Sharp Flat 8.1  v0.2 by Seahorsepip Sharp Flat 8.1  v0.2 by Seahorsepip
A minimal theme for windows 8.1

This was just a quick side project of Sharp but I still decided to share it.

Install instructions & Help:…

This theme requires oldnewexplorer:…
Make sure to check glass behind navbar in oldnewexplorer settings.

The top border color can be changed in Control Panel\Appearance and Personalisation\Personalisation\Colour and Appearance.

It's recommended to disable the explorer ribbon and the up button. Also I recommend to apply Glow Tweaks:

27-06-14: -Fixed gray titlebar on maximized windows
                 -Fixed darker color behind titlebar text
                 -Fixed taskbar background on small taskbar and top taskbar

Would you consider leaving the min/close buttons as they were in WIP4? I really liked those. Two versions would be the best though.

Thanks, I really love this theme. BTW, do you know how to "hide" the green loading bar from the adress? And, if it's not much to ask, can we have a small icons edition? (Minimize, maximize and close) because I can't see them in Firefox.

Green Bar

Firefox Icons

Again, thank you very much.

Hmm that isn't possible, hiding that loading bar means hiding all loading bars which is a bad idea. I got a ssd so actually never saw it :P

You can also instead use some css in firefox to fix those icons from being overlapped.

Can you tell how to remove windows borders?

Not possible, I just made it look like they aren't there, you can make them smaller with Glow Tweaks:
