I patched my windows, I downloaded and installed the theme, but it only changes the color. What can I do to change the taskbar because that's what I'm looking for ?

Hey man, great work, loving it so far.
Just one thing is bugging me - I cannot use custom colors on my windows.
Any chance you could make color changing through the customization panel possible instead of having different visual styles with preset colors? Have seen another theme around doing that, but your's has the edge on overall quality, that next level stuff.
Thanks and if you can't do that, it's cool - I'll still be using this, just would be a nice touch.

Unfortunately this theme doesn't have that possibility. I wrote about it many times.

Hi Mare-m, loving this theme. 

I just wondered if you would consider making some matching W8 icons for an Up button so we can have it matching when using Classic Shell? This would make an amazing addition.

Do you still work on windows 8/8.1 themes?

I'm using the windows 8 theme from this and it looks great, even works where other themes cause bugs with some of my programs, but I'm wondering if it's possible to get a transparancy on the window borders? Like what it already has on the taskbar and start menu.

I prepare one more update. Full transparency is not possible in this theme. I wrote about it many times.

Is this possible without the logon screen and the boot screen?
I just want the flat looking windows/borders and taskbar/icons.open without the stupid aero glass/glossy streaks. Is that possible to just choose that in this setup?
Reply
:iconmare-m:
mare-m Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2015
Yep. This is not transformation pack, there is no setup.

Comeha Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2015  Student General Artist
The setup's not automatic. It has plenty of instructions on how to apply each bit.

If you just want the visual style then you can just install that on its own.

Love the theme. Thank you.

One comment, for colors other than the default blue, when hovering on the minimize and maximize buttons the colors are also blue. For example, if I use the green colored Windows 8/8.1 theme, the hover color on the minimize and maximize buttons is still blue.
