Go Black! Secret “Royale Noir” XP theme uncovered

Tired of Luna? Don’t want to wait for Vista’s new look?

Royale Noir, which was reportedly dropped by MS when they created the Royale Theme for Windows Media Center Edition, has somehow leaked out of Microsoft and I immediately adopted it to be my favorite theme: Looks cooler than the blue Royale theme!


The Download (400k):


  • Extract files from the archive to “c:\windows\resources\themes\royale noir”
  • Double click on “luna.msstyles”
  • Select “Noir” from color scheme
