This is just a simple Aero theme that has all the white replaced with a light shade of gray that I made for one of the members on Seven Forums, just put the Aero Gray.msstyles in the Aero Folder and and the Aero gray.theme file in the theme folder, as always you will need to patch your system files using VistaGlazz or something similar to use custom themes.

Then choose the theme from your installed themes in the customization section.

Nice ! I'm gonna test it out.
I have a question thou;
I've been looking for some sources and can't find them... maybe You know where they are ?
- main window in explorer; those white stripes.
- in Preview Panel I changed the color of the background upper and lower part but seems like there is a middle section as well according to your screen shot above.

Thanks in advance

Yeah I'm not very keen on either but as Sergio said, some people still like the default Aero style but find it too bright, plus I only made this theme as a request and this was the shade of Gray he wanted to use.

Mr. Grim, THANK YOU for your Aero Gray theme. I have been looking for some way to color the bright white backgrounds in Win 7 for months. Would it be very troublesome for you to provide a copy of this with a little bit lighter shade of gray and also include the Start Menu background in the process? I may be asking too much. If so, I'll continue to use this theme and be glad I got it. I appreciate your time and work on what you have provided to others. Best wishes, Undine.

Sorry I'm a bit busy at the moment but I will consider making another version like this in the future.

Link not working for me either ?
The bright whites of windows really hurt my eyes .This type of theme is the main reason for finding this awesome site.
so much easier on the eyes.

I would also be very grateful if it could be re uploaded:cheeky:
