Thank you for this theme which finally provides me with white title text color and makes me able to use dark colors on window borders

This theme isn't meant to be used on Windows 10 which is why people are getting problems with it, Sorry i don't have the time to update it at the moment as themes for windows 10 are limiting so a lot of things wont work like they did for Windows 8.1.

I cant get this to work with anyones 8.1 themes and im 100% sure its because none of them are Aero Glass compatible even though they say they are.
All the border buttons break like so prntscr.com/9gbb75

Hi, I like this theme but there is some serious problem with it. I'm not sure if it is specific to this one or all custom themes, but I like to use QuickLaunch and if I add it to this theme, it will disappear after restart, though it will not if I use default theme. Any idea how to fix that?

only theme I could find that made windows10 look a little less shit.. unfortantely the os is pretty garbage can't even adjust the colors or sizes of anything todo with a theme anymore.

I'm using your blue design, there are a few issues, the main infocus window title text is black (hard to see on darkblue), the taskbar notification area pullup menu doesn't show anymore (unless I set the theme to win10 default, then back again to your theme, though the style is a bit off, maybe a uxtheme patching issue) Would like to have smaller borders than the default even just 2-3pixels less. And near the quicklaunch bar area is a white line that I can't get rid of, thought it might be because the taskbar wasn't locked but it is.

btw what do you use to make your themes ? is it vistastylebuilder?

Hello,

I have a few programs that I use for work that have a main window, but then other floating windows inside the main. Those sub-windows aren't picking up the white text for the dark titlebar, so they are impossible to read. Is this something you are able to address or are themes not able to change that?

For an example, see here: www.dropbox.com/s/5iqcyui60xph…

Please make scrollbar position marker color non-white, f.e. equal to window border/title color. Currently it is hard to find it visually.

Thanks for the theme, you should mention that a PC restart is required to get the white font working on title bars.

/strikeout/-- I am getting rounded corners for some reason and its creating some ugliness. Not sure what happened here, any thoughts?

EDIT: I had to change a registry value from something I was playing around with before. The issue now seems to be the white like on the border of windows doesn't extend the full window. The one piece of UI is just to wide for some reason.

Any help would be appreciated. I Would actually like not having the white lines at all. Love the look of the copy and paste in purple.

Thanks awesome theme!

Seem like you have changed maybe the border width in the registry maybe or used a tool try setting it back to default.

That's because you haven't applied the theme right, Instal uxstyle then apply the normal windows theme then restart then re-apply AeroByDesignBlue then change the color.

It's a bug, reapply original Windows theme, restart PC, then apply this theme, font changes to white then.

Lol you sure do know how to make people wait man. 3 months since an update with the other colors. Its only good that you've updated at least 1 version to work with 8.1 Update 1.

Perhaps, you should let someone else takeover this theme if you're finding that you don't have time to maintain them.

Too many themes have "died" because their authors just disappear and we cant use their great work on newer versions of Windows. It's disappointing. :(

No as long as I'm using windows ill update it to support the newest version of windows each time, It may have been 3 months but the other colors are only extras to the theme.
