    That's cool.
    I'll have to go and check that out. I especially like the look of the icons.

    If you theme your PC, careful with AeroGlass.. That thing screws with Win8/8.1 bad on some systems.. Before they ironed out some of the bugs, I went through 8 wipes before I gave up and waited til they smoothed out the themes for Win8.1.. It still doesn't work right for my system. I personally don't think it's needed, but I guess transparency behind windows and such would be cool. Just not worth wiping my PC for it

    That doesn't sound good.
    I found the website, but couldn't find the theme you'er using. However, there were plenty of others to view.
    Right now I'm using the hc-midnight-blue theme and I like it a lot. I guess I'll stick with the theme I'm currently using.
    I don't really feel like going through what you experienced.

    It's just AeroGlass that does that.. DWM is not something that is native to Win8/8.1.. And all those extras you don't have to install.. I got them all but AeroGlass and they work great without it

    Instead of Aero Glass you can use Transparency. Just make a copy of the icon and place it in in startup folder:



    Place a shortcut on Start Screen
    To open start menu shortcuts folder:

    1. Press the Windows + R keys to open the Run dialog
    2. Copy and paste the path below into Run, and click/tap on OK.:
      %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
    3. This will open:
      Click image for larger version
      Now you can place a shortcut(drag & drop) here and it will show up in
      your Apps Screen, you then will be able to pin it to start screen

I don't know what to call the old desktop since the tile version is called Metro. But when working on the old desktop version and you want to clear everything off the screen and just view the desktop, where is the button for this? XP had this button, but cant find it on W8.
