You need to buy a licence for the software.

Any idea on how to fix this issue? The gray background behind titles have been driving me insane since I installed your VS.

You need to install AeroGlass.

Wow this is a nice theme great work here!  I can't wait for the dark theme, hopefully it gets integrated to the theme.

Might I ask how did you go about creating this? Are there any links to tutorials in getting started? I can only find tutorials on how to install themes but not actually create them.

If you manage to make a small height taskbar (even smaller, like those of 22px height) im following to get an update.
Is this possible?

Alright, this patcher didnt work for me, found another one which worked.

About the theme now :D
You're the first one to actually make an effort making a thin taskbar and i really appreciate that!

Some things i noticed (see screenshots).

1) Title bar's buttons minimize, close, maximize, should be fixed. When i select 9 size to match the taskbar's height, they're kinda misplaced.

2) Right click menu, feels strange and the selection is not so clear (i think that hovered item should be more in contrast). Checkboxes feel small too).

As for aesthetics, i believe titlebar would be better if completely black like the taskbar, with white font. Is there any way i can help you with these?

Caption buttons are in large size so it will not suit small title bar, I'll try to make a different highlight color for context menu.

morxgr Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2015
Would you mind if i make you some buttons (min, max, close) scaled down to small sized title bar?
Isn't it possible?

Black titlebar also suits better with this theme.

Oh something else! When i get a message on skype, taskbar's button doesnt blink highlighted as on stock theme :(
Cant see that i have a message, color stays black!
