Kombo is another great set of visual styles by kiko11.

These themes bring either dark or light to your desktop, and deliver the expected result beautifully.

Just a quick note: the themes don't appear on your desktop exactly like they appear in the preview, you need to mod some icons and use tbariconblanker to achieve a similar look.

The bevel effect is great, and the whole suite just screams for consistency.
The CAD theme is great too, and really fits with the rest of the VS.

The VS is kinda hard to read, although I do believe that this is the point of this minimal VS.

Overall, Great Job!

He did it again =kiko11...

As always surprise us again with these two visual styles that are perfect for use with desktop windows, Both visual styles combining quality , elegance , finesse and above all a touch of minimalism make them unique.

The Sombras Visual Style certainly will make your desktop look elegant and attractive at the same time without losing the touch of minimalism.

The VS Snow looks awesome, combined with clear wallpaper will make your work environment or your desktop look especially relaxing and elegant.

no doubt these two visual styles are highly recommended for all Windows users who want to make it look more elegant and above all make your desktop more nice and pleasing to the eye.

What's IP theme name?
SaberPeep Featured By Owner May 5, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love the theme, but I found a bug: Selecting then deselecting an icon (especially in the details view) still looks selected. Basically, the last-selected item highlight is the same as the selected item highlight, making things very confusing.

Can someone tell me how to install this theme? I can't change icon in windows explorer and start menu button. Please, help.

Do you know if there is a version of the theme for Windows 10?
finnnnR Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2015

Only if it would have also had a more darker bersion...
topramenGG Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015
The 'run' dialogue box is not themed. Any way to fix that?
cooldeepuv Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2014

FieryLoki Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2015
Indeed it is. It was my favorite visual style on win 7. I am looking for a similar dark grey theme for win 8.1. Did you manage to find an alternative?
PSueky Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2014
Search bar of Google Chrome is black, can I change it?
PS: I love this theme, good job.

I consider myself a seasons computer user, and I know my way around the system files but I am having the hardest time getting the explorerframes.dll to work on my windows 7, 64x bit PC.
I have tried every tutorial and application out there it seams and yet I still have not managed to get the explorerframes.dll working.

Love it mate, but the ExplorerFrames.dll download won't work, could you possibly re-upload it to another site? Many Thanks!
MonsterSandvich Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2014
Fixed the problem but the Sombras x32 ExplorerFrames.dll doesn't work, it still give me the default one after I replaced it.
jzmngzmn Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2014
Hola :) No puedo instalar estos temas, seguí los pasos igual como explicas y no funciona. Lo raro es que hice lo mismo con "Oscuro" y con ese sí funciona, ¿estoy haciendo algo mal?
jzmngzmn Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2014
Ya vi mi error, era la carpeta incorrecta. ¡Muy buen tema!
Alex4italia Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2014
Hi, what do you use to view your images? is it artsage or something similar? :)
Los botones de vistas y help? No están. Y como se cambiarían?..
givesnofuck Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2014  Student
No te entiendo. Cuales botones?
NicolasVisceglio Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2014
Justo debajo de "Search Computer". Mira como me han quedado a mi: W 7 U SP1
NicolasVisceglio Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2014
Muy buen trabajo, Kiko. Es el mejor.
MarkKoz Featured By Owner Edited Jun 17, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
I am loving the snow theme! My only concern: The text is too grey. It makes me think everything is un-clickable (because when options are not available they are usually greyed-out.) Is there a way to make the text darker?

Also, what is the icon set that is being used in the photos?
WhiiteShade Featured By Owner May 20, 2014
Loving this theme, but I have a question. Do you have the .PNG image called "Sombras" in your preview? I think it would make a beautiful wallpaper. Thanks!
RageMachine71 Featured By Owner May 14, 2014
I'm using the Sombras theme right now and I'm loving it.

But I gotta ask, what icons are you using in that preview?

If they don't actually exist, can you suggest minimalistic icons to use with the theme?
Neverrmind Featured By Owner May 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I spent like an hour+ last night working with another theme from another artist and it ended up deleting aero and fucking shit up,
but this took me like five minutes.
i need to tell you that i love you.
RageMachine71 Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2014
Any chance that it could work with Windows 8.1?
givesnofuck Featured By Owner May 2, 2014  Student
Sorry i don't support win8!
Kriojenic Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2014
In the dark version preview, can I have the "Sombras" image?
youngfoever8 Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2014
i can see that you draw the inspiration from chinese scroll paintings, it does have the beautiful touch of a chinese landscape painting,only it's more modern and futuristic,and add some minimalism in it,really love it!thanks for sharing!
StarostaElIdiota Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2014
Does it work on w8.1?
quitedumb Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014
hey! i just installed the theme recently and really like it. one minor problem though - how do you change the icons of the navigation bar? like the favorites, libraries, etc. those tabs, as well as the HDD icons? i couldn't seem to find them included in the .rar file so i have no idea. thanks for any help.
kuma-playsguitar Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2014
I love it :)
head-of-silly-walks Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2014
Thank you so much for this theme! This is actually the first them that I have ever put on a theme, haven't up to this point due to fear that it would corrupt my files or something, your video was very helpful! Though, what value do I have to change to make the font color brighter on the Sombras theme? Again, thank you so much!
jcurtiswood Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
I don't like how all of the UI elements lose definition/separation in the dark version. The subtle gradients and outlines are gone. It's just too flat..
Vector-Chan Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014
For x64 which explorerframe files do you replace? just the x64 or both or what?
celroid Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2014
After messing up and getting a ton of problems I finally got it working. Here's what you need to do.
If you have windows 7 64-bit get the ExplorerFrame from the x64 folder and put it in system32. I repeat system32.
Leave syswow64 untouched.

If you have windows 7 32-bit copy the ExplorerFrame from the x86 folder.

You're a lifesaver! I'll have to set up a virtual machine and test it tonight.

Vector-Chan Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2014
What program did you use to make this? I'd really like to change to main blue font colour to #bde077.
MrAl3n Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2013
Re downloading this lovely theme, just one suggestion.. the site that hosts the explorerframes comes with a lot of malicious spyware/adware so you might want to consider re-uploading elsewhere for the noobies.

CrowleysPyramid Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2013
Is there any reason the arrows and some icons in my documents folder haven't changed?
