Bello is an elegant theme pack for windows seven that adds a sleek look and feel to the user interface you know and love. After downloading and installing this theme, i was in awe. It left me breathless.
The sleek look of each and every window makes my computer feel more elegant than ever.
Many theme packs have tried to acheive this in the past, but Bello surpasses nearly all of them.
However, this idea has been atempted before. If your theme was a bit more original, i would have given it a perfect score. Keep up the great work!

=kiko11 has created an absolute masterpeice, perfect in every way. Nothing is left out, making the theme feel complete. If your looking to add some design to your desktop, or just want to spice things up, I recomend you download Bello.

Any chance you could make a working win 8.1 version? :)

I really love this theme but how do you change the command bar icons?, I like those little squared buttons instead of the default big ones.

Which pack is it?, I applied Etched to my system and those icons didn't change.

I really, really like this theme and have used it on my desktop PC for months now. But on my laptop I had to change the text size in windows - because of fullHD on 13". When I do this, all buttons (minimize, maximize, ...) and the scroll bar return to default. Also every change which is made by the explorerframes.dll.

Is there a way to maintain this theme with dpi scaling?

I absolutely love the skin. Looks really nice!

However, when I try to replace the explorerframe.dll files, explorer.exe crashes on boot. I tried replacing only 32-bit, 64-bit and 32-bit and only 64-bit, and explorer.exe seems to crash whenever I replace the 32-bit file. I run Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1. 

Anyone know how to fix this?

I can easily install this theme on my other laptop no issue but on my hp pavilion I can't use the provided explorerframe.dll it reverts to the original windows everytime and I know that i'm correctly replacing the file.

I'm running windows 7 x64 sp1 on an hp pavilion dv6-3025dx "entertainment notebook"

When I go to replace the explorerframe.dll in C:\windows\system32 I take ownership of the original explorerframe.dll rename it to .old then place the provided file and proceed by killing explorer.exe & relaunching it to verify the changes.

again this works perfectly fine on my other machines I've tested it out on 4 other computers all worked.

When locating the file I'll just use the search and I noticed there is a 2nd explorerframe.dll in C:\Windows\System32\W7NBC on this system (it's hidden) inside is a batch file an exe and several bmp files of the explorer frame I attempted to replace this file as well still doesn't work but it did change the bmp files to match those of bello's .. I tried changing it in syswow64 still doesn't work. I'm out of idea's I was hoping some one might know how to fix this. Google isn't any help :(
