This looks really amazing, want to use this theme too. But I have 2 questions:

1) Will this work with my "normal" Windows 8? (Don't really know what RTM ONYL means)
2) Do I need to install both programs mentioned in the instructions under 1), or is the first one enough?

thanks & have a nice day.

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to post them there ^^

And ignore the rtm, that was meant back in the day for people who used windows 8 preview versions(CP etc)

There are 2 types of bugs both can be fixed,
-startmenu/jumplist bug: use startisback(gives you windows 7 menu though)
-Windows title bug: change colorization color to white or use aero glass 8.

It's impossible, you can only hex edit the colors but can't change it like images because they aren't images in a dll or such :/

Some kind of code conpatable to htm with hex colors only then a bit more complex and encoded making it somewhat impossible to edit:/

Would it be possible to add the "mouse over" colors to the minimize / maximize / close window buttons, just like the original Windows 8 theme has? Find it weird not having it...

Anw, wonderful work, exactly what i was looking for!

If you want something more detailed, checkout Glow.

i said it once already but thanks a lot for the wonderful theme, it's my daily driver now, i've been trying the free version of glow too but when i switch, i can't see the difference, maybe i need to restart my pc first, but anyway it's great. i just wish there was a version more light greyish, like dream: [link]
the white is very nice but in the dark it's not very easy on the eyes. other than that it's perfect! thanks

yeah I plan to work a bit on that point with glow and uxstyle happens to fail sometimes, go to taskmanager then services and then restart the "unsignedthemes" servcice ^^

Wonderful theme! Simple and usable. :)

For those that like it even more simple and don't use the ribbon (I just use alt to get the normal menu) I'd recommend these adjustments:

Ribbon Disabler: [link]
Remove command bar (after reverting to win7 style auto-hide does not work right): [link]
Set your colors to black (will not affect your borders/titlebar with this theme, only your taskbar): [link]

Result: [link] :)

tbob13 Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2012
Sorry, I meant auto-hiding the command bar does not work properly.
Use this line instead as spacing is a bit different in Win8:

<Element padding="rect(0rp,0rp,0rp,-40rp)"/>

I guess you use uxstyle?
If so go to taskmanager->services->unsigned themes->rightclick->restart

Oh wait you mean [link]
it should work and it's not a service so the fix I just said can be ignored.

Did you install the patch as a admin?

yes.right click and run as admin,but it not change.i don't understand.
