Lucent for Windows 7 by C---M Lucent for Windows 7 by C---M
Update 8 - Added new style with a 24px Taskbar
Update 7 - Font change from Arial to SegoeUI
Update 6 - Changed the color of the taskbar text to white
Update 5 - Some people have requested that I include both the old version of Lucent (without borders) along with the new one (with borders). The old version of Lucent still has and will always have the gap at the top of web browsers because there's no way to fix that.
Update 4 - Borders are now lined up correctly for all browsers
Update 3 - Now with alternative images for the navigation buttons ( see them in the preview )
Update 2 - The small taskbar background is now fixed
Update 1 - Theme now displays under installed themes correctly as " Lucent"

My version of a minimalistic Windows 7 Style

This visual style is displayed best with the "Frost" color at 0% transparency as it appears in the preview

-Lucent Visual Style ( without borders)
-Lucent Visual Style ( with borders)
-Lucent Visual Style ( with 24px taskbar)
-Explorer Navigation Buttons
-Alternative Navigation Buttons

Not Included
-Icons by me- inspired from Metro2 for Superbar by zainadeel
-Winamp - Gaia 10 mod by me - Download Lucent for winamp here
-Led Cinema Display

1. Patch your system files using the Universal Theme Patcher

2. Install the theme
Copy the "Lucent" folder and Lucent.msstyle to your themes directory: "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\" (the path may vary depending on your OS)

3. Change the windows navigation buttons
Use Windows 7 Navigation Buttons Customizer by Kishan-Bagaria to change the navigation buttons; images are available in the folder "Lucent\Images"

Have you thought of porting it to 8.1 using the newest version of style builder?

I don't know how 8.1 works. I don't think I'm porting it.

Is there a possibility you'll update the theme with a new style that is borderless and has the 24px taskbar ? :D

Amazing theme, one slight problem though. I got it to work perfectly, but I accidentally switched to windows classic theme, and now when i switch back to Lucent, all the frames and buttons etc are still windows classic. In fact none of the custom themes on deviant art work. Any ideas? Thanks
