Mac Theme for Windows 7

Aug 22, 2010 - 158 Comments

Mac Theme Windows 7
If you’re using a Windows 7 machine, why not make it look like Mac OS X? This task is made very easy with a theme/skin set called the Snow Transformation Pack, it turns your Windows 7 theme into a very convincing near complete Mac OS X interface including icons, wallpapers, the Dock, sounds, dialogue boxes, login screen, window skin, and more.

The Snow Transformation pack is freeware and available to download here

Of course if you’re this obsessed with Mac OS, you should probably just buy a Mac and save yourself from the burden of Windows 7 and trying to skin it to look like a Mac, right?

    Amen brother! Buy a Mac, don’t fake it. Or at least build a h4ckint0sh…….

  2. Rich says:

    Just another way for Windows to copy a Mac. They already did it with the Dock (and they say in one commercial they thought if it first.) Lame. I agree. Just buy a Mac, don’t pretend you have one. Of course this could be good for Mac owners with Windows 7 bootcamped. I’d use it for that.

  3. dangerbob says:

    Tried to download this and my University’s firewall blocked it. Just another reason why faking OS X doesn’t pay off.

  4. Brad says:

    To bad the Linux version of this is terribly out of date. Docky works nice though.

  5. ggg says:

    Disgusting…

  6. Chi says:

    guys it just a style, and makes your pc a lil fun to play around with.

  7. Pefu19 says:

    guys, it not worked for me, windows sart orb changed, some icons and style (aero) is the same

  8. Marcus says:

    Worked well on my Dell and it’s the easiest setup. I’m getting a Mac eventually, but until then…

  9. Gunjan says:

    OMG! It’s Mac Os X on Windows!?!? Do it right now, I tried many other websites but all of them didn’t work except this.

  10. mac/windows says:

    listen theres nothing wrong with exploring with ur pc or mac and changing it around, its ur choice since u bought it with ur money. people turn macs into pcs n pcs into macs, either the hard way when they change the OS or the easy way when they change their theme. and to make let it known, macs r not gaming computers, there made for designing the games and codes etc. pcs are gaming computers, there made to play video games and design. so u chose

  11. Mike says:

    THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH GETTING A BEAST MAC IS COMPATIBILITY WITH MY PRODUCTION SOFTWARE, IM SURE IT WILL HAVE MY DRIVERS FOR MY EXTERNAL SOUND CARD BUT IDK, ITS A LIL SCARY TO SPEND THAT DOE AND NOT BE ABLE TO USE IT HOW IT WANT….ALTHOUGH ONE DAY I WANT TO GET AN IMAC…CANT WAIT.

      “doe” = female deer
      “dough” = American slang for ‘cash’, ‘money’, ‘moolah’
      can’t buy a Mac with cervids as far as I know.

  12. dave says:

    Man is this neat-o. Installs flawlessly on my rig. The interface feels fresh on my Win7. Can’t say any cons about it really… its just that there are random ‘popping’ sounds occurring. I can’t tell if it really make sounds for everything I do but sometimes just sitting idle, a noise pops. Can anyone tell me what it is? I can certaintly just tell there are cue sounds for maximizing windows, minimizing windows, opening an app, etc. But being idle and making those sounds are rather odd. I rather not be paranoid something is wrong or someone is looking through my computer.

  13. sollo says:

    you guys dont criticise this.Some of us can’t afford a mac and we need to feel what it feels like to have one. If you are rich enough to afford one,dont look down upon the efforts of the poor.

    • Pratik says:

      Good Words sollo….. Fully supporting you…

      • Pratik says:

        and Macs aren’t for games… in which most are interested … so why buy a mac ???? enjoy Gaming & a lot more on your pc ..

        • Michael Lewandowski says:

          I agree, I’m downloading this on my netbook just to troll apple fanboys. Macs are obnoxiously expensive for what you get. Windows for the win. Let’s see if mac could make a win 7 theme.

