My Charms Bar is now completely white.
How I get the old colors back (colored windows logo...)? :)

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 would be great!

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?

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……
great theme, hopefully you can help :D

It is an aero glass bug. Ask in official discussion…

Sorry to keep asking questions, but how do i enable the white text at the top of windows. It just disappeared for me and i don't really know how to get it back like it is in the picture. If this is another aero glass bug i'm ganna shoot myself lol D:

In archive you downloaded double-click on "Windows 8.1\Registry\Restore.reg".
