Almost flawless the only thing left is to make the selection square in start menu flat exactly like in win8 with start8

Hey Man, thank you for all your themes and stuff.. I have one question? While Im in Windows 7, I enjoy this theme, and my question is: Can you make borderless version with Windows 10 resources maybe? I will be in love with "Windows 10 Aero Theme for Windows 7", pleaseee? :D
Or just add one more "aero" .msstyle in your "Windows 10 TH2 Theme for Windows 7"? It would be greaaat.. :)

Looks gorgeous, particularly with ie9-styled explorerframe buttons. Feels just like aero with a modern facelift.

I'm liking this theme, but is there any way to intensify the text glow? This would help readability on dark backgrounds.

Ah ha! I figured it out :-). Using the Aves Vista Style Builder, I was able to export the DWMWindow>TextGlow element (as described at the end of this thread: superuser.com/questions/310924…) from the original Windows 7 theme and import it into the file for this custom theme. Curiously enough, the dimensions of the files were slightly different, but I just went ahead without resizing and it seemed to work okay. Preliminary testing has shown no negative side effects so far and has been a runaway success, with the readability of the text being vastly improved on darker backgrounds. You may even wish to incorporate this change into the official theme.

Why is that? I ask because the original visual style has a more intense glow that allows the text to be seen much more easily when the background is dark.