  14. Anonymous says:

    I support sollo and ones who criticise this are bizarre beacause after all, even someone who has Mac can change it’s appearence to Windows for a change…

  19. [...] better than that of Windows… and because I had nothing better to do… I downloaded a Mac Skin for Windows 7. What does it do? Nothing really… it just moves some things around, changes [...]

  20. Kmasterrr says:

    Hey guys, i keep getting an error when i try to install.. first was a administrative error that i sorted out.. now it says

    “The file ‘C:\Windows\Modifype.exe’ could now be opened. Please check that your disk is not full and taht you have access to the destination directory. Access is denied.”

    I am using windows 7 64bit. PLEASE HELP. I dunno wat to do, thanx alot.

  21. techtikus says:

    This looks nice, I wanna try it. Don’t really care about the OS war. If it gets things done then I’m happy.

  22. lewis says:

    its half worked but how do i get the real dock thing at the bottom?

  23. Alex Ghiurau says:

    It looks like a mac, but are the functions like control panel the same as windows7? thank you

  24. Cam says:

    Do you have to give you cell phone to the survey you must do? Will it charge me? Seems this is the only way to get this theme..

  25. richard says:

    I don’t recall what it is called, but the bottom of the screen, whatever it is called, is not responding to right clicks or opening anything. How do I fix this?

  26. Kai says:

    can someone send me the link to the theme file? i don’t really want the whole pack >__>

  27. crincr says:

    why not buy a real mac? I mean who wants to fake it and these things never work for me because it always takes too long and stuffs my computer and bla bla bla. So just some wise info, dont download these things

    XD

    • Nic says:

      “why not buy a real mac?” Because they cost to much and they aren’t as good gaming machines as PC’s.
      Thats why people don’t buy Mac’s.

  28. francis says:

  30. Anonymous says:

    Actually, I’d rather download myself a free Macintosh OS X theme for Windows 7 rather than to waste my money on the actual thing. Plus, most applications refuse to cooperate with Apple’s Operating System, which is just a downer.

  31. kirec says:

    Hello, I have a problem with this software. After I install it, there’s no sound on my computer. I looked in control panel/sounds/change windows volumes to windows defaut, but nothnig, there is no audio. Pls help!
    Except for that it’s pretty good!

  32. mad says:

    Hi, this software is great. Everything is working well and nice but i seem to have a problem. Whenever I open my folders of even task manager/recycle bin, the windows do open but they end up going to the side of the screen and i can’t reach them. Please help. Thank you very much.

    Is there a theme with the neutral gray colors like this one, but without the overly mac-ish look (the Apple logo, dock, etc…). Or something with the neutral gray look of the Adobe CS5 programs. thx

    Please provide me with some help on this.
    I have Windows 7 Ultimate

  49. I have to wait to get my Mac. I’m going to be getting a Mac but I have to wait. Until then I want to start to get the feel of a Mac. Not only that, Mac looks really cool, so to make my windows look like that just feels nice. Don’t criticize us for wanting OUR computer to look how we want. Obviously you were looking into it too if you found this page.

  50. graphixgen says:

    hi, i had to turn off UAC before installing this transformation pack on windows 7 ultimate x86. while the installation begins smoothly, a small window pops up stating that system files are being modified & right after it disappears another error window pops up reporting that actioncenter.dll could not be opened & as soon as i click OK the installation is terminated.
    whats going wrong here, can anyone help?

  51. Chris Valenzuela says:

    I have both a pc and a mac, and I’ve gotta say I love the looks -among other things- of OS X so much that I had to look up for this ’til I found it.

  88. GroundGoatMeat says:

    I installed this and now how do I get it off, I tried everything and restored my system, even reloaded windows 7 and I cannot get it off. Its cool and all but I am sick of it. Another thing is the beeping that I think someone mentioned earlier. I can mute my system but when I try to watch youtube videos the beep cuts out the youtube audio and it happens like every second so its really hard to make out songs and stuff. The beeping also seems louder in my headphones. Thanks for making this killer theme and any help you can give to try removing it would be great!

  89. help says:
