    Aero Lite Taskbar


    After following the tutorial published by Brink as regards disabling the Taskbar transparency, I now have a solid Taskbar colour using the Aero Lite theme. It does the trick (thanks). A problem is that I like a black Taskbar and the theme gives black text for the clock, hence the clock is invisible. The text needs to be white.

    I know about '
    Opaque Taskbar for Windows 8' and am currently using 'T-Clock' (many different colours can be used). Just wondering if there is a way to make the clock text white by editing the Aero Lite theme, so avoiding any extra programs?

    With thanks

    Hey there, I like darker taskbars as well, but as you know - Windows 8/8.1 isn't too friendly with darker bars. You can patch your system using UX Style (Create system restore first recommended). If you've already patched your system, then using this theme from Deviant Art is what I currently use to be able to use darker taskbars but have white text. Here's what mine is able to look like (it also changes the text at the top of windows and such), mine isn't black, but it's a dark blue and white icons. Hope this helps ya!

    Thanks very much for that IIXGHOSTIIX. Good to know there is a way of making the text white and I'll give it a try ..although having run T-Clock for a while, I might stick with that. It can be set up to give the appearance shown below and Only O.1MB showing in Task Manager.
