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

You're not allowed to upload this on any website, blog or other place. Instead you can link to this page.

Hi! I'm a big fan of this skin, but every since I reinstalled Windows the icons don't seem to be changing. I've tried OldNewExplorer and UltraUXThemePatcher but the issue remains. Is there anything you think I might have missed? Thanks!

I'm pretty sure I followed the instructions correctly, but I can't get it looking like the preview. Know what I'm doing wrong?

See old new explorer in instructions.

Brilliant! Any way I can remove the glossyness from the taskbar though?

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