Download Theme


PeaZip file manager themes customizes main program's archive manager / file manager GUI appearance, colors, and icons.
Alongside pre-set themes, custom and user-created themes can be applied from Option > Theme selecting "Custom" in the Theme dropdown menu and selecting a custom theme package i.e. xyz.theme.7z.

PeaZip 7+ version accepts as icon sources arbitrarily sized graphic saved as 32 bit or 8 bit PNG with transparency.
Icons will be scaled at runtime to be rendered fitting system's icon size (or approximate size that can be efficiently rendered), up to 10x zoom - in example a small icon can be rendered ranging from 16px to 160px.

Themes currently embebbed in PeaZip application packages contains graphic is saved as 32 bit PNG with transparence.
Folders 16 and 32 contains x3 zoomed icons (48 and 96 px)
Folders 48 and 96 contains non zoomed 48 and 96 px icons

Legacy themes available on Themes v1 directory on SourceForge can be applied to PeaZip releases prior 7.0, and Themes v2 can be allied to any version from 7.0 to 8.2.
Current Themes v3 revision is largely compatible with v2 revision, but packs more options in the theme file, which can be parsed from newer PeaZip releases, 8.3 onward.

Appearance of widgetset objects rendered by the system are not affected by PeaZip's themes settings, as PeaZip does not attempt to bypass native drawing methods, for stability, security, and performances reasons.
This limitation apply to all platforms, please note the system-rendered objects varies in different platforms.

PeaZip is fully functional in dark omde on Linux and macOS systems.
Windows 10 Dark Mode colors are not passed from system to application: querying a W10 system for UI colors currently get light mode colors in response even when dark mode is active.
This implementation of dark theming is unique to Windows 10.
As workaround it is possible to set an High Contrast theme, which passes colors consistent with Dark Mode UI appearance, until a complete API is made available to developers, or W10 is fixed in order to correctly pass real UI colors values to applications when queried (as every other operating system does).


PeaZip Theme packages can be created (or saved for back-up) using PeaZip, from Options > Theme > Create Theme from current settings, a theme package xyz.theme.7z will be created on the desktop; it is a standard 7z archive (which is automatically extracted by PeaZip theme manager).

Please note that system icons (i.e. on system's context menu, and for associated file types) are not affected by themes. On Microsoft Windows systems, system's icons are stored in \PeaZip\res\icons\ path and can be edited with a suitable editor or replaced with custom icon files; on Linux system's icons (in PNG format) are stored accordingly the distribution and the desktop environment policies, i.e. \opt\kde3\share\icons\ or \usr\share\icons\

Customizing PeaZip themes

To further customize themes, or to remove unwanted themes, “Manage Themes” opens the path containing themes, that is located in user’s application data for installable versions or inside PeaZip’s folder for portable versions.
Theme’s graphic can be edited with any graphic files editor capable of working with 32 bit PNG with transparence, and theme.txt can be edited as UTF-8 text.

Distributing PeaZip themes

Themes add-ons can be freely distributed as independent packages, as long copyright/copyleft licenses for the graphic elements used in the theme is respected.
If you are interested in contributing a theme for being distributed with PeaZip please contact me at the mail address on Online support page.
The file note.readme (plain text) is inherited from the original theme, please edit it with relevant information and credits about the new theme if you plan to publicly release it.
Custom, user-provided icons, themes, graphic and other resources can be found on PeaZip's Resources folder on SourceForge.
