From the "Navigation Buttons For Black" Readme.txt: "2.Copy "ExplorerFrame.dll" file from folder "Windows 8~8.1 Extras\Navigation Buttons for Black Theme\64-BIT" to "C:\Windows\System32" folder. Also copy "ExplorerFrame.dll" file from folder "Windows 8~8.1 Extras\Navigation Buttons for Black Theme\32-BIT" to "C:\Windows\SysWOW64" folder."

I haven't done this yet but I wanted to double check: are these instructions correct - to put the the 64bit dll into the system32 folder and 32bit dll into the syswow64? This seems backwards...

Is it possible to change the color of the explorer to white (see screen)?, because I use the programm Clover to get tabs in the explorer.
I think Clover make a own window and show the explorer in it.
So is it possibel to color only the top background of the explorer to white? That your theme looks more like Windows 8/8.1

I am use Windows 8/8.1 Color 5 Theme.

I really love this theme and I'm using it for like two months now. Thank you so much!
Unfortunately, there's just one thing that doesn't seem to work for me. I tried using the black theme several times now, but it just won't work. Could you please tell me what to do?
