Google Talk – Blue Theme

This post has been viewed 47560 times since Sunday 28 August 2005 @ 7:55 pm

I suppose you have already heard of the beta version of Google Talk launched last week. It is in fact quite flexible to get customized with its interface. I have create a blue theme for it, if you like it, feel free to download it. :)

Google Talk Blue Theme

The following are some simple steps to change the original grey theme.

  • Download my Google Talk Blue Theme now here. (I have zipped it)
    Downloaded times
  • Open your windows explorer, look for C:\Program Files\Google\Google Talk folder.
  • Rename your original googletalk.exe to something else (e.g. bryantalks.exe), just in case my file doesn’t work, you can still rename back to the original name.
  • Put my googletalk.exe into the folder.
  • Double click and run it.

Hope you like it. :)

By the way, if you would like to format the text as shown in the above picture, you can do the following :-

  • Put _ in between your words to italic it.
    _SapiensBryan_ will become SapiensBryan
  • Put * in between your words to bold it.
    *SapiensBryan* will become SapiensBryan

Enjoy using Google Talk, everyone. :)

p/s: Use at your own risk and you promise not to sue me. :)

    Hi Nathan,

    […] Well, you knew it was bound to happen. Someone has gone ahead and created Google Talk themes! Currently, there are a few colors available, including blue, black, red, yellow, and pink. Installation is pretty simple, too. Download the theme you want, and unzip it. Browse to the Google Talk installation directory (C:Program FilesGoogleGoogle Talk), and rename the application to something else (it doesn’t matter what) and place the new googletalk.exe which you just downloaded, into this folder. Start it up, and you’ll see the new themed version! Below are some screenshots of what it will look like. Have fun! […]

    Looks like you have reverse engineered the Google Talk executable. We will need to take legal action against you.
