How to Create a Vista Black Style Theme for Google Chrome in WinXP

How to Create a Vista Black Style Theme for Google Chrome in WinXP

Have you seen the screenshots of Google Chrome on XP as well as on Vista? You might have noticed that the interface absolutely looks different. So, do you want to make your XP version of Chrome look the same as Vista’s slick black theme? Try this custom hack from The Geek:

Installing the Custom Theme

First you need to download the patched theme here. Open up an explorer window and then paste in the following to the address bar:

||  %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\Application.2.149.27\Themes  ||

You’ll see a file called default.dll. Make a copy of this before you do anything else.

The paste the default.dll contained in the theme’s zip file into the same directory. You will be prompted to overwrite the current file (it’s okay since you’ve already made a copy of it earlier).

At this point on, you can already start up chrome and check out the new theme. 😉

How to Remove the Theme

You can simply delete the new default.dll file and replace it back with the copy we made (the original that we backed-up) prior to overwriting it with the one from the patch. Easy, right? 🙂

Disclaimer:

Please take note that these themes will have to be re-patched (or replaced) every time a new version of Google Chrome is announced or released, which expectedly, could be quite often.
