Resources\Themes” (the default folder for VS); and
  • Then apply Mac visual styler
  • Now unzip the downloaded True Transparency folder to “C:\Program Files” folder, and then run True Transparency
  • Now unzip the downloaded Mac OS X Skin for True Transparency folder and copy it to “C:\Program Files\(True Transparency folder)\skin” folder
  • Now right click True Transparency icon in the status bar, then click Skins and then click Leopard skin. Your present Aero TT skin will be changed to Mac skin
For Windows 7:
For applying Mac OS X Theme through Visual Styler and True Transparency on Windows 7, you will be needed to download:
    2. WindowBlinds 7 (Recommended)
    WindowBlinds 7 is a third party freeware for applying Mac OS X theme and other interesting themes on XP.  MSStyler Theme is not a perfect match of Mac Leopard, many of the visual features are missing, for e.g., the close, minimize and restore buttons are given on right hand side of title bar, instead of left hand side; menus and taskbar are not transparent; etc.  WindowBlinds gives you almost a 100% result in changing the looks of windows to Mac OS X Leopard.  Besides this, you can also add transparency effects to your windows and change the colors of the windows (only in full version).  And most important, you don’t have to play with your Windows XP/7’s original files.
    For applying Mac theme on XP/7 through WindowBlinds, you will be needed to download:
    WindowBlinds 7 with Mac OS X Leopard Theme running on Windows XP
    Instructions:
    • Install WindowBlinds first, and
    • Then install Mac OS X Leopard WB Theme.

      FINDER FOR WINDOWS

      For Windows XP:

      Windows Explorer looks like Mac OS X Leopard Finder

      Let’s take a look at Finder first.  What Finder is? Finder is a Windows Explorer like application for Mac.  It has a toolbar and a search bar. A slim menu bar is always appeared on the desktop, whether the Window is opened or not.  To see which version of Finder you are using, click Finder and then click About Finder.

      In the left hand side of the Finder (Window), you will see shortcuts to different places on your computer, for e.g., Macintosh HD (Local Disk), iDisk (Second Hard Disk), Documents, Applications (Programs), etc.

      To give the look of Mac’s Finder to Windows Explorer, you will be needed to download:

      Styler Toolbar

      Mac OS X Leopard Toolbar

       Mac OS X Leopard Inspired Toolbar

       Mac OS X MobileME Toolbar

      Findexer
      Instructions:
      • Install Styler Toolbar
      • Now unzip the downloaded Mac OS X Leopard’s Finder Toolbar Skin for Styler, and copy the folder to “C:\Program Files\Styler\TB\skins\Styler’s” folder
      • Now run Styler from Start Menu and apply the Leopard theme in Toolbar tab
      • Check Hide Menu Bar (Explorer)
      • Now install Findexer (as per the instructions given in the downloaded compressed folder), and then restart Windows to see the changes
      • Now unzip the Mac OS X Leopard Findexer Icons + Installation Instructions and follow the instructions for changing icons, fonts and colors of Findexer, in order to make it look like Mac OS X Leopard.

      FINDER PREFERENCES

      You can get the Mac OS X Finder Preferences clone on Windows XP / 7.  Although it's not functional but will give you can exact look of the original.
      Instructions:

      • Unzip the folder and copy the unzipped folder "Menu Bar" to C:\Program Files;
      • You can create a shortcut in the Findexer's left side pane of the Explorer or anywhere else you want.

