    Yes, for High Contrast based themes.

    Half yes, for Aerolite.*

    No, for standard applied theme, what you use there.

    Special Themes (AeroLite and High Contrast variations)

    * half yes means the the color in File Explorer window will remain default (black) but other programs window can get a new color applied.

    Download UxStyle_Core For Windows 8 and later operating systems
    UxStyle
    Turn off UAC User Account Control (UAC) - Change Settings in Windows 8 reboot, install UxStyle reboot, put theme folder and .theme file(in the zip at the bottom) in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes, turn UAC on.

    In Personalization it will be Gunzorla under Installed Themes

    Could you also change Minimize, Maximize button color, please? And if you don't mind, tell how you did it?
    Or better - how to fix the jumplist?
    Thanks

    I can change the button color, what color do you want?

    I use a beta of Ave's Windows7 Style Builder for 8/8.1

    If you want to fix the jumplists you need to buy Ave's Windows7 Style Builder and get the beta from their forum (you sign up with the email address and key you get) there is a fix their.

    While, it's been 2 years since this post. I cannot THANK YOU enough, Bongo. I wanted a white title bar in W8.1 for the longest since Micro$oft took it upon themselves to change their OS. I don't care for their W8 UI design, but can tolerate it all the more.

    As with previous similar themes, I have the white title bar, but other things were working irregularly for me, particular the taskbar menu for example, but with this theme, no problems so far.

    Again, Thank you for this Theme.

    Hi,

    There´s a new version of Vista builder called "Windows Style Builder" in beta phase, which is very powerful and capable of doing what you have mentioned. I used to change Windows 8 appearance. It´s fantastic.

Hey guys, I'm new here and I haven't much experience with Win8 - I worked with Win7. The question relates to the loading bar colour in Win8. Here you see a example what I mean: 14285 I would like to change it from green to blue for example. Any ideas?
I think I don't miss the window border transparency, it didn't help readability anyway (in fact it mostly made it worse) and it's not so extremely beautiful that I'd want to keep it.
