The name of the theme is in the (XXL :)) search bar

In the next post instructions how to download and activate them and some extra info.

Installation
  • Download "Licenses.zip", "Everything Themes 1.1.zip" and "EveryTheme 1.1.zip" to your system (resp. : the licenses, the themes and the program).
  • Extract the licenses and the themes to new folder
  • Extract the program to a folder (can be the theme folder, if you like)
  • In the EveryTheme folder is a setting file, EveryTheme.ini. Change the settings to match your situation.
    Currently:
    2018-11-26 11_43_33-C__Develop_EveryTheme_EveryTheme.ini - Notepad++.png
  • Start EveryTheme.cmd
    2018-11-26 11_36_23-C__WINDOWS_system32_cmd.exe.png
  • In the menu that is shown, press "i" (Install)
  • That's it.

Importing a theme
  • If you already have created special color settings for Everything, export those first (see "Exporting your theme")
  • In File Explorer, browse to the folder where you extrascted the .everytheme files.
  • Double-click the one of your choice.
    Now Everything will exit (if it was running) and start again with the theme of your choice activated.
  • That's it.

    Hint: Instead of doing this using File Explorer, you can also use Everything itself! :) Just double-click (or <Enter>) the theme of your choice.


Exporting your theme

If you want to export your current color settings as a .everytheme file, you can do so by:
  • Start EveryTheme.cmd
    2018-11-26 11_36_23-C__WINDOWS_system32_cmd.exe.png
  • Press "E" (Export)
  • That's it.
  • Well ... almost!
  • Don't forget to post your nice color settings here on the forum!! :D


Some remarks
  • I wrote something to convert Notepad++ color schemes to something that Everything can understand.
    Those themes are free to use or change, but most come with a license text that has to be distributed along with the themes. And rightly so, as it is a lot of work to create such a theme. The author deserves credit for that.
    You can find the (original Notepad++) license descriptions in the Licenses.zip file.
  • If you are running Everything as administrator (Don't! It's the cause of a lot of trouble!), there are special instructions for installation and importing theme files.
    If this apply to you and you *have to* run Everything as administrator, I will provide instructions.

In the zip are a new Everytheme.cmd and Everytheme.ini.
Replace the existing ones, change the INI and re-install the shell integration.

Couple of examples for icons to use are in the INI.

For icons in resource files, like
ICON=%SystemRoot%\system32\compstui.dll,-64040
, you will have to look up the resourceID in that DLL/OCX/ ..
You can use a program like IconsExtract (NirSoft). No need to extract the icons; just get their ID. You have to add the "-", like in the example.

Note: You might have to logout (or even reboot?) to bypass the IconCache.


Are we friends again? :D

Oops, the limitations of digital communication ...

I never felt insulted or something similar. That doesn't fit my image of you (based on your postings here) AT ALL.
I was just kidding because of the big contrast between your first and second posting. I thought that was funny.
(Note to self: Never try funny on the internet ...)

I could say a lot more about this, but that would probably cause more miscommunication along the way ;)
(English is not my native language either)

So, long story short: All is good...


BTW: did you already try the icon stuff?

Thanks for testing!

I'll make it an "official release" (ahem) 1.2 then.

Glad you like it (again!) :lol:

How to make the search box big as yours?

Exit from Everything (close program)
In Everything.ini find parameter search_edit_font_size and set it to desired value.
Start Everything again.

Here the 'official' Everytheme 1.2. (it has some extra checks built in).

As a bonus: Some icons that can be used. Those are all Everything icons, but in different colours.
Seems fitting for Everything colour theme files...

Those can be found on this page too, but are included here for the "batteries included experience"

Have fun!

Is there any way to make the theme also apply to the rest of the window? For example the menu bar and so?
To me it looks unnatural if the theme doesn't blend in with the rest of the window and leaves a white patch on top.

Currently, no.
Windows have not provided an API to do this last time I checked. I'm hoping there will be a future API to enable dark themes for any window.

Alternatively, I would have to completely skin Everything myself, which is on my TODO list.

I think you need something like WindowBlinds for that. You can do per-application skinning. (just mentioning it; no personal experience ..)

When I click on an everytheme file, I just get a Windows "How do you want to open this file" message, nothing more. Any idea please ? I started the cmd, even as admin, all seems to go as you explained. Except evertheme doesn't seem to be understood by the shell.
It's too bad to have such a highly configurable everything.ini without a UI for dummies (who said like me ?) to change fonts, colors, etc easily ;)

You might be running Everything as an adminisrator. See original remarks:

If you are running Everything as administrator (Don't! It's the cause of a lot of trouble!), there are special instructions for installation and importing theme files.
If this apply to you and you *have to* run Everything as administrator, I will provide instructions.
If you are indeed running Everything as an administrator:
enable Everything Service and disable Run as administrator.
Both settings can be found under Menu:Tools > Options > General

Hard to tell if we don't know what you did :) Maybe you didn't do anything wrong at all...

When you start EveryTheme.cmd, does it tell you "Shell integration already installed"?
What happens if you double-click an .everytheme file?


BTW: There is also Everytheme 1.2 with a few improvements (a couple of posts above)
