Install Black Google Chrome Theme

  1. Themes require Google Chrome 3.0+, if you want to apply these themes, please download and install Google Chrome 3.0 (BETA) first.
  2. Click above Free Download Now button
  3. The theme is downloaded as a .crx file to your computer. Confirm your download by clicking Save for the file in the Downloads bar.
  4. The theme will be applied immediately. If you change your mind, just click Back to default in the message that appears at the top of page to go back to the classic Google Chrome theme
  1. Download Black Google Chrome Theme first.
  2. Uncompressed the zip file to your local folder. Each zip file contains two files: the Google Chrome Theme file called "default.dll" and help document called "readme.htm"
  3. Close Google Chrome if you haved launched it.
  4. Replace your original default.dll(I suggest you make a backup of the original first). Here's the path where you need to replace the file:
    • In Vista: C:/Users/[your user name]/AppData/Local/Google/Chrome/Application/[current version]/Themes/

    • In Windows XP: C:/Documents and Settings/User/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application[current version]/Themes/

  5. Restart your Google Chrome.

"C:/Documents and Settings/{User name}/Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/{current version}/Themes/"

I don't have anything in that folder that says "Local Settings"

It's a hidden folder. You should click the menu Tools -> Folder Option -> View in Explorer, and then check the option Show hidden files and folders.

I can't change back to the default (in case I'd ever decide to) and it doesn't show up in my hard drive when I do a search for .crx extensions. It also doesn't show as an extension icon in Chrome
