Simplify Slim VS for Windows 7 by dpcdpc11 Simplify Slim VS for Windows 7 by dpcdpc11

Now available for Windows 8/8.1!!!

get Simplify 8 for Windows 8/8.1 now!

This one is made with a single goal in mind: Usability With Style!
Hope you like it!

Feel free to Support my artwork! ... thanks!

UPDATE 04 (Jan 21, 2013)

- added another style version 4-1 which is a combination of version 4 and the transparent taskbar of version 2.
Hope you like it!

UPDATE 03 (Oct 21, 2012)

- added version 4 visual style. Yeah baby... it's a 1px border VS... now with small little circles as caption buttons!
Use Windows 7 Aero Blur Tweaker to remove the ugly blurry window edges! NOTE: I can confirm that latest Firefox and Thundebird work perfectly with this 1px border VS... the usual bug is NOT present!
- also included in the pack my FourSome start Orb

UPDATE 02 (Sept 28, 2012)

- added version 3 visual style with dark grey opaque taskbar. This pushes usability even further. Now you can use any wallpaper you like without having to worry about the taskbar's transparency. My favorite version yet... Enjoy!

UPDATE 01 (Sept 09, 2012)

- added version 2 visual style: 28px height taskbar (small icons); 43px width taskbar icons. From experience this brings more usability to the theme. Yes, there's no Start Button in the preview... here's how to do it:…
- redesigned the taskbar thumbnails to better match the theme.

Full view ScreenShot: here!

TIP: to stop the damn glow effect of the icons in the taskbar, Go To Computer>(Rclick)Properties > Advanced settings > Performance > Settings: UnCheck Animations in the taskbar and Start Menu

Package includes:

- the theme itself
- Explorer Navigation Buttons
- Windows Start Buttons: Blocks Borderless Start Orb and FourSome start Orb

What's not in the package:

Icons used in the preview: Token by brsev

dpcdpc11 Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
Honestly I don't remember... I'm on Win8 now and can't test the theme.

don't worry i have that wallpaper that i ask and i have only 4 folders on my desktop + Computer and Recycle bin it is really fit for Simplify Slim Theme :3 ( i keep my desktop clean)
dpcdpc11 Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
why not get rid of the folders all together?
if you have the Explorer pinned to the taskbar then you don't need the Computer icon.
You can replace the recycle bin with this little software:…
And you can add a new toolbar on the taskbar with the shortcut to your other folders.
This is what I do at least cause I like my desktop really clean!
XadarxBlack Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2014 you know a way to keep my icons some were else ???? i have 3 folders with programs (games,programs,and some doc) i need a way to have all of them at hand :3
dpcdpc11 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2014  Professional Interface Designer
like I said... on the toolbar.
You should never ever keep stuff on the desktop like folders...
make a folder on your main partition with a name like "+" or something, then move the 3 folders from you desktop there.
now right click on the taskbar>toolbars>new toolbar and select the "+" folder.
You'll get something like this:
To make the access to your folders even easier, you can create a toolbar for each of them and you rename them using some ASCII symbols to make them look cooler
Now you have a clean desktop and 3 folders at hand!
Let me know if you need any help.
