View Full Version : Panther Brushed Metal In Finder

Just wondering if there is a way to turn off the brushed metal look of the Finder windows im Panther?

I prefer the Aqua style windows, or whatever they are called..

Other than pressing the button in the top right hand corner, no.

Though there are a few skinning apps out there I suppose - I haven't tried to remove it but I'm sure you can hack it out somehow.

Try searching macupdate.com (http://macupdate.com), or perhaps somebody here might have a more specific idea.

Try reskinning your osx using ThemeChanger (http://themechanger.sourceforge.net/).

There are some sites listed there where you can download themes - just make sure you only try to use themes that are designed for your version of osx. Look for a skin called Demetallifizer.

It doesn't load skins that are in guikit format (used by Unsanity's payware skinniing program). GuiKit2Dlta (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/17263&ei=s8EDQ9rXG4Kq-gGmxpTLAg) will convert guikits into ThemeChanger's native dlta format.

I currently use "Paper& Plastic (http://www.resexcellence.com//themes/XiAP/05-27_paper_plastic10_lg.jpg)" on 10.3.9 and people constantly ask me, "What version of OSX is that?" :)

I highly recommend ResExcellence (http://www.resexcellence.com/themes/) for themes and tutorials.
