Top 5 of the best Windows 7 themes for Windows XP

Download some of the best Windows 7 themes for Windows XP.


If you work in a corporate environment you might be stuck with the age-old Windows XP even though you might personally prefer the upcoming Windows 7 look and feel.

Of course, Windows XP cannot provide you with some of the best features of Windows 7 but you can make it to look like Windows 7. Here are some of the best Windows 7 themes for your Windows XP machine.

SevenVG RC Theme


SevenVG RC Theme is one of the best themes that can make your Windows XP look like Windows 7 without using any customization packs. This gives you better control of what you have to replace in your Windows XP machine than a customization pack that’ll force change quite a lot of system resources without you knowing much about it.

SevenVG Black Theme


SevenVG Black Theme is almost the same as then SevenVG RC Theme except that it comes-in a black version if you don’t like those blue colors of SevenVG RC.

Windows 7 V2 Theme


Windows 7 V2 Theme has a great touch of Windows 7 and has Aero as well as Glass style Taskbar. The Toolbars looks good as well with the background color.

Windows 7 Complete Theme


Windows 7 Complete Theme comes with a mix of Windows Vista and some Windows 7 flavors.

Windows 7 Theme for XP


Windows 7 Theme for XP from Sid Crafty is a simplistic theme that mimics the Windows 7 Taskbar more precise.

Windows 7 Mod for XP


Windows 7 Mod for XP is another simplistic Windows 7 theme that has a great looking Windows 7 Taskbar in glass. It looks the theme itself uses a lot of glass features. Looks cool.

These are some of the best Windows 7 themes for your Windows XP machine. Again, the point is to avoid those customization packs that force replace a lot of system files.

All these custom themes would require a patched “uxtheme.dll” file. It’s pretty simple, you need administrative privileges to do this but if you have the permission it’s pretty straight-forward.

For Windows XP SP 3
For Windows XP SP 2

I hope you liked these themes and I’m sure once applied you’ll love the new look of your old Windows XP machine.

    my pc is not english if i use “Windows 7 Complete Theme” and replace files does it matters?

  3. demogeek

    It would be always safer to have a restore point created before you try anything drastic like these. If you don't know how to create a restore point please read this article that explains how to create a restore point in Windows Vista.

    I have not tried any themes on Windows XP, other than the Microsoft Zune theme.
    But now that I've been using Widnows 7 for some time, I wanted my old Windows XP box (I keep it around to play an old game I like) to look a bit "nicer", so I thought I'd try some themes.
    Thank you for this page – VERY nice looking result!
    Seeing some people had troubles, I'll post what I did to make it work on my machine – hope it helps!

    Here is how I got things to work on my XP machine …
    Downloaded the Windows 7 Mod for XP (had to use the "For XP SP2" link – but that's OK – go there and you'll see why) and then simply extracted and ran the UXTheme Multi-Patcher.exe file. Rebooted when prompted and then download the Windows 7 V2 Theme and extracted the files into a folder that I named, XP7Theme. I then went into that folder and found a folder named "Seven". In that folder was a file, "Seven.msstyles." I just double-clicked it. It opened the Disply Properties, Appearance tab and all I did was click "OK". Then I had a Windows 7-ish looking desktop, etc. (I did have to manually install the wallpaper, but the other settings seemed to work.)
    Hope that helps anybody who was having difficulty installing.
    Oh, I should also mention – I was using Windows XP Professional with SP3 and was logged in as the Administrator. On any other version of Windows (IE: XP Home) make sure that the user doing the installing of these themes has Administrative rights!

    HELP! I was trying to install the "Windows 7 Complete Theme" and now my PC won't stop rebooting! It goes until the "Windows XP" loading screen, but then it goes black and reboots all over again. It never reaches the desktop. :<
