even with the limitations you point out - as the best theme on win8 it has to be worth porting to win10 - most of it works - the only problem i have is a bit of graphics corruption on the right click menu - the highlighting is wrong and text stays bold - if that could be fixed and maybe the windows border reduced to a minimum it would be up there with the best again

i have tried to fix the menu corruption but dont know where to look - also cannot find the border setting - a few hints and tips would be great if you finally decide not to port it

Important information for everyone!

In Windows 10 Microsoft has deleted all taskbar resources from .msstyles file including jumplists, clock & audio mixer area. Other elements of the system: Start menu, Notification panel, Universal apps windows - are not customizable too.

So, I see no reason to port Snowy8 on Windows 10.

No chance for a barebones version, just the gradient taskbar, start button maybe. I'm willing to donate for it makes a huge difference for me and many other.
Thanks in advance for a reply.

Doesn't work on Surface Pro 3 using 200%DPI, and when I switch back to 150% DPI it works.

Sorry, when I made my style for Windows 8, there were only 100%, 125% and 150% DPI. In Windows 8.1 Microsoft added new DPIs. So, my style doesn't support them, because Snowy8 based on win8 default aero style.

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?