        FINDER MENU BAR

        There are many software that provides Finder Menu Bar for Windows XP and Windows 7, but I found this one most suitable one for my computer:
        Note:
        •          Finder Menu Bar will replace your Taskbar, you will not be able to switch between different windows in the way as you usually do in Microsoft Windows.  For switching between different windows, click Windows to see different windows in the list, or use Alt-Tab button on your keyboard.
        •          If you want to access your Start Menu while using Finder Menu Bar, just click Window logo button on your keyboard.
          Finder Menu Bar

        MAC OS X DIALOGS AND INTEGRATED ICONS (LEOPARD MODS FOR WINDOWS)

        For Windows XP:
        To change overall looks of Windows XP icons and dialogs to that of Mac OS X, you will be needed to replace the following patched files with the original files:
        •          mydocs.dll
        •          shell32.dll
        •          explorer.exe
        •          xpsp2res.dll (if you are using Service Pack 2 of Windows XP Professional Edition)
        •          msgina.dll
        •          *.cpl files (for changing the Control Panel icons)
        By replacing these patched files with the existing original XP files, the entire OS environment is changed, namely, folder icons, program icons, my computer icon, network neighborhood icon, right click taskbar properties, about windows dialog, copying/moving/deleting progress animations, replacing dialogs, etc.
        But BE CAREFUL, MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE BACKUP ALL THE ORIGINAL FILES IN A SAFE PLACE ON HARD DRIVE BEFORE REPLACING. To replace these patched files with the original ones you will be required to download Replacer and Windows File Protection Switcher.
        Instructions:
        1.      1.     Run WFP Switcher. Window may give file protection error, ignore it. DO NOT INSERT YOUR ORIGINAL XP CD, OTHERWISE, WFP SWITCHING CANNOT BE EXECUTED. After finishing with WFP Switch, restart your computer.
        2.      2.     Replace the following Patched Files with the originals using Replacer:

        "mydocs.dll", “shell32.dll”, “msgina.dll” and “xpsp2res.dll”

        I.     Run Replacer, a command prompt window will be open;
        II.     Drag and drop your original "*.dll" from "C:\Windows\system32" folder on Replacer's open window and press enter;
        III.     Then drag and drop patched "*.dll" on Replacer open window and press enter;
        IV.     Replacer will ask you whether to replace the file. Press Y and enter;
        V.     Replacer will take a few second and your file will be replaced.

        "explorer.exe"

        I.     Close all the running applications on Windows;
        II.     Right click taskbar and click Task Manager;
        III.     Click Processes, then right click "explorer.exe" and click End Process. All the icons and taskbar and even sidebar will be gone;
        IV.     Now click File in Task Manager and click New Process;
        V.     Click Browse;
        VI.     Now go to the folder where the patched "explorer.exe" is located and copy it to "C:\Windows" folder. Windows will ask you whether to replace the existing file. Click Yes. Thus in this way, you can easily replace patched "explorer.exe" with the original "explorer.exe" without even using Replacer. Make sure that "explorer.exe" is not running, otherwise, it will not be replaced;
        VII.     Now restart your computer;
        VIII.     You may notice that some icons have changed to Vista icons and some do not. Create a new user account in Control Panel => User Accounts. Logoff your present User Account and then Logon the newly created User Account. You will notice that all the old-looking XP icons have been change to Vista icons.

        “*.cpl”

        I.     Run Replacer, a command prompt window will be open;
        II.     Drag and drop your original "*.cpl" from "C:\Windows\system32" folder on Replacer's open window and press enter;
        III.     Then drag and drop patched "*.cpl" on Replacer open window and press enter;
        IV.     Replacer will ask you whether to replace the file. Press Y and enter;
        V.     Replacer will take a few second and your file will be replaced.


        If you have any problem in running Replacer, see my video on how to use Replacer to replace original files with replacement files.

        For Windows 7:
        To change overall looks of Windows 7 icons and dialogs to that of Mac OS X, you will be needed to replace the patched files zipped in a folder with the original Windows 7 files.

        ALTERNATIVE MAC NAMES FOR WINDOWS FOLDERS

        Rename the following to match with Mac OS X:
        •          My Computer = Owner’s Name or Computer’s Name
        •          My Documents = Documents
        •          My Pictures = Pictures
        •          My Videos = Movies
        •          My Music = Music
        •          Local Disk (C:\) = Macintosh HD
        •          Other Local Disk (D:\) = iDisk
        •          Recycle Bin = Trash Can 
        DO NOT RENAME THE MAIN SYSTEM FOLDERS, i.e., WINDOWS, PROGRAM FILES and DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS, OTHERWISE YOUR SYSTEM WILL NOT RUN.


        DOCK

        The dock is your shortcut bin where you can get to the programs you use most often. It also shows icons of all the programs you are running.  It is a very important and perhaps the most powerful thing for a Mac user.  It works like Taskbar for Mac. For more information on Mac Dock basics, click here.
        In Windows XP/7, a Mac like Dock can be installed, which will perform all the basic functions of a Mac Dock.  For installing Dock on XP/7, you have two options:
        •          Stardock’s ObjectDock
        •          RocketDock (Recommended)
        Stardock’s ObjectDock
        Stardock’s ObjectDock is a freeware.  Some of the features are disabled in Free Version, and it has a trial period of only 30 days.  Besides this, it utilizes your computer resources more than RocketDock.  Although it has more features and functions than RocketDock.
        Stardock's ObjectDock
        Instructions:
        • Install and run ObjectDock first,
        • Now unzip the Mac OS X Leopard Skin for ObjectDock folder, and copy it to “C:\Program Files\Stardock\ObjectDock\Backgrounds\Tabbed” folder
        • Now right-click Dock, then click Dock Settings, then click Appearance tab, then select OS X Leopard from the menu under Background, and then click OK
          RocketDock (Recommended)
          Although the Stardock’s ObjectDock is of a high-quality application, but some of its features are disabled and it also takes too much of your computer memory.  On the other hand, RocketDock is a software which is 100% free to install, and which does not take too much of your computer’s RAM.
          RocketDock
          Instructions:
          • Install and run RocketDock first,
          • Now unzip the Mac OS X Leopard Skin for RocketDock folder, and copy it to “C:\Program Files\RocketDock\ Skins” folder
          • Right click the dock and click Dock Settings
          • Now click Style, you will see a list of themes installed
          • Now click Mac OS X Leopard and click OK

            Dock Enhancements

            Icons

            Stardock’s ObjectDock

            • Unzip the Mac OS X icons for Dock folder, and copy it to “C:\Program Files\Stardock\ObjectDock\Bundled Images” folder
            • Now right click the icon on the dock, for example: My Computer, and click Dock Entry Properties
            • Now click Change Image
            • Select the icon in the Images box, and click OK

              RocketDock

              • Unzip the Mac OS X icons for Dock folder, and copy it to “C:\Program Files\RocketDock\Icons” folder
              • Now right click the icon on the dock, for example: My Computer, and click Icon Settings
              • Select the icon in the Icons box, and press OK
                Note:
                If you have already replaced the patched files with the original files, i.e., “mydocs.dll”, “shell32.dll”, and “explorer.exe”, you don’t have to install icons for system folders and files.  However, certain programs’ icons can be changed, for example:
                •          Windows Movie Maker = iMovie icon
                •          ACDSee / Picasa = iPhoto icon
                •          Notepad / WordPad = Text Edit icon
                •          Windows’ native Address Book (could be found in Accessories) = Address Book icon
                •          Command Prompt = Command Prompt icon
                •          Control Panel = System Preferences icon, etc.
                All these icons are included in this compressed folder.

                      Tweak UI (For Windows XP)
                      Now you have to hide My Computer, My Documents, Network Neighborhood, Internet Explorer and Recycle Bin icons from the desktop.  To remove these icons, right click desktop, click Properties, click Desktop tab, click Customize Desktop, then uncheck all the icons and press OK.  Now the Recycle Bin has been left to remove.  Microsoft has created a program which is used for tweaking Windows XP, i.e., Tweak UI Power Toy.  It is just a 147 KB sized program, which can do a lot of tricks with your XP, including removing Recycle Bin from desktop.

                      Note:
                      Some of these screensavers are in *.exe file formats, therefore the Desktop Properties wont show it in the screensavers list. You have to manually start the screensavers from “C:\Windows\system32” folder.

                      PART 2

                      EXPOSÉ and SPACES

                      Exposé:
                      Exposé is perhaps one of the most famous features of Mac OS X.  It is a windows management tool.  Through Exposé, a user can quickly locate an open window, or hide all windows and show the desktop without clicking through many windows to find a specific target. For more information on Exposé, click here. Install any one of the following:

                      AnthaBounce

                      A light weight software that enables Exposé feature on Windows.

                      Topdesk

                      A light weighted software but not much as compare to AnthaBounce.  It has some other good features also.
                      AnthaBounce as Mac OS X Expose
                      Spaces:
                      Spaces is a virtual desktop management feature and an integral part of Mac OS X Leopard.  Spaces enables users to create multiple virtual desktops suited to the unique needs or work habits of the user.  For more information on Spaces, click here.  Install anyone of the following:

                      Windows XP Power Toy – Virtual Desktop Manager

                      Spaces is similar to Windows XP Power Toy – Virtual Desktop Manager, so I have included the official Microsoft link to VDM.  Download and install the application, it will give the same result as given by Spaces, and it does not even take too much of your computer’s RAM.

                      MySpaces

                      MySpaces is a heavy-weighted software for having Mac’s Spaces feature on Windows.  Besides this it also requires .NET Framework 2.0 before its installation.

                      iTUNES and QUICKTIME PLAYER

                      iTunes, a substitute media player for Mac, is also available for PC at no cost.  It plays all your digital music and video.  It also syncs content to your iPod, iPhone and Apple TV.  Like Windows Media Player, it has also a built-in media library, which stores your media on your computer or across network.  Like iTunes, QuickTime Player is another media player developed by Apple.  It is a light weighted media player as compared to iTunes.  It can play a number of formats of digital video and audio and images.  The Pro Version of QuickTime captures video and converts different media into a variety of formats.  Both iTunes and QuickTime Player are must, if you are a big fan of Mac OS X.
                      iTunes
                      QuickTime Player

                      GARAGEBAND

                      GarageBand is an exclusive Mac OS X Leopard application that allows users to create music or podcasts.  It is an ideal package for music lovers.  For more information on GarageBand, click here.  For Windows XP users, although Apple’s original GarageBand is not available, but you can get a better alternative for your OS, i.e., Accoustica’s Mixcraft.  Mixcraft, like GarageBand, is a music editing application for Windows.
                      Accoustica’s other music related software:

                      PHOTOBOOTH

                      Photo Booth is an exclusive Mac OS X application used for taking photo snapshots and video clips with the built-in iSight camera in a Mac or other webcam. Photos and video clips taken with Photo Booth can be emailed, used as iChat icons or as photos for contacts in Address Book, or imported into iPhoto. It includes a number of effects that can be applied to photos. For Windows XP/y users, alternatives for Mac’s Photo Booth are:

                      SAFARI

                      No need for introduction.  Just remember one thing, Safari won’t work with WindowBlinds.  When you run Safari, the browser window will be shown in Windows’ native visual styler not in the WindowBlinds theme.

                      iPHOTO

                      iPhoto can import, organize, edit, print and share digital photos. It is designed to allow importing from digital cameras, scanners, picture CDs and the Internet.  iPhoto is not available for Windows, but you have better alternatives to iPhoto, for e.g.: Google’s Picasa and ACDSee.

                            VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
                            Since some application files might have been "patched" or "compressed" (packed) to work properly on your XP system, therefore, some "false alarm" or "false positive" may happen to some clean *.exe installers/applications /installation processes, although they are actually CLEAN & SAFE and does not pose a threat to your system. The term "false positive" is used when an Anti-Virus Software wrongly classifies an innocuous (inoffensive) file as a Virus. This incorrect detection may be due to heuristics or to an incorrect virus signature in the database of Anti-Virus. Usually some great and famous Anti-Viruses (such as Kaspersky, AVG, Norman, McAfee, etc) won't have such problem so far. If that happens to you, then simply ignore it and continue installing as it's guaranteed actually 100% safe and clean by me and other guys who are posting these applications. But again, it's still your own choice and right to decide.
