Hi, i really love your theme but im not huge fan of black taskbars. Is there a way to change how windows looks without changing the taskbar? This is my desktop now, i would like to keep taskbar theme like this. i.imgur.com/GCDjIAU.jpg?1
Just switched from Linux to Windows and I think I've installed every VS on DA. This is the only thing that stuck. Very well done. My only (small) gripe is the jump list bug on 8.1. Otherwise, just beautiful.
I istalled this theme and rebooted my pc, only to log in to my windows profile, to find out that the screen was entirely black, no icons, win8 taskbar, no nothing. I had to restore from a previous point.
******IF YOUR PC APPEARS TO HAVE A BLACK SCREEN, AND YOU CANT DO ANYTHING AFTER ISTALLING THIS "THEME" JUST HOLD SHIFT AND REBOOT, IT WILL REBOOT IN TROUBLESHOOT MODE, AND IT WILL LET YOU RESTORE FROM A PREVIOUS SAVED POINT.*****
If you do not have a saved point you might as well format the computer. this is how bad this theme is.
This theme could be considered as bad as malware, and honestly i cannot even begin to comprehend why did you released it knowing that it has this big flaw.
Do not istall this theme if you want to have your pc working in order, expecially considering that other people did istall this theme, and then unistall it, just to find out that it does the black screen issue anyway. Just choose another theme, any other theme really, discard this, its not even that good to begin with.
It's your own fault if your computer gets ruined. You were willing to take the steps in installing the theme, which means you also accept the responsibility of what happens. Just because you had a problem doesn't mean you can deemed this theme as "malware".
You shouldn't blame the theme, much less call it malware, unless you've tested and researched to verify it a bit first. A black screen on boot isn't an uncommon issue. It can be caused by lots of things in Windows 8 - it's happened to me on several occasions, in fact. I don't know exactly why it happened to you, but one thing that I do know that can cause it with regards to themes is if something (perhaps Windows itself) changes the files that your themepatcher (UXThemepatcher or UxStyle) has modified and you reboot with a custom theme still installed. Running sfc /scannow reverts the changes your themepatcher has made, so if you run it and try to reboot without changing to a default theme you'll get a black screen. Uninstalling your themepatcher without changing to a default theme has the same effect. Black screens can also be caused by driver issues.
Regardless though, it isn't the theme itself that's to blame. It's working fine for me and lots of others. A helpful tip: If a piece of software seems to be working for a lot of people but does not work for you, it's probably not malware, it's probably a problem on your end.
this theme is not malware... its the perfect theme for windows 8. even I had black screen problem when I installed certain other themes in my pc, but that doesn't mean tht theme is malware... black screen occurs when the particular pc doesn't have certain configuration.
im using this theme in my pc & my tablet n I don't have any black screen issue (this theme works perfect even with latest microsoft update, just use the updated files from - 'thomasking42').
Looks very nice, very minimal. Does this also address the loading bars on the taskbar? e.g. when you're download something, it is indicated on the icons on the taskbar? or is that still a feature that needs to be addressed, etc?
Cool... working fine... thanx for you n 'AngelWZR' for making this theme perfect for windows 8.1 👍 The main reason why I love this theme is- no border, have cool shadow & there is no need of 'ribbon disabler' or 'aero glass mod' like most other themes...
So here's another update for those who using this theme on Windows 8.1 — now with working context menus on the Start screen. Just replace existing Exon.msstyles with this rghost.ru/57122469 As for the grey titlebar, I've never experienced this bug.
This is not the issue that we really care about at the moment, sure it's nice that you've fixed the contextual menus and what not, but a lot of us cannot even use the theme because the background (inactive) menus is just.. very unappealing to look at.
This theme has not been updated in several months and it's a relatively quick and easy fix for those who know what they are doing within themes e.g. Theme developers and what not.
Furthermore, the link that you gave us, I'm not sure what's wrong with it, but because the host is located in russia, it's taking forever to load for me and then it just hangs, upload it onto mega or fileshare or something.
I have grey title background for inactive task manager, inactive personalization, inactive taskbar properties window (I think all properties windows) n for some portable apps. no grey color for main windows like this pc, documents etc ...
There only three bugs that I can see. The grey title on inactive windows (as mentioned above), the metro tiles mess up when you try to move them around and right click context menu doesn't work on the tiles either.
It'd be great if you could fix the title bar, but I'm already grateful for the jumplist fix.
