Disable this feature in OldNewExplore. In my theme adress bar has a background. ONE doesn't hide it. To add compatible with this feature I must to make another version of the Snowy8. But this is not rational.

Странный ты, по-английски написать комментарий смог, а вот файл ReadMe.txt читать не стал. Внимательно его прочти, я там предлагаю 2 решения этой проблемы.

Оба варианта работают. Ты либо применяешь файлик с реестром, перезагружаешься -> наглухо скрываются заголовки. Либо устанавливаешь Aero Glass, ссылка на скачивание есть в ReadMe. Крякнутую версию этого софта ищи в гугле. Вот и всё =)

Hello Carborunda thanks for the great style!
I have two questions:
How can I change the maximize/minimize/close buttons to the original/standard size?
I have an additional button that moves the window to the other monitor - how can I manage to get it being white colored as the other buttons?

1 - Why you don't love my buttons? If you return back originals, they will be black and without shadows. Anyway, you can change them by using Windows Style Builder or other program that can view resources in the files. Use Google to find more detailed instructions.
2 - This button is not the part of the theme or windows resources.

I love your buttons - I just would like them to be a little larger.
I will try the Windows Style Builder, I'm completely new to this ;)

that button to move the window to another monitor is from DisplayFusion. You can customize the icon in it's config.
Just find the original image, and invert it, then use that.

Wonderful theme, working like a charm! Not sure if already asked, but is it possible to get a black title version? Like the old versions, when we could choose between black and white text on titlebar...it would be great!

:iconcarborunda:
Carborunda Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2014  Hobbyist Interface Designer
White text on titles is enough for everyday use. I see no reason to add versions with black text on titles.

:iconledoweb:
ledoweb Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2014
Well, the black version was more convincing to me...I find that white text so out-of-place, it's the only white string in the entire UI. Moreover, if you use a light color for window borders (using Aero Glass), the text often mixes with the background and that's not very good.
It shouldn't be hard to make two versions like Snowy8 always had in the past, more flexible for every user and its own setup of background and colors, but if you don't want...I will get used to that white! This theme is so good anyways...

I've also noticed that there's loads of lines displayed on tree views using this theme that just get in the way and look ugly, they overlap the arrows on the left hand side. Can these be removed?

Love it but could we have a version without the stripe on the left side of the context menu? Also the highlight colour when hovering items in the context menu could this be the same colour as set in the theme?

Hey
i downloaded this theme and its not really working. im on windows 8.1 and i have aero glass on. i moved everything to the resource folder, ran the install.reg file, and now all the corners and titles are acting weird. i didnt disable the ribbon bar or install oldnewexplorer because it says it's optional
anyway here are links of what it looks like, the second one is when i put the cursor in the bottom right corner of the screen where youre supposed to see through the windows

Мой же комментарий из другой темы.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Hmm, my W8 can't be patched or what.
Installing UXstyle, copy theme files.
Apply theme, got Lock screen - entering Desktop - Nothing changed."
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Толком не понимаю, или не патчится, или патчится не до конца. Может есть идеи ?

Is there anyway to get solid windows without using Aero Windows Enabler?  I like the solid design more from Windows 8.  This Theme is great but it have an underlay under the text.  The registry is not really a fix since it get rid of the text title completely.

На моей системе почему-то NOD32 конфликтует с этой темой (или с UxStyle). Выражается в том, что если установлен нод и тема, комп виснет при загрузке винды. Т.е Винда загружается, а затем черный экран. Если удалить нод, то все работает нормально.
Ставил на чистую обновленную систему. Было такое на 2-х разных компах, но на ноуте например такой проблемы не было. Даже не знаю, с чем это может быть связано...
