Create Custom Chrome Theme

To create a custom Chrome theme

Your design is saved in the Chrome Extensions folder on your computer. And how do I create and deploy my own custom themes in Google Chrome? Updated: This option no longer works in new Google Chrome releases. Even though Google's new Chrome web browsers don't allow you to modify their design, this Tutorial allows you to create custom designs. You can even create your own designs.

Chrome UI filenames are saved in a unique "default.dll" one.

You only need to modify this to create your own design, and there are already some finished designs available for downloading. Here's a step-by-step guide to installing and creating custom designs in Google Chrome: 1. First, you'll need to find this default.dll in order to substitute or modify it.

Opens a Chrome folders containing chrome data. If you are now in the "Application" directory with the first stage, you will see a directory with accidental symbols in the name. Go to this directory and go to the "Designs" directory. That' it, you will find the filename "default.dll" in this area. Make a back-up of this data before you replace or edit it so that you can recover it if you want to keep the standard review.

Open this now in the "Resource Tuner" and extend the BINDATA-directory. Inside this directory you can substitute the PNG data with your own PNG data. Make your own PNG picture with the same size in Photoshop, Gimp, etc. and then substitute the PNG in the default.dll with your own.

In order to substitute the PNG files with your own, choose the PNG files in the Resources Tuner and click "Ctrl+Shift+E", another dialog will open asking for your own one. Ctrl+O, navigate to your own PNG files, choose them and click the Open icon, then click the OK icon.

Once you have substituted all the required ressources, store the filename and you have done it. Because Chrome PNG support PNGs, there are many ways for theme makers to bring visibility to their designs. It is also possible to dowload some finished third-party designs. Simply browse to the "default.dll" user defined default filename and click "Download".

Substitute the standard filename with this new one, as described in the above example.
