You cannot change window borders color in this theme. Already talked about this a million times on this pages.

One question! If I want to switch back to Windows 7 theme, will it work or it will stay win 8 forever? Just asking, I have no problem with the win 8 theme, my cousin has win 8 and I loved the theme, but I also like win 7 themes :)

The only problem with this is when you download files from the internet on Chrome, it doesn't let you select where to download

The only problem is that you didn't read the instructions carefully. You probably copied 64-BIT file from pack (explorerframe.dll) in System32 folder and SysWOW64 folder. This is wrong. If you have Windows 7 64-BIT, in System32 folder you must copy 64-BIT file from pack but in SysWOW64 folder (this folder is 32-BIT folder in Windows 7 64-BIT) you must copy 32-BIT file.

This is actually pretty awesome since you could fool your friends into thinking it's Windows 10, since there's a start menu.

Could you make it transparent?
Just like Aero Glass on Win 8 glass8.eu/features.html
